  • They're so cute!

  • [Host] Puppies!

  • [Man] Alright.

  • Ever go to your favorite coffee shop and when you

  • get to the front to pay, you discover the person

  • before you picked up the tab?

  • It's a nice warm feeling, right?

  • Even better than your morning coffee,

  • if that's even possible.

  • So what do you do?

  • Keep it going.

  • The best thing about generosity is, it spreads.

  • Research has shown that people who experience

  • the generosity of others are more likely to pay it forward.

  • Being generous puts people in a good mood

  • and tends to make them more generous, and generous

  • people are more attractive as we know and they will

  • surely go on to breed more generous

  • babies and continue the cycle.

  • I have it all summed up in this chart.

  • See?

  • Easy.

  • Really the trick to kicking off this whole cascade

  • is getting that one domino at the top to fall.

  • Don't believe me?

  • Good.

  • Then I get to do another experiment.

  • We brought in a group of volunteers and gave them

  • the chance to do something really fun.

  • Okay, today you guys are gonna play with...

  • - Oh!

  • - [Host] Puppies!

  • - Yes!

  • This is the day!

  • - Oh my God!

  • That is great.

  • We told participants they got to play in the pen

  • with the pups for five minutes.

  • Hello there!

  • Oh my goodness gracious!

  • Do you want a belly rub?

  • Yes you do.

  • Yes you do.

  • This is what I imagined heaven looks like.

  • Alright gents, so your five minutes in the pen is up.

  • Oh.

  • So there's a little bit more we have to do today.

  • I'm gonna give you guys a choice.

  • We're still gonna compensate you for your time, as agreed.

  • Okay.

  • But you have an opportunity to make an additional $50.

  • Great, I'm on it.

  • So, hand you that.

  • You can either take the $50, just put it in your pocket,

  • go home or you can pass on the $50 and if you pass

  • on the additional $50, the person after you will

  • also get five minutes to play with the puppies.

  • The person before you was given this same choice

  • and they chose to pass on the $50 which is why

  • you guys got to play with the puppies and now

  • it's your turn to make a decision.

  • Wait, so it's either we get $50 bucks or somebody

  • else gets to play with puppies for five minutes?

  • [Host] Right.

  • That's really tough.

  • I don't know what to do!

  • Oh, like...

  • I mean...

  • I'm gonna give it back.

  • How do you think?

  • Yeah.

  • If somebody just takes the fifty, which they can,

  • then the person who would've gone after them,

  • we just say, thank you very much for your time

  • and then we show them the door.

  • No!

  • Then yeah, I'm gonna give up my $50.

  • [Host] You're gonna pass on the $50?

  • Yep.

  • [Host] Alright.

  • I'll pass on the $50 too.

  • You're also giving up the $50.

  • It just doesn't feel right to me,

  • so I'm gonna give it back to you.

  • Yeah because they let us play with puppies.

  • Yeah, I can't.

  • This is too good, they gotta be here.

  • Everyone needs a puppy.

  • I'm not gonna deny anyone the opportunity

  • to play with puppies.

  • There's so much we don't agree on in the world, I think.

  • We can give people time to play with puppies.

  • Puppies are like the one thing...

  • Okay folks, we're on a roll but how

  • long can we keep it going?

  • Let 'em play with puppies?

  • Let 'em play with puppies.

  • Easy decision.

  • I have to let them have time with the puppies.

  • [Host] Okay.

  • Yep.

  • I'll let other people come play.

  • Alright, I'll let them play with the puppies.

  • I wanna let someone else play with the puppies.

  • Oh puppy time, definitely.

  • I'm gonna need that $50 back then.

  • You can take this back.

  • Just like that?

  • Yeah.

  • Oof!

  • At the end of the day, 24 out of 25 participants

  • kept that generosity wave rolling.

  • For some of them, it was easy and for others,

  • it was a bit harder.

  • I'm feeling, I'm feeling like indifferent 'cause

  • I'm like yo, I don't know them but I'd be pissed

  • if like someone was like okay, bye.

  • It's just money, like, how many times

  • do you get to play with puppies?

  • It's like make someone's week, you know?

  • Everybody deserves to have a little happiness

  • in their day, I mean, like, look at this face.

  • Would this not like brighten your day?

  • This just brought me joy and I wouldn't want

  • to take that away from someone else

  • because money is money.

  • Did hearing that somebody else decided to give

  • up their $50 and let you guys come in,

  • did that have an effect on your decision at all?

  • It definitely for me made me more

  • likely give the money back just 'cause I was like,

  • oh, other people chose to be that selfless

  • so I'm gonna follow suit.

  • It's kind of like a pay it forward,

  • kindness begets kindness.

  • The people before me made this decision to let me

  • play with them and I had a fun time with them,

  • I think it's worth it to pass that on.

  • You put good vibes into the world,

  • you get good vibes back, I think.

  • Because everyone wants to jump on board when they

  • see what's going on and then it can become something

  • much bigger than the original person thought.

  • It doesn't take much to put people in a giving mood.

  • Just a little generosity from the get go,

  • a little nudge of kindness and that generosity

  • snowball starts rolling, picking up speed and growing.

  • If you see kindness and generosity in the world,

  • don't be afraid to act on it and if you don't see it,

  • start it because others will see what you do

  • and pass it on.

They're so cute!
