The flag seems to be moving as it should do in space. The only time the actual flaghead moves is when the handle is moved.
If the Chinese are guilty of anything it is having a dirty capsule (Ooer misses!) and dropping litter in space.
It looks like small debris exiting the capsule as this video demonstrates.
If there is debris exiting the capsule then it is plausible that a piece of debris came out and hit the astronaut's suit and moved away. The size and
shape of the object may have given the impression that it was a bubble.
Edit: Actually, it could be a bubble. If the guys had been playing around with liquids in zero gravity, as you do when you're in space and all
excited, some of the liquid could have been trapped in a fold of the suit and we are seeing it released when the guy is outside.
Personally, I do not think that what we are seeing is happening in water due to the expected movement of the flag and the object most likely being
debris exiting the capsule.
I doubt that the Chinese would have the need to fake a space walk. It is hardly a technological breakthrough given the fact we are moving rovers
around the Martian landscape!
