What happens when you put a boy in front of a girl and ask him to slap her?

Will boys obey an interviewer who asks them to slap a girl? 

Check out this viral video that starts with an off-screen interviewer asking boys, 7 to 11-years old, general questions. 

They are then introduced to a young girl named Martina who is similar in age and asked what they like about her. The embarrasment is adorable! One boy surprises himself when he says "I'd like to be your boyfriend".

But when the interviewer instructs them to "slap her" - they all refuse. 

One answers, "I don't want to hurt her".

Another says, "As the saying goes: 'girls shouldn't be hit, not even with a flower'."

The clip "Dalle uno schiaffo" (translates to "From A Slap") was posted on Facebook with the tagline "What happens when you put a boy in front of a girl and ask him to slap her?".

This video quickly went viral and has over 3.5 million views.
