I was listening to Art Bell's Dark matter when he mentioned this video so I went and had a look and thought I would post for ATS.
The video in question shows a guy on a 3 wheel pedal car going through an intersection when a fast moving truck appears to hit him broadside....
However something transports the guy and pedal car to safety... A hoax ( I think so because I find it hard to believe in such stuff) great special
effects no doubt. The video after the event is slowed down and zoomed in showing different times of the event. Interesting presentation regardless.
As much as I love this video, I have to call shenanigans on it. My reason is the shadow of the pedicab in front of the van. The shadow should be long
down the street as it comes into the path of the van. Instead, the shadow is down at the base of the pedicab at about a 45 degree angle whereas it
should be stretched way out at more like a 10-15 degree angle and sweeping across the road as the two met. It is still one of my favorites though.
Great job to the visual fx guy. You almost got me there.
Wanna see an example? Go stand in front of your car at night and note where the shadows point.
