LG have released Stage Fright – So Real It’s Scary 2, the amusing sequel to last year’s smash-hit viral video, So Real It’s Scary. Like the original, the second installment also poses the question – just how real are images on an LG IPS monitor? To help prove its exceptional IPS picture quality, LG enlisted the help of its cinematic IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor.
Directed by LG Electronics Benelux office, Stage Fright – So Real It’s Scary 2 tests the theory with hidden cameras that men cannot go to the bathroom when someone is watching them. In the video, LG installs its IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitors above a row of urinals in a restroom. As unsuspecting gentlemen attempt to relieve themselves, the monitors display faces of beautiful women. Proving how realistic images are on an LG IPS monitor, several men experience ‘performance issues’ as they genuinely believe they were being observed. The clip resonated with viewers in a pre-release survey that involved 600 participants. The video ranked in the top five percent of all viral ads shown to the group.
LG leads the next generation monitor market with superior IPS display technology and creative design concepts. As seen in Stage Fright – So Real It’s Scary 2, the LG IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor delivers stunningly real picture quality on a screen that is significantly wider than a conventional 16:9 model. The monitor is a versatile powerhouse, boasting powerful multitasking via its 4-Screen Split and Dual-Link Up features. LG’s IPS 21:9 Ultrawide expresses more than 99 percent of the sRGB color space, providing the most vivid, lifelike colors and incredible image clarity. The first monitor to offer users the cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio, LG’s unique monitor is ideal for immersive gaming and movie viewing experiences.
Earlier this year, the LG IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor was recognized with an iF design award; a testament to its eye-catching design and state-of-the-art display technology.
So Real It’s Scary 1:
A 2012 viral video sensation, So Real It’s Scary begins with a team of workers installing LG IPS monitors in the floor of an elevator. Once everything is in place, hidden cameras film the elevator’s occupants as the cleverly disguised monitors create the illusion of a fast-disintegrating floor. Convincing enough to shock and scare the unsuspecting passengers, the stunt effectively demonstrates the lifelike picture quality produced by LG’s IPS display technology. Within days of being posted on YouTube, the amusing clip was seen by millions worldwide, recording over 18 million views currently.
