LG Ultra HD Prank

LG Ultra HD Prank

After the “selfie” picture of the pope went viral, it is now the turn of the latest LG prank/ad. To promote the impressive HD quality of its Ultra HD TV, LG “pranked” job applicants in Chile attending interviews by replacing a window with the TV. The actual cityscape view was streamed on TV except that they added a meteor fall which scared the hell out of the “victims”. Check it out:

Now, I believe all those job applicants are actors and this is all staged but, I may be wrong. What makes me think so? First, the reactions don’t seem very authentic and very consistent with the staged catastrophe. Second, there is no explanation about how they made the room shake as we can see in the video. Third, it seems a bit weird that the interviewer got out of the room alone and closed the door. Fourth, will they take the risk of making people face this situation that may result in serious health shocks. I repeat I may be wrong about that.

What do you think? Is it real or fake?

  3. I think it is FAKE, I agree with the 4 points stated, and the 5th I add is that anyone would notice it is a SCREEN because of the point of view when you move. When getting into the room the image is still, if it would be a window, the perspective is different depending on the point you are looking from. Maybe they didn´t realize this when getting in, and they didnñt notice it at the end because they were so scared? I don´t think so. Really bad actors by the way…

  4. Its definitely fake. I am Chilean and watch Chilean television regularly. I have seen a couple of the actors in telenovelas.

  5. It’s obviously a fake: nobody will get fooled with a 2D display while the world is in 3D, and the angle of perspective in every landscape changes when the observer moves from one side to another, while a pre-recorded landscape doesn’t.

  8. Fake, just like the Jeff Gordon test drive. Funny concept, though.
