Pretty good trick, but the woman's barely moving shuffling and movements out of sync should have tipped those people off.
it's actually a brilliant illustration of how people interpret what they see and ignore what doesn't make sense.

This is one of the most disturbing pranks I've seen in a while. Imagine how you'd respond if this happened to you. It would BREAK YOUR MIND.

This also would double as a vampire detector. If they don't act like anything's out of the ordinary, then stake 'em!

-1 because i'd like to think i would get the trickery if it was me, and -1 for this being on break dot com first :( that site sucks

I'm sorry, this mirror only reflects attractive people.

Wouldn't it be terrible if a schizophrenic in remission came in and had a breakdown because he was just starting to get his life back on track and now it was all happening again?

Oh man, the faucet in the other room turns on when yours turns on. That is the fucking icing right there.
This also makes favorites because the cop or the lesbian bicycle courier or whoever that is at 3:00 is completely fucking terrified.

The glasses bit was awesome. Way to roll with it. I would have cracked up if I was the other twin.

This is the real reason for World War 2. Germans are dicks.

Good find, that's absolutely brilliant. I'd start reliving all my fourth-grade fantasies.

This isn't how mirrors work. I know because I'm a bouncer and I bounce at bars that have mirrors.

It's like the candid camera version of the trick from The Prestige.

I think it'd be interesting to play with the differences between the two women and the two rooms and see to what extent people will selectively interpret dissonant visual cues. Or: surprise punching

They missed the chance to scare the bejesus out of them, there.

See, now Petrus knows how to do this RIGHT. Next time, it's gotta be a dingey, scummy bathroom with maybe one half-functioning florescent tube, and after dark. Maybe at some truck stop where enough people would be eliminating waste at that hour to make it work. Pull some Japanese horror on truckers, then ask them to sign release papers on the footage for cash, after they finish eliminating their waste in their pants.
Forget the knife, have the creepy dingy bathroom, of course, but have the twin on the opposite side of the mirror just stop mimicking the first one and slowly turn and stare at you with an entirely blank expression while the one on your side continues to blithely fix her make up.
Would put me in the institution right quick.

These people are too polite, my first instinct would have been to hip check that woman

I can only see two outcomes for me:
Instantly work out the trick, or:

Lol... this was pretty cool.
|colander - 2008-07-17 |
i like the concept, but the way they pulled this off was BORING
the right way to do it would be for the mirror twins to totally ignore any other people in the bathroom
this would have the effect of forcing them to question the very fact of their material existence
that would inevitably lead to someone grabbing the girl and shaking her to get her attention.
yes, and that's when TASER

I love how even after the giveaway, the woman in red still doesn't get it.
