Youtube stars Caspar Lee and Oli White team up for the ultimate Halloween scare
Unsuspecting supermarket shoppers got a little more than they bargained for during their weekly shop when they were ambushed by a group of terrifying zombies.
The zombies appeared behind tills, at the fish counter and in the freezers, as members of the public went about their shop. Customers reactions were recorded on hidden cameras as the zombies caused chaos in the supermarket aisles.
Many shoppers were frightened at first but gasps soon gave way to laughs as they realised they had been ‘tricked’ – and the ‘zombies’ were actually YouTube pranksters in elaborate costume.
YouTube stars Caspar Lee and Oli White collaborated on the stunt, to mark the launch of Fanta Dark Orange – a brand new spooky flavour released for a limited time only specifically for Halloween.
Joined by professional ‘zombie’ actors, they snuck up on unsuspecting supermarket shoppers, parodying the classic horror movie trope of the ‘zombie supermarket showdown’.
Caspar and Oli commented: “In every zombie movie, there’s always a showdown in the supermarket. Everyone knows we love a prank and we couldn’t resist recreating this classic set-up for Halloween.”
The pair underwent hours of makeover mastery from leading prosthetic artist, Claire Haxell White,to be transformed into zombies for the prank.
Dee Woolcott, Senior Brand Manager for Fanta Great Britain, said: “Halloween is a huge moment in the year and to celebrate, we wanted to launch a new, fun version of Fanta that is delicious, but with a scary twist. It wouldn’t be Halloween without a trick to go with the treat – and that’s where Caspar Lee and Oli White come in. They were the perfect pranksters to help us bring this classic horror movie situation to life, in a spooky yet hilarious way.”
Launched for the scary season, new limited-edition Fanta Dark Orange is full of flavour, but with a terrifying twist – instead of its usual vibrant orange colour, Fanta has been transformed to become jet black to create the scariest Fanta ever.
Available in 2L and 500ml, the perfect Halloween inspired drink is across stores nationwide for a limited time only, so get your claws on it while you can – it’s bound to have Fanta fans howling with excitement.
