“If I go over to your kid right now, will he or she talk to me or run away?”

A social experiment posted on YouTube is showing parents just how easy it is to abduct their young children.

Joey Salads is an entertainer who posts pranks on YouTube.

He received permission from parents in a park, to see if he could try to talk to their children.

With the help of a small dog, Salads approached the children in a busy park.  He asked whether they wanted to go with him to see his other puppies.  In the video, a small boy takes his hand and walks off.

All of the parents that Salads approached thought that their children wouldn’t interact with him.

They were shocked to see how easy it was for Salads to get their kids to not only talk to him, but to walk off with him as well.
