Dark side of reality.
A SPOOF French TV gameshow supposedly proves that, if offered the opportunity, the majority of us would torture someone to death in front of the cameras if there were a few Euros and five minutes of fame in it.
The audience was apparently totally unaware the programme was a hoax and roared the contestants on to "punish, punish, punish" the victim, while he screamed in pretty authentic terror.
Some, however, have suggested they knew all along it was a set-up.
But having watched the baying which orchestrates the X Factor auditions, not least towards vulnerable contestants, I wouldn't be too sure.
Vee ver only acting under TV reality orders.
