Whoever did it cut corners big time. And it wasn't even that good to begin with.
Just to point out, you do realise the video is only captured at OR reduced to about 10fps? There is bound to be lost frames in the sequence.
As for the fireball, tend to agree.
As for the whole thing over there, I couldn't care to be brutally honest. But I don't see this as the lowest trick in the book, as this thread seems to make it appear. Plenty of 'official' photos and footage have been touched up or edited in order to make the subject appear greater than it was on film - by many countries - ever since we've been able to capture things on film.
