The coolest darn publicity stunt...

Recommended Posts


Nobody says "darn" anymore, but that was the headline.

The following is the coolest damn publicity stunt I have seen in a long time. It was staged in Belgium (of all places) by TNT.

I got it off The Blaze. The reactions by the public are hilarious.

Are you sure the spectators are staged? Or are you presuming?

I admit it's a good guess due to the high number of hoaxes and fully staged publicity stunts in the media, but I looked all over and the general tenor (albeit mostly presumption) is that the spectator reactions are real.

I did do some Google searching with a few different keyword phrases, but I don't have time to do any really deep research.

1. To do this in one take (as they'd have to if the spectators weren't actors), the crew would have to set up numerous cameras, and the spectators would notice them.

2. A single siren blast wouldn't fill an empty square in a few seconds.

3. Real people would duck for cover when they heard gunshots, not cover their ears.

4. The messages on the arrow and the banner are in English. Belgium isn't an English-speaking country. (Do they even know what TNT is?)
