Good concept..!!

They're already in the building - what's the chances they've already got tickets? I'm troubled the kind of social experiment aspect of this - if I saw a guy slap a woman I would be triggered to do something, intervene or something interruptive, and if I found out it was an advert I would be *really* pissed off. Just me, maybe, but I think there are some areas that advertising doesn´t belong. Not for me, this one.

Where's it say that they are in the building?

You mean, the people behind the couple doing the acting? The people around them in the same room? Clapping when they hear the announcement? Nodding with appreciation and relief that what they saw in front of them was an advert? Nowhere. It doesn't mention that they're in the same building.

I shouldn't assume such things.

I understood your first comment to mean that you were suggesting the people are already in the building where the play is being held. So then I asked where did it say that they are in that building.

If that's not what you meant, then you should learn to write your angry little comments a little more clearly.

Point taken; I jumped to a large conclusion that it was in the same building. May not have even been on the same street or city. Thanks for making me watch it again, and apologies for my brash response.

For the record, I agree with everything else you said.

Interesting concept. Don't know how well it would work for every play, but at least they are trying to mix things up.

Now that was bold and fresh!!! I love it, BUTTTT that is only hitting too small of an audience at once right????

I liked this. And the audience isn't necessarily small...word-of-mouth, remember?

Honestly though, many people say they'd do something after seeing someone hit but in reality few ever do. The bystander effect. So being assured that this was not real, people won't regret they did nothing. Besides, if you notice the hitting wasn't anything big....I wonder if the culture is a bit open to slight physicality.
