How far would people go ?

On Wednesday night, a new "game" was on air on a French TV channel. Click on the TV set to watch the video extract, on the BBC :

"Christophe Nick, the producer, said he was amazed that so many contestants [in the Game] followed the sadistic orders. He said that only 16 out of the 80 contestants refused to administer the electric shocks."

This "game" was based upon Milgram's experiment.
Here is a short animation caricaturing it :

And now... would YOU be ready to do ANYTHING to be on TV ?  Would YOU blindly follow ANY order ??

contestant = someone who participates to a game/a race/a contest
sadistic (sadique)  /  upon = on  /  blind = that cannot see   -  blindly = adverb
