Our social experiment • As a social experiment for our presentation we wanted to come up with a parody of the reality television shows that have become a part of pop culture today in the media. We chose “I love New York” on VH-1 that stars Tiffany Pollard better known as New York who has a competition of 20 men who compete for her love, We also chose the “To Catch a Predator” Dateline specials on NBC that show child/teen predators who are caught in the act by the reporter , and the Geico insurance Commercials. We hope you enjoy our commercial skit!
