Manchester Airport hires hologram staff and no, you're not dreaming
Manchester airport has decided to help us all to imagine a world where we're all feeling slightly mad and divorced from reality by introducing hologram staff.
Apparently, to help speed-up security queues, they're replacing real staff who are largely ignored in favour of holograms of the staff you previously ignored.
As of today, images of Manchester airport employees John Walsh and Julie Caper - which have been created using the same technology that brings the group Gorillaz to life - will be in force to tell you about liquids and that.
These terrifying holograms will be at the entrance to the security search area to talk to you about restrictions and whatnot. This way, passengers can spit and swear at those they feel are holding them up without fear of arrest or watching someone cry in a ball on the floor.
"We don't want anyone to have to throw their drink or make-up away so we've tried lots of different ways to reinforce the liquid rules, from posters to people dressed up as giant deodorant cans," the real Julie Caper says, adding to the bizarre dream-like feel of this who situation. "Maybe holograms are the answer? If our holograms help our passengers through the security process even quicker, then it will be a good thing."
We're clearly in the endgame folks.
