Do you think the meteor prank video for an LG UHDTV is real or do you think they used actors?

Do you think a 2D TV would really be convincing as in the video of this UHDTV?

These LG prankvertisements are probably fake. Just look at the LG ''smart thief caught on cam'' advertisement. Looks real, is obviously fake.

It's absolutely meant to be humorous and not taken seriously.

 

Any window you look out at will give you obvious changes in view just by the smallest motions of your head.  Let alone walking into the room and sitting down.

 

1. It's in no way possible to fool anyone in real life with a TV on the wall like that, and

2. It's in no way anything but an ad that's supposed to be funny.

Good points. Then there's the bad acting. Everyone responds with immediate high panic, in one case when the object is hardly in the frame. There's no shock, no stunned amazement, just level 10 panic.

I'll take the TV, though.

I think people are notoriously un-observant. I could see many believing it's really happening.

I would've jumped out of my chair, pointed at the "window" and said, "wow, what crappy visual effects!" and run screaming out of the room.

The LG logo at the end is definitely superimposed, because no LED-LCD would be that bright without a visible black level.

The choices given in the three poll answers are not mutually exclusive.

So what do you think it is? Do you think it's actors who believe it's a window showing a meteorite - if it was actors wouldn't they have used them because they could act (to pretend that they thought it was real) - so they wouldn't actually believe it? Do you believe people are really being interviewed thinking it's a meteorite and you also "don't know" or you believe and you also "don't know"? I could have taken the "they are actors" off the no bit, but I'm sure it's pretty obvious they are actors .

Assume it's "1. yes - you believe - that they think it's really a meteorite", "2. no - you don't believe they think it's a meteorite" or "3. you don't know". (I suppose you might think some of them believe & some don't ).

They could have done the stunt with non-actors, then staged a reenactment with actors. Or they could have done it with actors, but just told them to play along with a skit they'd be in, so their reactions could possibly have been sort of genuine. Non-actors would have to sign releases before the ad could show, wouldn't they?

So I think the reactions could be genuine, and the people could be actors, and, also, I don't know.

I'm quite sure it was on the web somewhere where they were saying at least one of the people was a known actor. Also, this is LG, the same people who released the "LCD TV lift/elevator floor breaking & falling video" which was also very fake - in that one it was obviously people stood on a greenscreen instead of a TV (where also the perspective would have been different to the people if it was real), where they were obviously acting (as there was nothing for them to see in that one except the greenscreen they were standing on).
