为电影续集做宣传时,经常采用模仿之前电影情节整蛊路人的方式,路人往往被吓得不轻,观看整蛊视频的吃瓜群众却会觉得很有趣。近日,在美国纽约的一家电器城里,“贞子”(Samara)从商场展示的电视机中爬出来,并试图摸到顾客,所有看到这一幕的人都被吓得不轻。幸运的是,这并不是真的恐怖片中的情节变成现实,只是美版《午夜凶铃》在为新电影做宣传。

Over 14 years after the original (American) film, Samara is still climbing out of TVs. In anticipation of the Feb. 3 premiere of Rings — the third edition in the U.S. Ring franchise — the team behind the upcoming film has set up a prank in order to get people scared about TVs once again. “First you watch it, then you die” goes the film’s motto, and some unsuspecting shoppers recently thought they were living that prophecy while browsing for TVs at an electronics store in upstate New York.

 

视频中,商场陈列着最新款电视机,销售员向顾客展示电视的逼真画面,之后销售员离开,留下顾客自己观看。恐怖的是,“贞子”从电视中爬了出来,跟电影情节一模一样。大部分顾客看到“贞子”时被吓得失声尖叫,一名男子在“贞子”差点抓到他时落荒而逃。

The TVs were set up so that they all were simultaneously playing the new Rings trailer, but one of the mounted screens was able to be withdrawn, allowing for the escape of a woman expertly made-up to look like Samara, the filthy-looking resurrected demon girl who’s been the source of so many scares throughout all of the Ring movies.

Samara makes her sneak attacks while the salesman has fully immersed the shoppers with a lesson on the real-life quality of 4K resolution. The reactions are priceless.

 

该视频由《午夜凶铃》官方推特发布,已经获得2.5万次转发和2.4万个赞。新一辑的《午夜凶铃3》将会会今年2月3日登陆大荧幕,距离系列上一部电影已经过去了整整12年,迫不及待要一窥究竟,就先看看预告片吧!

“Rings,” which will be the third film in “The Ring” franchise, hits theaters Feb. 3. It’ll be the first movie since “The Ring Two” in 2005.
