Social Experiment: Military Escorts for VIP Subway Riders | Fake Focus Group

Public transit is a mess. Overcrowding, frequent delays, and crime are just some of the problems commuters face when riding the “chariot of the people.”

In this episode of Fake Focus Group, our phony proctor Sameer presents a bogus privatized version of the subway to a group of real New Yorkers to see if they would go along with it.

But are they willing to sacrifice their functioning, yet insufficient system for corporate interests? Let’s see if the prank lands.
