I don’t know if this is one of the most terrifying pranks in history, one of the best prank hoaxes or just a brilliant piece of advertising in any case.

To demonstrate how lifelike the picture is of LG’s new 84” Ultra HDTV, they set one up as a window in an office where they were interviewing candidates for a job. During the course of the interview, a giant meteor would come crashing down on a picture perfect representation of the city below, and I think they made the room shake and the lights change as well.

The result? Screaming hysteria that the interviewee had just witnessed the destruction of an entire city.

I think it’s fake, lest they be open for lawsuits alleging psychological trauma, but damn was this ever a brilliant idea.
