MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A video of a “social experiment that was recently filmed in South Carolina is gaining national attention and even sparking an intense debate, according to WMBF.

The video shows a woman walking down the street in popular Myrtle Beach while wearing “stripper garb” and a reflective mask.

Viewers may be disturbed at what happens at around the 10:25 mark.

Director Alli Coates uploaded the video of performance artist Signe Pierce to YouTube earlier this month.

The uploader wrote in the description:

American Reflexxx is a short film documenting a social experiment that took place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Director Alli Coates captured performance artist Signe Pierce as she strutted down a busy oceanside street in stripper garb and a reflective mask. The pair agreed not to communicate until the experiment was completed, but never anticipated the horror that would unfold in under an hour.

The result is a heart wrenching technicolor spectacle that raises questions about gender stereotypes, mob mentality, and violence in America.
