A prank set up by a comedian and a film crew in which shoppers were told that they would have to undergo a full body scan in order to enter a candy store shockingly illustrates how a majority of Americans will willingly submit to draconian invasions of their privacy with barely a thought for the consequences.
The prank, which took place in San Luis Obispo, California, utilized a real mobile body scanner as well as a model who acted as a plant by being scanned repeatedly. A man with a hand wand played the authority figure who assured shoppers that the body scan was necessary for their “security” and to detect weapons.
While the video shows numerous passers-by objecting to the idea of body scanning to enter a candy store, the makers of the short film made it clear that the majority of people stood in line and were perfectly happy to be scanned.
