These days it seems that everyone is trying to make a video go viral. Youtube.com and other video sites are saturated with millions of amateur actors, comedians and your general goofballs who are tossing pies at friends faces and scaring roommates while they sleep. It may seem like anyone can make a quick video on their phone and have it go viral but I assure you that’s simply not the case. For every viral video out there there are thousands that lack the wit, spontaneity, and unique take that makes a video go viral and get shared millions of times over. So it is in the spirit of the viral video fails that LG has put together this hilarious scary prank spoof to showcase the new LG IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor.
The film gives us a behind the scenes peak into the struggles of a multitasking director Don Arnold who is trying to put together a painstaking scary prank video with 20 hidden cameras and a full film crew. As the prank gets underway Arnold watches on his LG UltraWide monitor as every step of the prank goes wrong with actors missing their marks, props failing and other failures dooming the would be viral vid. This funny film is a hilarious reminder that having a professional team and perfect tools doesn’t necessarily mean overnight viral success. As LG states “We give you perfect tools, but the results are up to you!”
