So with a closer inspection here is how I think it happened.
Pause the video at 2 seconds.
This is where the very first "mist" seems to be coming out of your ear.
When I hold my hand in the same position and blow I feel warm air on my ear. After getting over the initial shock of being a little turned on from
blowing in my own ear I quickly realized that any warm moist air could easily cause this effect. Especially since the house was 70 degrees (cooler
than the air escaping your mouth) it could cause a fast vapor you wouldn't normally notice but can be captured by the cam.
So essentially we have a stream of warm moist air blown into your hand, deflecting off your ear and out into the room. The reason everyone was
thinking smoke is because as any smoker knows the shape moved just like smoke does in the normal currents of a room.
This warm moist air caused a vapor that was so fast and light the human eye didn't pick it up, but the CCD on the cam does "see" different white
balance wavelengths than your eyes (not by much though).
That and it does (ever so slightly) go in front of the sleeve, at least I think it does, it is hard to tell with the crummy cam resolution.
Thanks for posting though, it was fun to watch!
