Is it only me getting the feeling that this was shot last week or something with a shoddy camera? The last minute or two feels like acting, can't really tell why. Besides; don't worry what will happen. Concentrate on yourself this year, let go of your fears, forgive yourself and your family, stop asking 'why me?' and start asking 'why NOT me?'. Love yourself and love others. Be at service to others, and let the plan unfoldedit on 10-1-2012 by OleMB because: (no reason given)

If the video was shot in 1980, it means the guy must have been 40 when he gave the interview (he claims he was 10 when in the 50's he predicted the Man on the Moon). Well he does not look like 40 in the video but a little younger. His clothes could match the ones used in the 80's but I have to say that being the year 1980, it was like being more in the 70's than 80's and in this case his clothes and hair were not following the fashion of that period.
Behind him there's a yellow book which seems to have the title "KAROUSEL" (or CAROUSEL with a C, it's impossible to say) and under it I can read something like "OAK". I googled both words but didn't get anything. Does anybody know a yellow book like that?
If this is for real, the guy is just amazing (much better than Cayce...LOL) but I believe this to be a gigantic fake, IMHO.
There is NO WAY this guy is 40, look at him, hes a guy in his late twenties, he doesnt have any lines on his face, and ofcourse he just happens to be a spectacle wearer, how handy would that be for a person who had reasons to obscure his face.

As people have said it looks to clear for footage taken those days in my opinion, I mean even big broadcasters were shooting lower quality than that and they must have a lot of money for high end equipment. Also why is the interview only 6 mins long? It is likely is has been severely shortened or its a hoax in my opinion. No one goes through all the trouble with the lighting etc just to interview a random psychic for 6mins,

Someone on youtube beat me to it but: It's Fake.
"Not even the mere 640 lines of resolution in modern standard analog NTSC format. If this video were indeed shot in 1980 originally, it would have had only 330 lines of resolution MAX. Even the best digital remastering could not interpolate the level of resolution in this video from a source with 1/3 of the resolution of this video. No doubt about it, this video COULD NOT have been shot in 1980, PERIOD!!!"

Well what are they marketing then? What is their product?
It is a marketing competition for students to get their work as much exposure as possible.
the email at the end is firstname.lastname@example.org
the website is hm2012.ca
The website is in French because it is from the French speaking part of canada (hence the .ca)
CA is also the area code for california where this supposed Frenchman has lived for 20 years - it is also the 20th anniversary of the marketing competition.
He talks about 2012, it is the key focus of the video and the only bit that is still in the future - the competition, and hence website is HM2012.
The interview is in French because they speak French, the story is contrived to fit around that, by trying to squeeze the 20 years in CA into the story it has screwed up the timeline of the story, etc, etc, etc
