WATCH: Using HD screen, LG plays end-of-the-world prank on job interviewees

In an amazing and hilarious demonstration of how life-like their Ultra Reality HD screen is, LG invited some unwitting job seekers to an office for a fake job interview — and proceeded to freak each one of them out with an incredibly realistic apocalyptic prank.

In an amazing demonstration of how life-like their Ultra Reality HD screen is, LG invited some unwitting job seekers to an office for a fake job interview — and proceeded to freak each one of them out with an incredibly realistic apocalyptic prank.

The LG crew equipped an office with a screen that gives the impression of a window looking out over the city.  And as the interviewees were brought in one-by-one, the end of the world played out just over the interviewer’s shoulder.

The reactions are priceless.

    I’m not sure which of the victims I’d hire after all that. Or if they’d accept the offer.

    They better have a second 84 inch TV ready because I’d be putting someone’s face through that one.

    Awful trick. Would not purchase LG, inciting terror is not a form of advertising.

    Whoever at Dead State thinks this is “hilarious” (i.e., the headline) ought to be waterboarded.

    They can take their job and shove it – this isn’t funny – it’s mean and abusive and if this is how they treat applicants imagine how they treat employees.

    actors all of them. You can tell because not one of them actually goes into paralyzing shock for seconds as you would expect.
    Also the TVs are not that good, and not as bright as reality, so there is no way that they would get confused and think they were windows. So a european Ad Agency at work, not an evil employer.
