Its clear to see that the frame shifts and the head and neck and in more of a 45 degree angle just before the axe comes down.

I lolled.

I mean, I've seen beheadings before... and that was faker than 2 possibly fakes things getting hitched and having quintuplets. One of which survives and lives on to be the fakest thing alive.

1 slow motion strike? haha.. was it a light sabre? "slowly, slowly, thats it... plop - There you go.. Well done mr axe man!!"



yeah so the video was fake, but why anyone would even believe it was MQOS.... oh man, that time traveller in the Charlie Chaplan movie has a lot of splainen to do!!

Wow! They had cameras back in the 1587? I never knew that.
Come on, bud. You can't tell me you legitimately thought this was ACTUAL footage of the death of Mary Queen of Scots. The fact that it took place back in the 1500s should've been your first clue. Clue 2? The complete lack of blood. A beheading creates a bloody mess. Have you never seen a real beheading? (not that I recommend it).

lmao that was the funniest fake video ever!!
Its sooo obviously FAKE that i question the intelligence of anyone that says otherwise. As soon as she lays her head down theres a cut in the video in which its obvious the womens body is replaced with a horribly unrealistic dummy
then the executioner brings the axe down with no obvious force in the swing and the head rolls off with ease lol FAKE! FAKE! FAKE! and hilariously fake! I give it
for entertainment value!
