Watch: ‘Carrie’ Pulled a Freaky Telekenetic Prank on a Coffee Shop

By  · Published on October 8th, 2013

The marketing team behind Carrie went all Improv Everywhere at a New York City coffee shop recently with a fake wall, a pulley system and a very irritated young woman with remote control-assisted special powers.

To be fair, the whole thing looks a bit fake, and the set up belies that possibility (what with one customer target amidst a sea of actors (and that construction worker!)) but if it’s genuine, there are some reactionary gems. My favorite is the guy who drops his plate before he nopes the fuck out, although the woman who keeps trying to capture it with her cell phone is a close second.

At any rate, it’s a fun video, and it’s nice to see they went with this instead of simply throwing tampons at everyone before screaming the release date.

And, you’re welcome, Carrie marketing team. Tie-in tampons are a great idea.
