Julius DeinJulius Dein, a 21-year-old London-based prankster recently uploaded a video he calls a social experiment, where he clapper-clapper-film-movie-smiley-emoticon-000232-largetests how people on the tube will react if they saw homophobic bullying occur in front of them.

In the experiment, Dein plays a homophobic character who harasses a gay couple, played by actors Adam Ward and Josh Green. Videographer Michael J. Needham captures the reactions as Dein makes comments like, “That’s disgusting, man,” “Are you actually for real?” and throws slurs at the gay couple.

The result is overwhelmingly hopeful, as different people tell off Dein and tell him to get off the subway and mind his own business. One man in particular threatens, “If you don’t get off the train, I’ll throw you off the train.” Another tells him, “That’s love, that’s love, that’s love. There’s love all over this place.”

Watch the video below:

bobbyAt the end, Dein points to the camera and reveals that it was an experiment all along. As those who intervened sigh with relief, we’re also relieved that there are people out there who will stand up for victims of bullying and discrimination.
