Video: Ubisoft pranks unsuspecting shoppers with brilliant Watch_Dogs street prank

Ubisoft recently decided to prank people into thinking they had become top-level hackers after their phones were upgraded with a 'special hack app'…

Can you imagine being able to open up any car on the street by just using an app on your smartphone? Or  what about being able to turn off street lights whenever you wanted? Well that’s what Ubisoft led a few shoppers to believe when they fooled them into thinking an app could contain all that hackable power...

It’s a sneaky prank, but it’s very funny. However, we will say that we were a tad surprised at how willing some people were to break into the cars on the street… just sayin'.

Here’s a look at the behind the scenes making of the prank…
