Everyone was scared of the long-haired, crawl-out-of-the-TV girl from The Ring back when that movie came out. You know, this one.

So how did we go 15 years before someone realized it'd make a great prank?

Don't have an answer, but at least that's been fixed. The Facebook page for the new sequel, Rings, put up this video of prospective TV buyers getting the crap scared out of them by the woman from The Ring slyly crawling out of one of the TVs.

Here's the video. Enjoy.
