Just feels fake to me. I don't know why. Unfortunately, ever since that "Wanted" viral campaign, I question most videos.

Only slightly over a year old, but I was using it as an example of fake videos anyway.

I remember seeing that a few years ago and quite a few times over the years since.  That is definitely more than a year old.  The overlay must be added on.

Nope, that video is a piece of viral advertising for the movie Wanted. It was made last year.

I doubt that unless they laid it out to look exactly like one that has been floating around for quite a while.  That has been around way before 2008.

I'm not arguing against the fact that someone used it - that much is demonstrable - I'm saying it's not original to their usage.  It wouldn't be the first time someone took a net floater and used it to push some product.

The video in the first link shows hidden camera footage and alternate angles.

Quote from the second link:
"But now it appears that the video was a hoax.

Russian director Timur Bekmambetov says he created it and used it as a viral email to publicise his latest movie, ‘Wanted’."

No, I'm not, that one is too similar.  What do you expect the director to say?  You really think he's going to say "I saw a vid that floated around in 2004 and copied it thinking nobody would remember it"?

This is a well known fake, but since CHHHHHAAAAAAADDDD didn't know, we must all be wrong.

Come on, Chad.

Those videos don't disappear, so find the one you're talking about. I don't doubt there's a similar one, but your first accusation was that this was just an old video with a new time stamp.

Yes, it was, and that I was wrong on.  It looks so similar though that it can't be a coincedence.  Even the guy's path through the cubes, the layout of the cubes, and the actions he takes are nearly identical.  Everyone with me that saw the first one figured it was a student film project that went viral or something because there was never any associated news items. 

And no, I'm not going looking for it, because I don't particularly care if any of you agree with me.   ;D

Robbery suspects recorded on Google Streetview

A kid was robbed of some money and a cellphone. Probably just after a Google Streetview camera car passed. A few months later he sees the guys back on Google Streetview and he goes to the police.

BTW that kid must be really happy he has a last name like that!

Not really news, but it's amazing what people are thinking when they go on stage for these "talent" shows.

Fouad moved from France to the UK to start his singing career. For the X Factor judges he performs a very unique interpretation of Mariah Carey's "Vision of Love" and "Hero"

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9MXX4eXqCo[/youtube]

He looks like a perfect character for a new Sacha Baron Cohen movie ... Arabian French Homosexual leaves France to persue a singing career in the UK. On his way to the top he suffers prejudice and misunderstandings.

BTW a while ago I also saw a Bulgarian women doing a Mariah Carey song called "Ken Lee"

That could be cool. The kids could have their very own real missile base fort. Looks like nice land.

I bet that place is riddled with contaminated soil and hazardous materials.  There has to be a reason the guy didn't ever bother excavating the site to see what is down there.  I think I remember this having been for sale in the past and getting passed around the net.  I wonder if this is the same seller or the sucker that guy offloaded onto.
