The Crisis Cast supply role-play actors to make hoaxes of real events.
They market themselves as “We are utilizing visual senses, auditory senses…”
“…having a role play of all things and actors portray real life events. Means you can engage your own responses as they happen to that scenario. There’s something about role play and going through scenario that works for many-many levels…”
So, they are doing events with people, “where’s all bleeding and screaming and reacting in various ways.”
“A HOAX is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as the truth.
One of the earliest recorded hoaxes in history was the drummer of Tedworth in 1661.
Word HOAX was coined in 18th century from the verb hocus, “to cheat,” and of the magic incantation.
During the 20th century, the HOAX found a mass market.
A HOAX is created with deliberate creation of falsehood and conscious attempt to deceive.
A FRAUD is classified as a HOAX when its method of acquiring financial gain creates a broad public impact or captures the imagination of the masses.
A hoax differs from a magic trick or from fiction in that the audience is unaware of being deceived, whereas in watching a magician perform an illusion the audience expects to be tricked.
Governments spread false information to facilitate their objectives, such as going to war; also called propaganda or disinformation.”
