Yes, I realized it was staged, a recorded audio, and no actual harm. That wasn't my question. It is the job of actors to "seem real". I was wondering if the text indicated, "Actors, not actual pedestrians" or something to that affect.
I do have to say if I was crossing the intersection against the light when I had checked and there was no traffic I wouldn't be happy if the audio startled me...
I live in Paris. There is no mention of it being actors. However, their Youtube page does state that real footage and pics will be used in a campaign to raise awareness of the issue.
