Fake Prison Break with Projectors in Amsterdam

Fake Prison Break with Projectors in Amsterdam

We recently came across an interesting viral video about a faked prison break used to promote a Dutch magazine’s special issue on criminals (English translation).  The video depicts a group of young guys hastily getting together a projector to fake a prisoner climbing out of his window in a famous prison complex called Bijlmerbajes.

The video pairs with the magazine’s special section and commentates on the recent criticism of prison breaks in nearby Belgium.   Projecting realistic images, even 3D ones, is becoming more popular and this Dutch magazine is hoping to cash in on the trend.  Who knows what other tomfoolery could occur with such realistic projection technologies out there. 

Check out the video below:
