That bizarre trailer for a new series about a supermodel-spy-superhero-cyborg-actress named Scarlet, that we featured a while back, turned out to be a marketing hoax just as everybody had suspected. It's a stealth marketing campaign for a new TV set from Korea's LG Electronics, with a red back panel. I'm actually kind of sad, since I'd let myself hope the red-eyed killer diva might be real, mostly due to veteran director David Nutter's very public involvement. It would have been better than Bionic Woman, anyway. [Wall Street Journal, via Wes]
