LG Gets Too Real With Its New Displays

LG’s So Real It’s Scary series of prank ads can be a little cruel. The first one played on fears of falling, elevators and sudden and painful death.

The second, which has been released to nearly as much success, preys on an entirely different sort of fear. The fear of judgement. Of being shamed. Of having someone watch you while you’re using the toilet.

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume they’ve faked this prank, because the idea of a television manufacturer setting up hidden cameras in the mens’ room and then actually timing fellows’ stage fright is too unsettling to contemplate.

Nonetheless, it’s cheeky and effective—I’m quite convinced that LG’s ultra-wide IPS displays are uncomfortably faithful.
