This is from a German website, but you don't have to know the language to understand the set-up. TV manufacturer wants to advertise how life-like its picture quality is. It gets an office, builds a fake wall and places one of its huge-screen TVs where the window would be. Then it sends in job candidates in, one at a time, for a fake interview. During the interview, the placid outdoor scene on the TV suddenly takes an unexpected turn. Hilarity ensues
I'll admit: I chuckled at this, but then I was in on the joke. I wonder, though, how I'd feel if I was one of the butt-monkeys who thought they were going on a legitimate job interview, only to face the prospect of imminent death and destruction, followed by a bunch of people jumping through the door yelling "surprise!" Also, I can't help but wonder if the premise of the set-up -- fake job interviews with real job seekers -- wasn't designed to make it easier for the company to get releases from the prank victims, who, the company knows, need money because, after all, they're looking for work
I also wonder what the company's slogan would be for this ad campaign. "LG TVs: so real you'll think that you and all your loved ones are about to die."
