How Honest Is Los Angeles? Hidden Live-Cam Spies On The Honest Tea Test In Weho
Los Angeles finished "dead last" in the honesty department during last year's Honest Tea Honesty Test. The test is back, and our (hopeful) redemption will be televised as this year's entrapment streams live online, according NBC LA.
As part of a hidden-camera experiment, Honest Tea has set up unmanned booths across the county. The premise is simple -- pay a dollar, take a tea. It appears as if nobody is watching, leaving Angelenos with an ethical dilemma.
Unmanned, the booth stands at 802 North San Vicente Blvd. in West Hollywood. Other cities who are hopefully as shady as we are include Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, Miami, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York.
Who will pay, and who will pay with atonement? Find out here. Stay tuned for the results show.
