Colin Farrell’s new crime thriller “Dead Man Down” opens this Friday.  And to promote it, an ad agency in New York pranked a bunch of people . . . by staging a fake MURDER in an elevator, and letting them walk in on it.

When the elevator doors opened, they saw a guy STRANGLING another guy with a rope–again, this is NOT REAL!

Which makes it so interesting and in some cases, laugh out loud hilarious though are the reactions of the people.

My favorite is the guy who makes use of the fire extinguisher while the elevator door is closing!  Yeah…thanks for nothing!

It’s an interesting social experiment–and one that makes me think we’re all on our own–even more so than I thought.

So…what would YOU do?
