Isn’t it rather annoying to see these European-based ad campaigns that use elaborately concocted hoaxes in order to garner video views on YouTube?
Today, I received a forward from an aviation friend. It’s a YouTube video depicting a guy who allegedly achieves human-powered flight using a pair of home made wings made–surprisingly–using a kite with both the name and logo of Slingshot Kites:
Notice how the guy on the left runs through the wing on his way to block the camera in the flight. This next video is also done in the same fashion–with a bunch of over-animated Europeans and a really crappy videographer:
That viral video campaign was put together for a company called Killathrill. Here are a couple more fake videos with many of the same traits:
It’s shiza alright!
