This 'Carrie'-Related Prank Delivers Some of the Year's Most Entertaining Movie Marketing

Oct 08, 2013

Next week marks the debut of Kimberly Peirce's Carrie, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as the sheltered high schooler with telekinetic powers. We've seen what happens to Carrie in Stephen King's 1974 novel of the same name and Brian De Palma's 1976 adaptation when the torture and taunting from the bullies at school and her unhinged, religious mother becomes too much — but what if telekinesis were real?

There's a new viral marketing stunt from team Carrie that answers this question with hilarious results. A hidden camera and various rigs were set up to fool unsuspecting customers at a New York City coffee shop. Their reactions are priceless. An unassuming woman sits at her computer typing away, while a nearby man accidentally spills coffee on her keyboard. She flips out and uses "telekinetic" forces to lift him up the wall, throw objects, and move tables and chairs. The stunned faces of onlookers will make you grin with fiendish delight in this Carrie-inspired clip. Enjoy!
