LG tricks job applicants with a fake meteor apocalyse to promote new HD TV

by | 5th, September 2013

THE MAKERS of the 84 inch Ultra HD TVLG came up with a wheeze to sell their product: show unsuspecting job applicants in Chile a meteor cashing into the planet:

When these unsuspecting individuals entered the office, they were nervous about a job interview, not about the end of the world. That is, until the end of the world happened right before their very eyes! The IPS screen, disguised as a window, was so high-def that people were — apparently — ready to run when they saw the meteor drop.

Whether or not the scene was staged, the tagline “Reality, or Ultra Reality?” gets the message across.

 

This might be scarier:
