If you can tell me exactly how you could fake something like this without million dollar hollywood editors, then I will believe you. Until then shove your opinion up your ass and keep it there.
because momentum doesn`t exist
Commisioned by Saatchi & Saatchi Copenhagen and Quiksilver.
It is faked, like somone said before, a composite of real events spliced together to fool some of you ;)
Somebody back me up here?
B) It is fake. Dynamite floats. The bundle - as shown - would have blown on the top of the surface which would barely move enough water to cause ripples...much less a surfable.
C) Still a cool commercial.
However it is unlikley that all these events happened at the same time.
I am unsure of how real this is. Whoever did it is fu.cking amazing.
Now, combining my knowlege of explosives, graphics and people in general, I am going to say that 100% of the idiocies comming from the people here IS stemming from the fact the video is fake, but this is just an oppertunity for the typical moron (probably hillbilies :) ), to show how much their life is wrong and drated up by trying to explain why it is fake.
Case in point the exact place where the video comes into doubt is the switch from the MIST just after the explosion to the wave, the shot seems to "blink" and change angels almost subliminally, this gives typical people an oppertunity to show how moronic they are but also allows them to identify it is fake, which it seems to be.
My asertion is that the video is a composite of real events...
Second of all to the person who mentioned oh my god you can`t get dynamite, it`s actually extremely easy to make and buy it, places like homedepot sell it in some states for construction work, also in countries like Russia I`m sure you can pick it up at a flea market.
Thirdly to the people that mentioned it wasn`t enough explosives, it`s kind of dependant honestly, but it would seem resonable, one mentioned you would need something the size of a depth carge, this person is an idiot, most of the videos around of depth charge explosions are shot from a mile away, so they seem small, the reality is a depth charge would take out an entire block, and the explosion here is just the size of an olympic swimming pool. The person in question must suffer from blindness.
Finally to the person who said the fuse would go out:
Badassness is oozing from this video.
whether it was actually done or CGI`d doesnt matter, it was an advertisement. Ads are lame.
...An amateur-video recording in doubtful quality has created violent discussion on various internet pages. Are the recordings real, have the roots permission to blow up the lake in the air, and who are "the perpetrators" behind the stunt?...Quicksilver, taking creidt for the video, has said "Yes, we have to do with the film...it`s already popular on many Danish and foreign sites." He`ll reveal later whether the film is real, or whether it`s clean computer technology. But he maintains that there aren`t made anything illegal in connection with the film. At the police one doesn`t know of the video, but informs that it isn`t probable that there is given permission to a dynamite-detonation in a lake in the middle of Copenhagen.
2. it would have made the papers.. it didn`t.. there is literally no argument that could refute that aside from "it was invisible to everyone but the 5 people involved"
3. stop bit ching.. who cares if it is fake. it is still cool and should be taken as such. not flamed because you think it is fake.
And after only watching it once, and before i read all this crap, i believe it`s real. I don`t care if it was done legally or illegally, by ad execs or by people just throwing the quicksilver logo at the end of a video they made. I honestly believe, at first opinion, that the dynamite and water and wave were all done in real time. And the people throwing out that it`s CG...when have you ever seen CG that damn good? Even big budget movies can`t get CG to look that good, you think Quicksilver can?
Blowing poo up (including rivers, especially near bridges and stuff) is illegal, and probably makes you a `terrorist`.
To get that kind of UNDERWATER explosion, you`d use a depth charge of some description. Then it would have the charge enclosed or have an electrical ignition.
Would have been more convincing if he wasn`t standing on the bridge waving it around first...it couldnt be any more fake...
It`s physics guys...sort it out people!
I didn`t believe that it was `real` in the sense that some kids decided to do this. I thought the effects upon the water were real.
Looked fun, whether it was real or fake :-D
btw, its still a cool vid 8-)
I think the explosion and the wave shots are fake, but on the other hand at the end of the shot you see a car with the alarm going on the oppesite side of the lake.
i think its fake, y wud quicksilver put their name to that plus i aint heard bout it on the news or nething
if it is real, it would have been set up, with roads blocked off and stuff...that`s how i see it, anyway
It looks fun though.
I still think its cool, regardless if it is fake or not.
