My friend, Ivonne, sent me a link to a candid camera style video. The setup was in a supermarket where a guy gave customers samples of cooked sausage and then tried to get them to buy fresh sausage that he was cranking out of a machine on the spot.
Whenever a customer wanted to buy fresh sausage, however; the machine was empty. But this was not a problem because the sausage man had live piglets on hand. So for each customer, he put a piglet into the machine and ground sausage from it.
Despite the fact that no one had a problem tasting the cooked sausage, customers were horrified when the piglet was ground before their eyes. One woman even hit the sausage man with her purse.
It’s a gag, of course, and the piglet is not actually harmed. But isn’t it interesting?
Here’s a link to the video. This is actually a shorter version of the video Ivonne sent me, which I can’t locate.
