It’s a video that could have you asking, ‘How would you react?’

A man named Yousef Saleh Erakat conducted a ‘kidnapping experiment’ and posted the video on YouTube.

In the video, a child named Nathan, goes up to people and tells them a man is trying to take him.

**Watch the video above to see how adults react**

Erakat, who plays the kidnapping suspect, said on YouTube, “Growing up, my biggest fear was getting kidnapped. I would get home early from school and sit on my front lawn until my parents came home because I felt like someone was inside my house waiting for me. This video was a way for me to express that fear in an artistic way and also spread positive change as to why it is important to ACT when put into these types of situations. Kids being abducted are nervous being around the person who captured them so it’s on us to know when he or she is in danger. This video will not bring back any of the disappeared angels but it may help prevent losing anymore to the devil.”

    I would unholster my Model-1911 .45acp and put two bullets center mass into the kidnapper’s chest. Prank? No problem. Covered under my State’s law for Justification of Deadly Physical Force. Kidnapping of a child/In Progress/Use of fear, Force, Intimidation. GREEN LIGHT – Pull the trigger.
