Occam's razor doesn't provide a plausible theory. It's a tool to help you choose between multiple plausible theories. It says usually your safest bet
is to go with the simplest theory that explains the evidence. Not that it's the only theory.
Sure maybe he was possessed. Maybe he was even possessed by the spirit of a pink unicorn from the Andromeda galaxy. Heck I don't know.
But without doing further testing to find additional evidence that could debunk the theory that he faked it, like I don't know, finding pink unicorn
ectoplasm all over the floor, there's no reason to complicate matters.
The theory that he faked it explains everything I see in this video. Until someone actually does go to the store and investigates it and finds
evidence that can't be explained by the controversial, he faked it theory, I think that's as far as we can go.
See, Occam's razor actually creates more scientific inquiry. Without it, we'd all just chock this video up to pink unicorn possession and then we'd
all go home not knowing the truth. But now, thanks to Occam's razor, people like you may actually investigate the story even further to try and prove
it's not fake.
See, Occam's razor is working.
