This TV Promotion Turns Friends into Accomplices

Just as How to Get Away with Murder is a show that pushes legal students to their limits, this TV promotion for the show tests how far one friend is willing to go for another.

The prank involved calling a friend on the phone and asking them to cover up a crime, although the situation was not made so clear to the victims of this prank. In all of the cases here, the friends were eager to protect their accused friends no matter what, whether that meant lying to the people who were posing as law enforcement officials, or removing evidence that would get their friend in trouble. Along with the video, a survey conducted for the stunt also reveals that a third of people would do jail time in order to protect a loved one.
