Brief Explanation

Instead of telling people how ultra compact LG Mini is, LG showed it in a live stunt. LG hired not pickpockets but “putpockets” to slip the phone into the pockets of unsuspecting pedestrians. For real. This was shot live using 7 hidden cameras in a central square in Buenos Aires. LG Mini was so small, nobody caught on. Imagine their surprise when their pockets start to ring and vibrate. LG Mini.
