MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A video of a “social experiment that was recently filmed in South Carolina is gaining national attention and even sparking an intense debate, according to WMBF.
The video shows a woman walking down the street in popular Myrtle Beach while wearing “stripper garb” and a reflective mask. How people respond to the woman is what is causing it to gain national attention. Some say it’s art, others say it’s nothing more than a stunt.
Viewers may be disturbed at what happens at around the 10:25 mark.
Alli Coates Signe Pierce posted the video to YouTube earlier this month.
The uploader wrote in the description:
American Reflexxx is a short film documenting a social experiment that took place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Director Alli Coates captured performance artist Signe Pierce as she strutted down a busy oceanside street in stripper garb and a reflective mask. The pair agreed not to communicate until the experiment was completed, but never anticipated the horror that would unfold in under an hour.
The result is a heart wrenching technicolor spectacle that raises questions about gender stereotypes, mob mentality, and violence in America.
