Do you enjoy faking orgasms in public places, or telling friends you see dead people? If so, New York City's Tribeca Film Festival has the ad campaign for you! 

Created by J. Walter Thompson, the push celebrates the event's 15th anniversary with a mix of experiential, digital and traditional components. 

The feature presentation is a machine called the ReActor. Combining voice and facial recognition technology with motion sensors, the unit records people acting out scenes from famous movies, and sends participants YouTube links of their best performances to share with friends.
