Looks like a re-do of the scene in Heroes where the cheerleader shows she's invincible by jumping off the bleachers...

Edit: Dammit BM!

I watched an episode of Cops in the 80s where some guy who had just taken an 8ball of PCP (whatever the fuck that is) was running from the cops. He ran up to the 6th floor of a parking garage and jumped off as soon as the cops got there.. Then, the cameras looked down to where he was on the ground - face first on the parking lot. Then.. the cops on the ground started chasing him as he just got up and ran another four blocks..

Maybe some people are just good at falling?

that guy was dead. he just didn't know it yet since he was so high on PCP. i doubt he survived later.

Didn't think it was THAT obvious... very well done IMO. Good link OP
I think people are saying it's obviously fake because he jumped off of a building and immediately walked away, not because of the quality of the video.

I think it was pretty well done, myself.

Last year, a lawyer committed suicide off the Empire State Building, my gf works across the street. There was a leg and a hand in front of their office. Of course, he hit a setback about halfway down and most of him was left there...but yeah, extremities pop off.

In New York, the folks on the ground watching would probably be yelling:

"HURRY UP AND JUMP YOU MOTHERFUCKER, I'M GONNA MISS MY BUS!

But yeah, that was pretty well done...except for the bounce...

Wow people, there is not IF it's fake. IT IS fake. All his bones would be broken and he'd be a spot on the pavement. People die jumping off bridges and hitting the water at that height. What makes you think he could survive a sidewalk?

Almost had me going. Actually did a decent job with the blood splatter on the ground.
I was a believer right up until he stood and walked around.

Yes, it's real. There are a bunch of pussies in this thread that would die if they tried it so the think it's fake. Just because this guy is tough doesn't mean it's fake.
