SnoopyBG is perfectly correct. This is not achievable.

This trick can only look realistic from one vantage point. But the video shows the Gag from multiple angles. This is impossible.

It`s like those sidewalk chalk artists. Their illusions can only be captured from a single viewing position. From any other position, the images are distorted and hardly recognizable.

To get a better idea of how impossible this is, pay close attention to the middle monitor. When the camera is pointing straight down to the floor, the middle monitor is displaying the bottom of the elevator shaft. But from viewing this gag from the offset camera angle, that same monitor doesn`t display the bottom of the elevator shaft, but the side wall of the elevator shat. So ask yourself, "How can a single monitor project two entirely different images toward two very specific viewpoints simultaneously?".

The answer is simple... they can`t.

It didn`t drop, the floor panels did, and even then only virtually.

TheGuySmiley - On the metal handrails.
skytz1337 - People are skittish and wouldn`t like it more as a just in case thing. People might start TRYING to break it (not to break it deliberately, but you know how teenage boys can be). I mean, I don`t like walking on glass walkways anyway, there wouldn`t be any chance in hell I would get into an elevator with a glass floor, safety tested with ten elephants or otherwise.

Because in different cameras the viewpoint of the 3d in screen changes. You can`t achieve this by playing it on the screens. You have to composite it later according the camera.

I see the unexplained green reflection, but why would a green screen even be necessary here? They can just build a small set relatively cheaply.

I didn`t see the green screen glow, i tried seeing it like 5 times but couldn`t see it... however, my main issue is the display angles.

For example when the hidden camera shows from above, the picture in the top right screen is different if compared to when viewing from the hidden camera in the button pusher. Plus the square, when zoomed in in HD looks kind of cropped around the edges.

@Afugy. Also, everyone is getting on and off the elevator on the 12th floor

At 1:26 you can see the reflection of the green screen on the handrail. Sorry, it`s fake.

Should have shown a video of the elevator shaft simulating the actual elevator falling...

You are now slightly more likely to buy LG products than you were 2 minutes ago. Have a nice day, consumer :)
