The video of a girl with an iPad head walking around Bryant Park in New York City has gone viral. It has already garnered more than 280,000 views on YouTube in just 2 days.
The video is actually a viral ad for CFG (or Cosmo For Guys), Cosmopolitan’s first magazine for men, which will be available solely on the iPad via the iTunes App Store for $1.99 per issue, $3.99 per month or $19.99 per year.
The video, created by the viral marketing company Thinkmodo (creators of such fake viral hits as “Frank’s Marriage Proposal in Central Park”), features pre-shot footage of the girl walking in the park. The girl was able to see via a camera hidden in her purse and a pair of video glasses inside the helmet.
