“House of Nightmares” theme park ad shocks passers-by
By Rich Leigh on Wednesday, November 19, 2014
I’ve just been sent this outdoor ad prank to promote a ‘House of Nightmares’ attraction opening in 2015 at Gröna Lund, a theme park in Stockholm, Sweden:
A poster was set up, with the words ‘Do you dare look at our new attraction?’. A QR code gave passers-by the chance to preview the attraction. Whilst (a suspiciously large number of) people scanned the code, a man forced himself against the poster’s material, accompanied by some sort of weird screech in what was intended to be a scary stunt.
The video’s had just shy of 1m views. Find out more about the new ride on the theme park’s site.
