Abandoned subway station turned into epic marketing stunt for Prometheus

If you've ever seen the Prometheus movie poster, then you'd probably agree that the big head in it is not something the faint of heart would want to see during a train ride through a dark, subway tunnel. But if you think coming across the giant head in the dark is exciting rather than creepy, you'd love the marketing stunt pulled by the Prometheus people in Paris.

As part of a marketing campaign for Ridley Scott's pseudo-prequel to Alien, a massive bust was installed in a Parisian subway station that's been deserted for the past 73 years. Blue lights surround the area to add a chilling effect to it all.

Watch the video above to see what the humongous disembodied head looks like to a train passenger. And while you're at it, check out this promotional video of the movie shown during the 2012 TED conference.
