Two youtubers, a boy (Ruben_sole) and a girl (Cynthia), are taking fun by recording them touching strangers hands on a mall escalator. The video is really funny and the first example is well representative of the rest. The girl touches a guy’s hand, who tell her that he is going to jump over the guardrail to join her. The girl responds “Yhea come over”, provocating the guy. The guy try to passes the cup he is holding to a friend, who’s unfortunately to slow to understand the situation.
The video is really interesting to observate peoples reactions when they are approached in a seduction context by strangers.
Most of the guys don’t understand what’s happening when it’s Ruben_sole who touches them. Most of the time, the youtuber encounters the same reactions. The touched persons can simply don’t react or ignore the youtuber. Most of the time they begin to laugh, but sometimes they repel firmly the youtuber, or even insult him, as it is the case at 02:09 and 04:02.
Cynthia has better results and much more positives reactions. At 06:19 we see the first example of the video but in full version. The guy touched by the girl downs the escalator then turns around and tries to join the girl who was going up.
It seems that Ruben_sole managed to seduce a guy with the “touching stranger’s hand” method. Indeed at 08:22 it begins to speak with one a guy that he touched in the escalator who seems to appreciate the situation !
