Oh, augmented reality, what can’t you do?

A little application to a UK bus shelter, and people waiting for their transportation were confronted with tentacles from the sewers, debris from space, and giant robot attacks.

Most caught on pretty quickly, but it was still cool. For a moment, They Believed.

Too bad it was promoting a drink as terrible tasting as Pepsi max. But I guess that just makes the company try harder.
