Deep wisdom from a humble barbershop will make you laugh, think and cry

There’s this hidden-camera show that doesn’t pull pranks on people for laughs, but poses tough situations and sees what real people watching the train wreck would say or do.

Unlike “reality” television, the only fake part of this are the actors instigating it.

The reactions from actual people are truly real, completely raw and sometimes amazing.

Watch this short clip.

Listen to the uncoached compassion and unscripted wisdom from random people sitting in that barbershop.

If the last woman to speak up from her barber chair doesn’t make you laugh, think and cry, then you have no soul.

    I saw this the other day, this is wonderful! I am so happy that people took a stand and defended her. We need more people like this in our world.
