If you have even the slightest trace of automatonophobia, which is the fear of dolls, dummies or similar figures (and frankly, who doesn't get a little skeevy in the presence of those glassy-eyed horrors), then be very grateful you weren't a victim of this hidden-camera stunt – which looks like it might be the work of the same Brazilian television team who earlier brought a Chucky ad to life. This time it's an entire miniature army of animated dolls waiting to prey on the patrons of a toy store.
