How BETC & Ubisoft Hacked The Streets of LA to Prank Passersby


Agency creates hidden camera campaign for Ubisoft's new game Watch_Dogs

How BETC & Ubisoft Hacked The Streets of LA to Prank Passersby

What if you had limitless control of the world around you through your smartphone? 

Ubisoft, in collaboration with their 360 communication agency BETC, has made this fantasy a reality with the launch campaign of its next game Watch_Dogs.  

In this video you'll see some amazing - and sometimes hilarious - reactions from people who unwittingly partook in this experiment, where a friendly salesman takes them from turning off lights to causing a terrible car crash.

So if a mobile phone salesman offered an application to hack electronic devices around you: ATM, cars, traffic lights ... what would you do?
