VIP Bus Stop Prank | Science Behind Our Craving for Status


Few things make us act irrationally more than
the need to feel important and that built in desire can be exposed with the cheapest
of props. This is the VIP bus stop experience. Yes. For an extra two dollars you can sit in the
VIP section. Do you guys want to pay two bucks each? Six dollars. Dude, what are you doing? People crave status almost as much as they
crave money. Two bucks, two bucks. Got it. The more we have status the more we have approval. Status is a way of achieving approval without
actually having to ask for it. Got it! I need you guys to come right through here
please. Enjoy your seat. Relax. There is obviously no difference in the experience,
but people will pay to think that they got something that other people can’t. Do you guys feel like VIPs? These guys are in the VIP section but they’re
squashed. I mean they’re literally like sandwiched
together, but they don’t even seem to care because they’re in the VIP section, and
what that tells me is they were going to get some self-esteem out of the fact of just being
in that section. I hope the bus comes. No. Yes, I am.
