A “social experiment” video posted by the New York Rescue Mission asks the question, “Have the homeless become invisible?”

“Have the homeless become so invisible we wouldn’t’ notice our own family members living on the street?” a message at the beginning of the video reads.

People agreed to pose as homeless and hidden cameras captured the moments their relatives walked by them on the street.

The producers then sat down with the people asked them about their family members. Then, they showed them video of them walking past their family members on the street.
