NY Daily News ^ | 1/15/13 | IRVING DEJOHN

The terrible 2s came early for this bogus baby.

An animatronic infant wreaked havoc on the streets New York City for a viral marketing campaign that scared the hell out of some bystanders.

The “devil baby” — cruising around the streets in a remote control stroller — would lie in wait for an unsuspecting person to check on the child before pouncing, growling and sometimes even flipping the bird.

I guess I would lose my balance from the shock, and accidentally swing the contraption in an arc against the curb hard enough for it to be completely destroyed. “Oops” I’d say.

I'd OWN at LEAST a new car from the money I got after successfully sueing the sob's that gave me the heart attack.

A VERY stupid thing to do.

William Castle's contraptions were installed INSIDE the theater showing the movie. The patrons entered in knowing what they were going to get.

This "viral" marking is film exploitation in what is known as a publicity stunt. Stage an event in public to generate press.

Looks like it worked.

Then again journalists think they've done their job if they have spent the afternoon looking at youtube clips and posting what they saw.

Unattended baby carriage, and a shock surprise, in post 9/11 New York, that hardly seems funny.

At least this isn’t a NY Post report. Then I’d suspect collusion between News Corp’s Fox (the distributor) and their newspaper holdings.

ABCDisney and other “news” agencies engage in such shenanigans all the time.

Saw House on Haunted Hill as a kid, and can still remember the skeleton that came out from behind the curtains on stage, and traveled above, on a wire across the theater. It was during the scene where Vincent Price brings up the skeleton from the acid bath to scare his wife.

I was on the movie website watching the trailer and there is actually a link to convert your religious affiliation to Satanism on your Facebook page. I know it’s just a marketing scheme but I found that to be outrageous!
