    I vote real. Very few people in Asia (except criminals willing to do life) carry guns so there probably was an expectation that no one would respond that way.


    Edit: parkour and this type of stuff will weed out a lot of the kids growing up now.

    I don't know. Muzzle flash from the gun looks like it was digitally added to me. This whole thing would be easy to fake with software and squibs. I don't think I buy it.

    Here is an example of a prank video made by the German slingshot master Joerg Sprave a few years ago. He did it using a friend's help in preparation for a zombie movie he was hoping to raise funds for. Looks very realistic at first. But you can immediately notice something in his video that I noticed in the video posted here - seems any time a camera is 'dropped' it always conveniently lands in such a way as to capture exactly what they want on video after the 'event' occurs. He convinced a lot of people that he was really seriously hurt. Those that know him (I've been in contact with him a few times over the years) were let in on the joke if they PM'd him on his forum:



    Here is the video he posted showing how he did it:

    Fake! Pretty good fake, but I agree with etrain16, digitally enhanced.

    Ha, I have a touch screen lap top that allows me to zoom in while playing video so I can catch things like that! Same when Levoy got shot!

    I have a 55" plasma connected to a MacPro Tower I just only use it to watch TV and edit videos and pictures.

    It's ALL fake.

    Everything, I mean.

    'Is Réaltacht ar cleas na súile de bharr easpa alcól.'

    An old Irish saying that means, roughly, 'Reality is an illusion caused by lack of alcohol'.

    I'm voting fake. After the the guy pulled a gun the camera man hung around to see how it was going to unfold? Seems unlikely.

    I don't get it? Can't understand a word they're saying.
