If you saw Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres hanging out at a mall, what would you do? Would you take a picture? Would you let them shoplift? Would you get on your hands and knees to collect coins out of a fountain for them, knowing full well that they were not going to donate the proceeds to charity? In this clip from Wednesday’s Ellen, the duo see just how far regular people will bow before the imagined authority of the rich and famous, and the answer is, of course, pretty far. Stanley Milgram would be proud.
