Carrie Telekinetic Coffee Shop Prank Goes Viral

To promote the remake of Carrie, Sony Pictures has released an amazing Telekinetic coffee shop surprise video. And is goes extremely viral in one day.


What if telekinesis was real? How would you react?

A hidden camera experiment captures the reactions of unsuspecting customers at a New York City coffee shop as they witness a telekinetic event.

The script is simple: after a man spills coffee on her laptop, the girl uses her power to send the man flying up a wall.

She then uses her power to make tables move and books fall.

All the while, a hidden camera captures the surprised reaction of real customers in the store.


Carrie Video Hits 3,5 Million Viral Views in One Day

The video has been so successful that it has racked up over 13,5 million views on YouTube in less than one day.

So it might just be the perfect promotion for the remake of the Stephen King’s well-known 1976 horror film.

My Opinion?
Although a prank is perhaps not the right concept for a horror movie, it immediately has my attention.

So in that case: well done!

ON YouTube some viewers are doubting whether this a rehearsed prank, or not.

In that case: great performance as well!

What About You?
What do you think? Is this a real hidden prank gag with real customers? Or is it fake?
