On August 30, 2016, Anonymous posted a "quite disturbing" video of a young woman caving in to herd behavior by standing up whenever a random beep was heard in the waiting area of an eye exam office ("Xenia eye clinic"). The video went viral on Facebook, with 78M views (though surprisingly, not on YouTube).
While this experiment is similar to the monkeys ladder experiment, the video is probably staged, though it features Dr. Jonah Berger, a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, expert on social influence.
What is the source of this video sequence, obviously cut from a longer feature, and to what degree was it staged?
mirror other peoples' behavior to fit inand how that is different from "being sheep"?
