Watch This First: LG's Apocalyptic HDTV "Prank"

by Jason Toon

Maybe I'm just uptight. Maybe I'm hypocritical, because I enjoy some pretty intense pranks (including this coffeeshop horror made to promote the Carrie remake). But I think tricking people into thinking their city has been destroyed by a meteor goes way too far. I guess LG makes their point about how realistic this "Ultra HD" TV is, but, uh, you know, making people believe their families and friends have been killed doesn't seem all that fun.




Watch Watch This First first, weekday mornings at 7 Central. Because the best way to start the day is to start it a few minutes later.
