‘Often, those who live on the street are people with really big hearts.’
It was a selfless act: a homeless man spots an apparently homeless teenager asking for money and stops to give him the coat off his back.
Little did he know that he was being filmed the whole time.
Putulik Kufak, originally from Cape Dorset in Nunavut, has been living on the streets of Montreal for 17 years.
So when he saw a teenager out in the cold, asking for money, he thought nothing of helping him out.
“It’s very cold,” Kufak tells the teen, before taking off his jean jacket and handing it to the boy.
As it turns out, the teenager was not homeless and was taking part in a social experiment being filmed by his brother, Angel Azmeer.
“We wanted to see what people would do if a 14-year-old took to the street asking for money,” Azmeer said.
“Some gave a bit of money, but most people just ignored him. We were shocked that the one person to really help was homeless himself.”
