North Face Prank

So there have been quite a few funny marketing pranks in the last couple years. Most of them have been to promote scary movies, like this one to promote the Carrie remake, and this one to promote a Chucky movie.

But now the North Face has got in on the fun. Check out this prank that played on Korean customers:

Essentially the customers come in. The floor begins to roll away so that they're forced onto the climbing wall. A large, presumably inflatable, pad appears deep down below them. Then a product comes out of the ceiling which they can jump for.

I can't imagine that a North Face shop in the US could get away with something like this without getting sued. But it sure would be awesome!
