If this wasn't a scam, it'd be darn irritating.

What if some old lady tripped and died while coming down the escalator?

My guess is that most people who aren't interested to begin with still won't be interested after the prank.

Something similar but with auditive defficient was made in Argentina. We couldn't listen to the sound of the movie. Than the concept "If you were angry because you didn't listen for 3 minutes, imagine people who stay like that for all life. Donate... etc."

so you missed three minutes of audio in a movie you paid admission for?? thats bullshit! i dont think that is an effective way to coax people into donating.

Ashlands,

I don't think it is effective. But it was not the movie they cut the audio. They cut the audio from a trailer, I guess. Anyway, that idea was made 5, 6 years ago. See ya,

encouraging eye donation or merchandise robbery? it works for a creative workshop. not for real life. imagine accidents and getting sued afterward. if it was a blackout in cinema before the movie screening and the same voice over came, i'll buy it.

because it's the place where sight and sound are essentials. and people already stick to their seats. no harm done and ready for any audio played. you can also set a donation counter outside the cinemas.

I don't know how long the lights were off but if it was just for a sec, no harm could have been possibly done.
I think it frightened people and it was just a simple blackout for a moment. After this experience and after VO coming on I believe it made people really think about it.
I personally would donate...I'm glad I have no such problems...
