“Elevator Murder Experiment” Viral Video Promotes “Dead Man Down”

What would you do if you walked into a murder in progress? Our second prank video of the past week asks that very question by staging a murder attempt in a New York City elevator. The video was made to promote this weekend’s theatrical release of Dead Man Down, a revenge thriller staring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace. Take a look at how people reacted after the break.


As alluded to above, we had another prank video last week, that time for The Last Exorcism Part II. These videos seem like a relatively cheap and effective way for smaller studios like FilmDistrict and CBS Films to grab people’s attention, as shown by The Last Exorcism’s video getting over 1 million views in less than a week. Both videos have been released on the Monday before their film’s opening weekend and within one week of each other, so the same marketing company is making them. This reminds me a bit of Thinkmodo’s past work, but I’m not sure if it’s them this time around.

Thanks to Robert Morvay for the heads up.
