Found: LG pulls post-apocalyptic prank on unsuspecting interviewees using 84-inch UHDTV

By on

You may think investing in a 4KTV right now is not very wise, however it does make a pretty good tool for tricking people, just ask LG. After an elevator prank went viral garnering over 19 million views on YouTube last year, LG Chile decided to get in on the action.

Unsuspecting intervieewes go into a room for a job interview, the room's only window shows what appears to be regular city scenery (the ultra HDTV) when a meteor starts descending into earth and job candidates to freak out. Obviously the room was rigged so they could capture the people's reactions and we could laugh at their expense.

Whether the whole thing was orchestrated or reactions were real but one thing's for sure: the stunt worked. In less than three days, the video has received over two million views.
