Psychothriller Locker Shocker, a company that publishes thriller and suspense audiobooks in Germany, promoted their new crime series, “Terminal 3”, by planting a pair of replica woman’s legs in lockers in Frankfurt and Berlin. Over two days in January 2012, Saatchi & Saatchi reserved all the free lockers at two main subway and bus stations in Frankfurt a. M. and Berlin. In the only locker they left open, they planted a pair of replica woman’s legs. Upon opening the locker, the horrified commuters were faced with the severed limbs, and a toe-tag that displayed the Psychothriller logo and a QR code that allowed them a promo sample download of a “Terminal 3” audiobook from the series.
