Vending Machine Delivers Scares Instead of Free Treats

by Hazel Chua

What would you do if you saw a vending machine offering free treats? You’d most likely jump at the chance to grab a couple of them before the machine runs out.

So there you are, thinking that it’s your lucky day, as you reach into the machine to get your treat…

…but instead, begin screaming your head off when a dead-looking hand grabs yours.

I hate to break it to you, but you’ve just been had. This was probably the ghastly experience that people who chanced upon the Scares vending machine in Dublin, Ireland had. The entire set-up involved having comedian comedian Marcus Olaoire hide inside the machine and wait for unwitting victims to reach for a treat.

The entire thing was part of a Halloween publicity stunt for a snack company. Too bad they didn’t post a video of people’s reactions.
