Man tests the 'bro code' by having complete strangers help him lie to his girlfriend

Man tests the 'bro code' by having complete strangers help him lie to his girlfriend - and almost all of the guys agree to help 

  • In the video, YouTuber Aria Inthavong approaches random men on the street and begs them to tell his 'girlfriend' they hung out the night before 
  • Many of the men are happy to oblige and have no problem spinning a convincing story within seconds
A man who was curious to test how far guys would go to follow the unwritten 'bro code' asked multiple strangers help him lie to his girlfriend - and almost all of them agreed without any hesitation.
In the video titled Bros Before Hoes, YouTuber Aria Inthavong approaches random men on the street and begs them to back up his story about how they hung out the night before. The unique social experiment was set up to see if the guys would lie to help another man they just met or stay honest and above the fray.
And according to the video, most men see the 'bro code' as a legitimate unwritten law. Almost all of the guys agree to be Aria's alibi after only knowing him for a few seconds - with one stranger taking the ruse one step farther by telling Aria's 'girlfriend' that he had stolen his phone so he couldn't text her.

'This is my girlfriend. She's p***ed. Play along. Play along. She's p***ed,' Aria says to one guy, who responds by asking: 'What?'
However, Aria's girlfriend, played by Christa Helms, is there before he can explain more.
'This is Greg,' he tells her. 'This is the guy I was with last night.'
And while the stranger looks clearly befuddled, he does what he was told.
'You were with him last night?' Christa presses, and the man says: 'Yeah.'
While Aria and the other men in question all give Christa vague answers about their whereabouts the night before, they seem to naturally take on their fictional friendships even though they are strangers. 
Go with the flow: In the video titled Bros Before Hoes, most men, including this guy who Aria dubs 'JaQuinn', act as his alibi when his girlfriend, played by Christa Helms, comes over 
Talk it out: While this guy helps Aria lie, he does suggest that they take some time to talk out their issues

Another man, who Aria dubs 'JaQuinn', acts like they had a wild night out when Christa admits that she thought her boyfriend had lied to her.
'You know I totally didn't believe him,' she says. 'I was like: "No, you just went out with some other girl. You went to a strip club."'
But the stranger validates Aria’s story by giving him a double high five and saying that they were 'partying out' the night before.
'Where didn't we go?' Aria asks of their wild night, while JaQuinn adds: 'We went all over the place.'
While some of the strangers just follow Aria's lead, one man actually comes up with an elaborate story.
When Christa asks how they decided to go out, Aria is clearly struggling with an answer until his new friend hops in and says that he found him on Facebook.

'I was like: "Dude what are you doing?" And he was like: "I am in Portland," and I was like: "Me too," the stranger explains, but his off-the-cuff explanation doesn't stop there.
Christa notes that she was texting Aria until two in the morning but he never answered, and he claims that his friend actually stole his phone.  
'No, you didn't take his phone,' Christa says to the stranger in disbelief,' but he goes along with the story and says: 'Yeah, I did! He was like: "I got to call my girlfriend," and I was like: "No! It's a guys' night."'
However, hardly any of the guys are able to name the place that they had supposedly been the night before, instead choosing to act like they are struggling to think of the name.
One guy says they were at the Conquistador, another names Whiskey Bar, and someone else vaguely suggests they were somewhere on 82nd street. 
Christa also inquires how the guys know Aria, and the men are quick to say that they had met him in school or on the train, while one guy just claims he has known him for a 'long time'.
Just say no: However, not all guys were willing to lie. This man states that Aria's plan is never going to work

Another man can't help but laugh when Aria tells his girlfriend that she never met his friend because he was in 'the clink', however, he never blows Aria's cover.
And while one guy is willing to lie for Aria, he does suggest that they should work on their relationship.
'Whatever's going on, talk it out, seriously,' he says earnestly. 
'But we were together last night,' Arias says, asking him to confirm his story once again - which the stranger does. 
However, things start to fall apart when Christa asks them what Aria's name is, forcing them to say the first things that come to their heads.
'Kevin,' one guy says firmly, while another goes with: 'Tom?' 
Although this video may seem depressing to girlfriends everywhere, there are two guys in the clip who refuse to lie or get involved.
'This is never going to work buddy,' one guy says, while another notes: 'No, I don't know you,' when Aria tried to hug him.
