So, there’s this video that claims to be a prank aimed at showing female gold diggers at work. What the crew behind it does is wait at the top of some steps for an attractive young girl to walk up, and then out of the blue ask her out to dinner. Her reaction is gauged before and after the male protagonist, and the main prank stager, shows her he’s driving a convertible Lamborghini Gallardo.
To be frank, I’m personally sick and tired of the propagation of the “women are gold diggers” stereotype and I’d like to say that gender has nothing to do with digging for gold, and that this hurtful view does nothing to constructively improve the situation.
I’m not saying there aren’t women who adopt this tactic to skip the stages of their ascent through the social ranks and amass wealth without working, but men do it just as much and just as tactfully, but they have to adopt a different tactic given the specific social climate associated with each sex – it’s not a trait of women, it’s a trait of people, and the aforementioned social constraints just mean their way of doing it is the more visible of the two…
Back to the video, what do you think; is it fake, staged or just full of crap? The comments section is yours.
