‘Devil’s Due’ evil baby stunt in N.Y.: Funny as a heart attack?
Have you seen the “Devil’s Due” movie promotion featuring a robotic devil baby in a remote-controlled perambulator? Everyone else has.
Posted Monday, the viral video had nearly 9.4 million views on YouTube as of Tuesday afternoon. The stroller approaches people on the sidewalks of New York, and the baby then scares them out of their wits (except for that one guy).
The YouTube video is shown in all its gory below (or here for mobile users). Be warned, the fake demon child screams, spews what looks like milk and even flips New Yorkers the bird.
The video doesn’t show any fallout from the scares. Is everyone good-natured about it? Does no one rant: “You could have given me a heart attack!”
The 20th Century Fox horror film is about a newlywed couple who experience a mysterious lost night on their honeymoon. Suddenly, there’s an earlier-than-planned pregnancy, which begins to turn sinister.
Will you see the movie or boycott it over its heart-attack, evil-baby promotion?
