it`s backwards because the guy who "tosses" it has a string or a retractor. It`s not hard, and they edited the last sequence well so that they even had them talking, but if you listen you can hear they kinda sound like they have a weird accent and they mumble.

Guys, this is a Ray-ban commercial (viral). And you all fell for it.

Watch the rear side window on the car. That`s the slogan for the new ray ban ads. Posters with that slogan are all over the place in my town.

I think he might have put magnets or sum behind his ears and on the glasses and ...there u go he catches it.
Or it could be real but he must have no life trying to do that all day

Sprink obviously has anger-managment issues. And besides if he actually did any of that stuff, the cops would be after his sorry ass.

This is how it was done:
"Throw the glasses man!"
"Okay."
"CUT!!" Video stops recording
"Okay, put on those glasses i threw at you"
"RECORD!" Video continues

I don`t find the throwing and catching of the sunglasses nearly as impressive as the fact that they got 4 pages solely on people arguing whether or not it is edited. That alone is an achievement in itself.

cool vid. I dislike the fact thought that the very first post is immediately "Photoshopped" and not "wow good useless talent". Just my opinion though.

I just want someone to explain how they do the skateboard launch if fishing string is used. It seems like it would be just as hard to pull the string just enough to get the glasses to land on the skateboard as it would be to launch them onto the guy`s face. maybe I dont understand the concept of the fishing string trick though.

they didn`t have to do all of it backwards, but the car part is backwards for sure

So uh.....if it`s going backwards, then how come the car in the bridge scence is going forwards? And you realize that if it was backwards, they`d have to do all their motions in reverse (like the high-five and walking in the first scene). It is NOT POSSIBLE to do something backwards, like walking, and make it look exactly like you`re doing it forwards.

watch when he throws the sunglasses into the car in slow motion, you can see the guy`s hair flip out well before the sunglasses get to his face. this proves for a fact that the guy throwing them is actually pulling them from the other guys face and they play it in reverse.

"Hey, it COULD be backwards, but its less work if they just edited the vid." Again being a significant member of the industry of photo effects and manipulation as well as video effects and manipulation for at least 5 years, it would take 4 or more months to achieve an effect with that level of fluidity, and require years of industry training to achieve. People think it`s just as easy to edit video as photos but that`s not even remotely true.

You might as well not even be typing on the keyboard at this moment, as what is being said by all the people typing "edited!" is WORSE than random type, like "opgdhdlmkwentrlkt dfkgje jherhjer jh" it`s wrong. Think about that for a sec, you are actually creating lower posting quality than something completly random. Not cool.

Anyway I`m going to have to call PHYSICAL manipulation or extremely unlikely ridiculous skills. Id say there is some one off camera with some fishing line and everything is being played backwa

It`s a very nice video - hats off to the guys who had the patience to do this - it`s well thought out and put to action professionally.
None the less, it is fake - in a good way. They shot the video with a string and I`d say three persons. One having the glasses on - with the camera on him in the essential moment - a guy who had the string going "through" his hands who catched them (tha one who appeared to have thrown them) and one person/maschine/group who actually pulled the string hard and fast enough to get the glasses flying in one straight line.
Then they played it backwards.
They thought the motions out really well, so they` look as if going forward (compare it to the Jack Johnson video - it`s the same method and it works even with mouthing words - if you give it enough time and practice, but is defenitely hard to master). I espescially liked the car - it must have been really difficult to do all this in the right order and making it look so easy.
Congrats

You people just can`t accept the thought that someone can do something cool, so you just go straight and say "Oh, that is fake and lame", get over it. Your life is less than other accept that fact. None of that was fake just a cool trick.

if u pause and play, pixel by pixel, u can tell that some of them weren`t fake, although i see the possibility of a string, u can`t really edit videos. not very easy, unless they got some expensive stuff, u can`t really photoshop videos. or maybe that could explain the horrible quality of the vid

anyway, i wish i could do that in real life

Meepdude sorry to ruin your fun, but this is probably physically impossible. There`s no way to get an object like that to rotate a specific way every time. And let`s say it`s possible for a second, Even if he caught them perfectly from the bridge it would certainly still hurt somewhat. And the car made me realize this is completely fake. It`s not a matter of "some people can do things that you cant," It just isn`t possible.

Btw your last comment was really... REALLY gay.

Holy sh*t guys, it`s clearly fake. Some of them run backwards, some of them he already has the glasses on before the guy throws them (like the bridge one. Notice you don`t see his face until the glasses are on them?)

I can`t even believe you guys think this is real. Honestly, get a brain.

Since his eyes doesn`t seem to show any signs of injury from the hours of painstaking practice, I`m inclined to say it`s been edited.

Hey, it COULD be backwards, but its less work if they just edited the vid. You can attach a string to it, and the other guy can pull the string to catch the glasses in his hand. =P
