Donkey Kong makes kids cry in US marketing stunt


Nintendo had already shared their plans at Los Angeles to advertise Donkey Kong Country 3D’s release, yet one aspect went unannounced.

Zoo visitors took it in turns to play on Nintendo 3DS demo pods situated in front of a sign saying “Donkey Kong is bursting out in amazing 3D.”

Whilst playing, what they don’t expect is to shortly see costumed Donkey Kong tear through the sign scaring them witless. Children cry, adults laugh, and the surprise certainly works – see it below!
