Would You Steal A Homeless Person’s Red Octobers?

blame it on Meka July 7, 2014

How low must you be to try to steal a pair of highly-coveted shoes from a homeless person? In this latest social experiment from YouTuber Yousef Saleh Erakat, the approach is simple: pose as a bum and sleep next to a pair of fake Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red Octobers,” then wait to see if passersby can resist the temptation to take them from him. While some – naturally – would just keep it pushing (I could never jack a vagrant), others prove that they’re not above robbing a homeless person. Check it out.

  • Yeezus

    Rephrase: If you saw $5,000 on the ground next to a homeless sleeping man would you steal it?

    • NoWuff

      Rerepharse: If you saw $5,000 laying on the ground next to a homeless man and you were 100% sure he was gonna spend it on some dumb shit would you steal it?

  • Cam TexasBoy Perry

    why would a homeless person have yeezy 2’s and not sell them. he wouldn’t be homeless no more.

  • Arun Gopal

    The dude with the jawstring was tryna be so slick…lol

  • FireMadeFlesh

    Okay, the guy with the glasses is apparently in on the joke (since he appears near the end of the video laughing with Yousef), but the chick that wants to stop him from stealing seems almost a little too invested to be rolling up on a complete stranger. Bad acting?

    • Willmatic

      yeah… yeah that was the point. The guy pretended to take the shoes to see if anyone would stop him.

      • FireMadeFlesh

        ..But my point is she seems like she’s in on the joke too. #staged.

        • Willmatic

          Naw lol she not

    • AmIDickRidingyet

  • Your Best Friend

  • Ohms

    yes, yes I would. I’d sell them, come back and buy him a cup of coffee.

  • soulprint

    would not even look at them, BECAUSE I DON”T KNOW WHAT ARE THOSE SHOES, now I do, but lol
    this is really sad, like people are really ready to steal, just to get a pair of shoes, so many dope shoes out tthere and this is hypebeasting at its best

  • I like to think that I’d wake dude up and tell him to put that shit away so they don’t get jacked.

    • disqus_pyrGXaSTDx

      This is the only right answer

  • fonzo517
