Pop star Shakira is creating buzz for her new single 'She-Wolf' with a cannibalistic viral campaign. In the video above, a NYC tour bus passes by a she-wolf attacking a pedestrian. The she-wolf is a Shakira lookalike--a curious coincidence.
The buzz on Shakira's 'She-Wolf' single is that it will be released later this month, but details are scant. Check out some other unusual viral campaigns below.

Publicity stunts are an alternative method of advertising which sparks discussion in society. Companies who are having difficulty grasping the attention of consumers through traditional advertising methods should consider staging a publicity stunt instead.
