IMO this video looks fake. Watch the video first. http://www.killsometime.com/Video/video.asp?video=Bus-Dodge Your first reaction would be like " WTF?" The car that passes him looks real, but the bus looks edited in. Check out the shadow underneath him as the bus passes. Then check out the bus itself paused. It just seems fake to me. Ofcourse there may be idiots out there doing crazy shit like that :p

It must be fake, I think that your legs would "fly" up under the bus if you did that IRL, and as you said: you can see that the bus looks wierd when you pause.

Firstly, the car didn't seem too bothered by that man running straight out into the road. I don't know about the other drivers, but if I saw a guy doing that I'd instinctively swerve out of the way, or brake, or something. That driver did nothing but keep going on as normal. It is possible that: A) The driver was drunk and didn't react B) The driver's a sadist, and WANTED to hit somebody and claim he just ran out in front of him C) The driver's insane D) The man never ran out into the road -- not while that car was on it anyway Secondly, the bus driver made no apparent effort to stop. A few possibilities: A) The driver was drunk and didn't react B) The driver's a sadist, and WANTED to hit somebody and claim he just ran out in front of him C) The driver's insane D) The man never ran out into the road -- not while that bus was on it anyway Thirdly, look at how the shadow cast by that bus is very, very strange when it hits that man. It is possible that: A) The bus has been super-imposed -- but, the shadow on the road, and the lighting, is all fine. B) The man is super-imposed. I'm going to go with B) on that one. Given the other two, and the added fact that, as insane as he was, the man didn't flinch or hesitate even for a split second, this seems likely. Also, note that the puddle reflects the bus normally. I think this happened: The car and bus both drove past when they did, nothing strange about them. They were filmed from that location, however. Later, when the road was clear, the man ran out into the road and flopped himself down over the route the bus had taken. This was also filmed by the camera, which was in the same position. That movie was then inserted into the first, along with a shadow over the man for the bus, and voila, this video is the result.

Hmm...I must disagree with your theory mr. matt...if you watch very closely the bus (if not the car also) looks very editted in. Also, if you pause it, like others have said, the bus looks far from real.

This is the fakest s*** I've ever seen. Though, if you didn't think about it, it would look quite real. It looks really fake with that shadowing underneath the bus. :nodding:

i think that the bus was the only edited in part, the guy probably got a friend to drive the car, and then the bus was edited in, because if you look the cars shadow is slightly in front while the bus's is directly beneath it and more black than grey which it should be

DarthSporkyHmm...I must disagree with your theory mr. matt...if you watch very closely the bus (if not the car also) looks very editted in. Also, if you pause it, like others have said, the bus looks far from real.

Why would anybody take that approach when it's harder? The bus looks perfectly real. If you pause it, you get motion blur. The reflection of the bus in the puddle; look at it. When compared to the very poor shadow cast over the man, I don't think whoever made this has the necessary skills to be capable of inserting the bus to such a realistic degree.
