Watch What Happens When People Are Called Beautiful
Channing Tatum. Beyonce. A glorious sunset. If we were playing the Pyramid, you'd be inclined to say, "Things that are beautiful."
[EDITOR's NOTE: One statement at the 1:40 mark is not suitable for all listeners.]
Aside from "I love you," there may not be anything more powerful to hear than "You're beautiful," which makes this video all the more poignant.
YouTuber Shea Glover decided to tell people they're beautiful and then capture their reactions. Most people erupt in smiles, but there are some others who go against the grain in ways that you'll probably find surprising, most notably the very angry girl at the 1:40 mark who threatens to cut Glover in the face. That's hardly a beautiful response.
It's a pretty fascinating clip to watch, not just because the reactions are enlightening, but also because they may just tell you a thing or two about how people view themselves.
