Hologram of a President Candidate – level 3

10-02-2017 07:00

France’s far-left candidate, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, surprised his supporters by appearing in front of them in the form of a hologram. The candidate appeared by projection before thousands of his supporters in Paris while speaking live from Lyon over 450 kilometers away. In this way, he was able to meet his supporters in two cities simultaneously.

His supporters said that they were captivated by the hologram, which was so realistic. Some people said that they forgot that he was not actually there. One of the supporters found the effect super interesting. He said that at the start it was very exciting, and then he practically forgot that there was a hologram. It worked very well.

Difficult words: hologram (a 3D image made with a laser), captivate (catch somebody’s attention).
