Zeffer7, if you look back a few posts you can see that it was proven that it`s for Toyota.

So we all agree that this is fake, but few people have said _why_ they think it is fake.
The reasons appear to be:
- Too perfect to be real. (I agree)
- Damage was too small for the size. (Meteors generally disintegrate in the atmosphere. The small ones never even hit the ground. Larger ones loose mass as they burn up, and may hit the ground at any size. The flames around the meteorite make it look larger than it is, and it might have totally disintegrated as it hit the ground. There would still be a lot of damage, but perhaps less than if anything solid had hit.)
- Falling debris. (Something metallic is seen falling after the impact. Was that the container that held the explosives?)
- Tame dialog. (If people really had witnessed such an event, they would probably be saying a bit more than "Woo!")

Other curious things:
- What happened to the quad that the truck was carrying?
- If this is a truck commercial, where is the punch line/logo?

OMFG EVERYONE IS AN IDIOT. YOU ALL THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT BUT YOU HAVE NO CLUE. YES, OKAY THE VIDEO IS FAKE, BUT ITS MADE FOR EVERYTHING TO LOOK REAL. THAT IS THE SAME SIZE THAT A METEORITE WOULD BE AND IT CAUSED THE SAME EXPLOSION THAT A METEOR WOULD CAUSE!! YOU ALL THINK THAT YOU ARE EXPERTS ON THIS SH*T AND YOU SAY WHY ITS FAKE AND WHATNOT...cool though

A real meteorite that big would`ve put a massive crater in the ground. They would`ve been blown to bits by the shock of the impact. Also, the camera fuzzing out was fake. Falling down wouldn`t make the camera do that, and if the shockwave was susposed to do it, it would black out the camera before the guy landed, and it would`ve blacked out for a second or two.

Looks like a truck commercial or something, yeah.

it hit the truck if one really did that it would not only leave a crater in the ground but it would have flattened the truck

Just how fast do you think a meteor moves?
`Cause that camera, sure as hell doesn`t have enough frames to catch it.
Another thing, flames don`t do that when airborn...
They don`t travel AHEAD of the object.
Whatever, it`s a really good video, took time and effort, but come on, is there really a debate that it`s not a real event?
Still cool though.

Meteors generally disintegrate in the atmosphere, or bounce off of the atmosphere unless they are very very large. Like, miles

Come to think of it, you never see this happen even among the vast amount of internet media. It goes to show how rare meteor impacts are here. Of all the obscure ways to die, getting smacked by a meteor has got to be one of the most freak-rare. Despite that, scientists say its a matter of time before life on earth is decimated again by another one. Interesting paradox...

that was well to fake...b-cuz the meteor would have made a crater and also it would have killed everyone around it, it would have broke the camera to with the impact....andi dont think people would be able to ride around just after a meteor collison since the ground would shake for atleast 10 mins and last thing you wouldnt be saying `woo` b-cuz you would have been shaking like crap

Fake, I think... a small explosive and then a meteor added in? A meteor would have stirred more dust up than that.

Which is more likely: people having just come within inches of their lives after a completely unexpected meteor hits, or people going "w00" after having blown something up safely?
