Is it just me, or are mannequins just a little bit freaky? While I don’t think it’s the only reason I do my clothes shopping online, it’s certainly a factor. I don’t have to deal with faceless, demonic mannequins when I’m on Amazon.
Anyway, while using mannequins is creepy in and of itself, what one store in Reno, Nevada, is doing with theirs has ratcheted up the creepy factor by 10. Through the strategic use of a digital projector, they managed to imbue a faceless mannequin with life…sorta. If you’re not unsettled by the video below, then you officially have an ironclad constitution.
That is…incredibly disturbing. I applaud those shopkeepers for their creativity, but I would wager that this thing drives people away more than anything else.
