Aukland, New Zealand – A marketing stunt to promote the video game Splinter Cell Conviction, sparked an armed police callout after an actor with bandanges on his hands pointed a gun at terrified pubgoers in Auckland’s Viaduct Basin.
About 20 people drinking outside Degree bar dove for cover after the promotions worker threatened them with a black imitation pistol about 8pm on Friday. Senior Sergeant Ben Offner said officers could not tell the gun was made of plastic until they had taken it from the actor.

I wish someone would have recorded this on their cellphone camera or something… It would have been interesting to see the realism.
I could see things ending up a lot worse in the U.S. considering the amount of people that could be in armed in the vicinity.
