Social Experiment Goes Very, Very Wrong For A Couple Of Men

Sexual harassment is a big problem in some areas where women are still treated more like sex objects than people. In Lima, Brazil, some 7 out of every 10 women claim that they are sexually harassed by men on a daily basis. Men who catcall and say rude things on the street are frustrating, embarrassing and frightening for women who are just trying to go about their day. One social experiment film taught a couple of guys a lesson.

In Peru, a film crew planned a surprise for some guys in a show called 'Silbale a tu madre', which translates loosely to 'harassing your mother'.

The show got in touch with the mothers of a couple of men who were notorious for shouting rude comments to women passing on the streets. The mothers agreed to participate in the experiment. They were whisked away to a salon for a quick makeover to get into disguise.

The mothers were then sent to walk out past their own sons. The first mother is walking by when her son and his friend are hanging out by a building.

"Tasty panties!" he called out to her as she went by, stopping her in his tracks.

The man, named Renzo, turned away and wasn't paying attention. His mother spun on her heels and approached him. When she called his name, he gaped at her, dumbfounded.

"Mama?" he asked.

His mother lit into him and hit him with her purse. She was furious and screamed how shocked she was to hear that he was harassing women on the street, and how sad she was to see it is true.

The young man tried to explain that he thought she was a girl he knew, and that's how college students joked with each other these days, but the mother wasn't buying it.

The next man, named Julio, was on a break at work. He was outside by the curb when his mother walked past him. The blonde woman was wearing a dark wig to disguise herself.

"Hello, piggy!" he said to her as she passed by.

This man was also shocked when his mother turned around and confronted him. She flung off her wig and screamed at him in the street.

At first, Julio tried to blame it on a guy in a car behind him. When that didn't work, he begged his mother for mercy. He said his boss was standing nearby and was going to fire him.

The furious mother just ranted and raved before storming off.

The social experiment went viral and many applauded it for addressing the issue. Later the show's creators admitted that it was completely staged, and that all the individuals involved were actors. It still resonates with many women, however, who hope that polite society will come to realize that leering at and catcalling strange women is unacceptable. After all, every woman is someone’s daughter, someone’s girlfriend, or someone’s mother.
