    The camera was too steady when he got hit. Yes, there was some shake, but it was steady enough so the viewers could see the two men`s expressions when the camera man was hit.

    After a bit of thought, I`m going to have to state. This is a fake!

    Those cant fire like that. The issue being that the safety is in the tip, it can only fire if the tip is being pressed down.

    Just for the people who actualy believe this.

    I`ve been shot with a nailgun before. Wouldn`t/shouldn`t be that bad from that distance. Either this was staged as mentioned or something was wrong with the safety on that thing. If something was wrong with the safety, then I revert back to my comment on the distance.

    There`s a safety on the front of nailguns that prevents accidents like this; you have to hold it down or press into a surface to be able to fire the gun. Unless the safety was rigged (which I doubt), this couldn`t have happened. And I wouldn`t have bothered with all this if I thought the video were funny anyway. Sorry. :)

    ummm nailguns dont fire like that, most require preassure to be applied at the tip before the gun can discharge, its a built in saftey for the more powerfull ones.

    Fake! Unless the cameraman was shot below the stomach or in the head, there was no reason why he would fall down. And all of you talking about the safety feature on the air gun, the guy in the green shirt was NOT using it. He just fired it like a gun.

    I was the first to mention the safety, and only one person has commented on that, everyone repeated me adx nauseum. Yes it can be faulty, but I`m pretty sure it`s been ascertained that it is a commercial, And as I said first comment on this. Still funny.
