It’s the prank to end all pranks, not to mention the world. LG demonstrated their ultra HDTV by simulating a meteor strike on Chile during a job interview. The applicants saw the city destroyed through what they thought was a window. As the explosion closes in on them the lights go out and complete the illusion. The prank victims clearly didn’t enjoy the experience but Youtube sure does. The video has seen a meteoric rise, reaching over 2.5 million views in just 3 days.
The meteor prank isn’t first time LG has tricked people into believing they were about to die. Earlier this year, they used their IPS displays in an elevator prank that made it appear as though the floor was giving way.
