If you cut through the spin, how honest is DC, really? Apparently about 93%.
At least that’s what the folks at Honest Tea discovered when they put ice-cold bottles of organic tea, guarded only by a sign asking folks to pay $1, on a DC street on a hot summer day.
A hidden camera recorded the results, above.
Among the honest? A homeless man who proudly paid one dollar in change while expressing appreciation for the experiment and its belief in him.
So who was more honest than DC? Boston, at 93.3%. We beat out San Francisco, New York, Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles.
