There’s been some crazy promo going on in the Big Apple lately, the type which left some people shrieking in the streets and others dancing on mass transit. First up is the mechanized “Devil Baby” that went rolling around around the streets of Manhattan, popping out of its carriage and shrieking at (not to mention projectile-vomiting in the paths of) curious onlookers. All of these horrific shenanigans were part of an elaborate push for upcoming horror flick Devil’s Due (in theaters this Friday, January 17).
Not to be outdone by that sure-to-be-cherished cinema classic is the Grammys, who partnered up with chart-topping duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for a little prank by having the nominated pair step onto Brooklyn’s B6 bus and whip out a flash-like impromptu performance of their hit “Can’t Hold Us.” The trick underscored the fact that the hip-pop gents are good sports, as were the clapping passengers who made up their audience.
Watch both stunts below and see how New Yorkers reacted to each.
