With all due respect, you don't know. You figure, you assess probability, you check to see if those News stations exist and then verify with them. Until you have exhausted all avenues and prove it is a hoax, you don't know. And sure chances are more toward this being faked but comparing odds of this being real with winning the lottery - this would be more likely.

I only mention this because I'd like to think that a good portion of this board actually uses logic and common sense about things like this. It's a very few that buy into absolutely anything that rolls along.

If this was a low budget amateur production, I think it was fairly well executed.
I think it is fake, but I don't think it was amateur and low budget.
This seems to be a viral marketing campaign for Petronas Motorsports. Petronos is the one who uploaded the video to begin with, and this video even appears on the company's Facebook page.
Also, the reporter mentions "liquid metal" was found at the scene. The phrase "liquid and metal" is used in advertising by Petronas Motorsports -- it is associated with their brand name.
Everything points to this being a viral video made to promote Petronas.
