Watch Dogs pranks real people with "real" hacks

In what might be one of the most terrifying visions of the future the creators of Watch Dogs have released yet, a set of pranks has been unveiled. A crowded Los Angeles street has several unwitting victims filmed attempting to get their phones fixed. When they do, a phone-fixing shop owner gives them an app with unbelievable power.

Each of the hacks you're about to see can be done in the game Watch Dogs. The game Watch Dogs will be coming on May 27th, 2014 – until then, you'll have to live the real life through these users.

Warning: If you get easily agitated by camera crews tricking regular folks off the street into believing they're about to be arrested by the police, avert your eyes.
