Carrie Remake Viral Prank Terrifies Coffee Shop Customers


Although everyone seems to be sick of hearing the phrase “viral marketing” as of late, the truth is that the phenomenon is not going away anytime soon. In this day and age, YouTube videos that go viral end up getting way more eyeballs than a regular TV commercial or movie trailer ever could. In order to help promote their upcoming Carrie remake, Sony Screen Gems came up with the idea to stage a fake telekinetic freak out in a coffee shop in order to capture reactions from unsuspecting customers. If you ask me, the whole thing looks pretty unconvincing, but somehow they managed to terrify at least a few naive souls. Either way, it’s probably worth two and a half minutes of your time. Carrie hits theatres on Oct. 18th; check out the video after the jump and see what you think.

    Frank…if this had occurred at a Tim Horton’s, and you were there, would it have made you jump or would you have criticized the bad effects?

  • patrik

    That was pretty good. Frank would have predicted where this was all going I bet ;)

  • MisterQuigley

    I wish Franky would have been there for this, just to see him drop his muffin and the wet spot form on his acid-washed jeans…

  • John Anthony
