The secrets behind the best telekinetic freak out of all time are just as fascinating to watch as the actual prank.
Thinkmodo founders James Percelay and Michael Krivicka know how to pull a fast one on a crowd. These two creative geniuses were hired by the studio behind the "Carrie" remake to create a viral video. And, boy, did they succeed!
So just how did they do it? Krivicka tells Showbiz Tonight the set up was elaborate and the biggest challenge was making sure the timing was perfect. What about all those innocent coffee shop bystanders who were scared senselessly? How could these guys be certain none of them would take this seemingly out-of-control situation and have a freak out of their own?
Percelay explained, “Nobody freaked out to the point of us yelling 'Cut!' Afterwards we all applauded and showed them that they were in a safe environmen, and they loved the fact that they were in on something this cool.”
