‘Devil Baby’ Surprises Pedestrians in New York City

An animatronic “Devil Baby” in a remote-controlled stroller surprises unsuspecting pedestrians in New York City in this elaborate staged prank. The stunt was created as a promotion for the upcoming found-footage horror movie Devil’s Due by Thinkmodo, the same viral marketing company behind the promotional stunt for Carrie that featured a woman wrecking a cafe with her telekinetic powers. In an interview with Yahoo Movies, Thinkmodo founder Michael Krivicka said “People were totally cool with being in the video after getting the living hell scared out of them. Each reaction ended with a laugh, and everyone loved the look of the baby.”
