LG decides to show how good its IPS LCD screens are, scares people to death in an elevator

We know there is rarely anything better than a good IPS (in-plane switching) display in the LCD universe, or so says LG. Well, Samsung begs to differ with its PLS (plane-to-line switching) tech, but since the iPhone is using IPS LCDs, it is the most popular mobile screen technology for the flagship phones of Apple and LG itself, and that's not a small number...

Cool, creepy concept. The ladies had the most genuine reaction it seems. Some of the guys seemed staged or is this a commercial?

I watched this the other day. Would have been a lot better if they had made the panels change a lot slower. People would have really got freaked.

you have been fooled guys, look at the GREEN CHROMA/CHROMA KEY at 1:26. :)

Had to be actors or severely edited. Those people reacted way to calmly. You can't do that to people without risking being sued for possible heart attacks.

compare 0:50 & 1:03
...and you would see two different projections on the screen-floor. that's not possible, the projections are only different because it suits the angle of the camera.
therefore, this is not "real"...

showing how easily people kill themselves since 1975. lol.
no one tried to brace themselves, step on the grid or anything.. hell, one lady jumped into the falling pieces..
lol. funny prank, but it would have been better if the tiles fell a lil more slowly.

They should have had the tiles fall away a little at a time to force people to scramble to ones still there, then have them collapse.
