When People See a Situation that Cries Out for Action,
Do They Step in, Back Away or Just Walk on by?
When you think no one is watching� what would you do? The popular ABC News series "What Would You Do?" has all-new, Jersey Shore-themed scenarios FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (9:01-10:00 p.m., ET). Using hidden cameras, "What Would You Do?" establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions.

Friday, September 21 Scenarios Include:

Too Tan: A boyfriend walks out of a tanning booth radioactive orange, yet his girlfriend wants him to go back for more. Will anyone stop him and tell him he looks ridiculous?
Left Children: What would you do if you observed a mother get fed up with her bratty kids and abandon them on a beachside boardwalk? What will bystanders do?
Bad Artist: What will happen when an artist sketches a bad portrait of a paying customer?
Sexual Harassment: A bartender is serving drinks to her patrons, but her boss is constantly sexually harassing her. At first he makes passing comments within ear shot of customers, but then he gets physical. Will anyone step in? Will the reaction be different if it's a man being sexually harassed?
Boozing Pregnant Mom-to-be: A young pregnant woman is drinking at a Jersey Shore bar. Does anyone try to stop her?
