How would you feel if a stranger came up to you and attempted to hold your hand? Pretty freaked out, right? Well, that didn't stop college comedy prank group LAHWF from attempting the feat -- and making a video compilation of the best responses.

The video was made on the pranksters' college campus and reactions range from terribly creeped out to mildly amused, but they all have a commonality of being pretty hilarious. Watch the video, then make the call: What would you do if a stranger tried to hold your hand? Would you hesitantly embrace it or attempt a slap in the face?

    I would give two quick squeezes, and say "It's set to go off in 5 minutes. Make sure you're out in time," turn a corner and escape.

    Nope... holding hands is a personal thing... I'm not doing it unless invited and I want to.
  • joe 2012/06/15 14:15:26

    I take that a step further and expect a 3 foot diameter circle of my OWN personal space in public.

    Geez, don't breathe on me either.

    Thanks, i HATE to be crowded, or have anyone stand too close to me. At Disney World I figured out how to stand in such a way that I get my 3 feet in any line they have. HATE, loathe, despise, and get nauseated and panicky when I feel crowded.

    I don't do well with touching people in general before I've gotten to know them. A handshake is about as far as it goes.

    Someone I don't know trying to hold my hand? Yeah, that wouldn't go well.

    Well he's wearing an expressionless face ;)
    If the person was female and had a smile or cheeky face, I could probably ease to itLol!

    But in fact, I embrace and hug chicks I have never previously met quite regularlyLol!
    I reckon I have it quite down to an art ;)
    If a girl wanted an embrace, I would take her firmly and just hold her for some moments
    I embraced some chick welcome into the house tonight that I rarely see: she was just Gorgeous to Hug! ;)

    Extremely creepy old dude = No
    20's or younger of either gender = why not?
    Now that's if they just randomly walk up. If they ask me first, it all depends on the reason.

    Okay, you're gross.
  • smitty I~Fell~... 2012/06/18 14:28:20
    You are the one who said you would hold hands with a stranger. Not me.
  • I~Fell~... smitty 2012/06/18 20:21:33
    You could have simply stated where their hands could have been. The pictures were uncalled for.
  • smitty I~Fell~... 2012/06/18 20:46:40
    The pictures proved a point quite well.
  • I~Fell~... smitty 2012/06/18 23:07:22
    Alright, whatever. I'm done talking to you. I'd appreciated it greatly if you did not reply to me anymore.
  • smitty I~Fell~... 2012/06/19 13:33:47
    As i would appreciate if you would stop as well.

    What makes "a creepy old dude"??
    ...just that he'solder ... so does that make him"creepy"??
  • I~Fell~... Doc Fra... 2012/06/16 15:59:08
    Ya know. The ones that offer candy from their white van, lol. But if I'm walking a seinor citizen across the street or something, I'd hold their hand.

  • Marianne 2012/06/15 12:56:11
    Why not, if it is the friendly way? It happened several times while I was helping to organise a congress, and some participants needed to be guided at the last minute to the room of their presentation or to the diner.
  • AvaC 2012/06/15 10:26:24
    no thank you kitty

    Attempt a slap in the face? I'll make sure he gets it!

  • retrograve Claire ... 2012/06/15 18:40:15
    What he's got candy? Wow....decisions decisions...

    The candy is tempting :)
  • Wanderer 2012/06/15 09:12:37
    It would be surprising at first but then I would go with it.
  • kay29 2012/06/15 08:27:18
    Perhaps briefly, then let it go...unless it was a cute guy...
  • mr echo 2012/06/15 08:03:16

  • Vennie 2012/06/15 07:09:07
    For a few seconds as I checked to see what he or she wanted, especially in an open crowded space such as where he was walking where I could scream bloody murder if I had to.
  • AngelaDuke 2012/06/15 07:04:51
    LOL! That's great. If it was a prank yes, otherwise no. I'm a married woman so my husband would have to be in on the joke.
