On August 10, 1948, a television producer named Allen Funt debuted a reality TV show called Candid Camera. In one episode, called “Face the Rear,” an unsuspecting person boarded an elevator and did what normal people do – he faced the front. That’s when three actors entered the elevator, and each faced the rear. Hidden cameras captured the angst of the person who was now staring those actors in the face. To turn or not to turn – that was the question.
When a fourth actor entered the elevator and faced the rear, the peer pressure became too much. Without exception, every person facing the front turned around and faced the rear.
And that’s a problem.
