A Social Experiment Testing How People React to a Young Child Smoking Cigarettes in Public

This video documents a social experiment detailing how people react to children with a cigarette habit. The ten-year-old child in the experiment walks around asking various people to light a cigarette for him. Most of the people just react with horror or even anger. Many people ask him his age. Some smokers actually started asking him for cigarettes themselves. Another smoker gave him a light while remarking that she started smoking at the same age.

The video concludes with a man who has an artificial voice-box warning the child not to smoke, since cancer from years of smoking caused him to lose his voice. He offered the most important reaction in the whole video. People should please  SHARE this video on Facebook, since it helps demonstrate the nature of the modern smoking taboo, while also delivering an anti-smoking message that is obviously still relevant even after decades of negative press against cigarettes.
