Oh and I forgot to say, Gadget, it doesn`t snow CONSTANTLY in New York this time of year! That`s not possible. And this video is from April. Doesn`t snow in April, now does it?

How could it be fake? And how could you not know how they did it? There are a lot of stupid people on here.

*sight* Don`t you guys realize losers like Gadget need attention on the internet because they get none in real life so they do thinks like post 30 times in a row or call out "FAKE!" like the morons they are.

This was a very creative way to take time away from another person`s life. It was cool, because my life sucks anyway.

I don`t know why, but that was strangely dramatic...and sad. I dunno, maybe it was the music/soundtrack.

Guys, don`t make jokes about 9/11 yet...don`t you remember that it takes 22.3 years for something to be funny!?

I like that he was wise enough to not throw it really hard out the window. You could easily lose your balance and go with the plane. I was thinking, "Crap, I hope he doesn`t throw that too hard and fall..."

Of course, that would have been a whole different video.

Oh come on,this has to be fake.Look at all the twirlies and stuff it does.At the beginning and the end it was probably actual footage but the rest didn`t even seem real at all.

we don`t get that much snow anymore. it`s a good thing, because it gets all dirty and slippery. anyway, paper airplanes have such short life spans. this one had the longest of all paper airplanes i`ve seen.

Well since I find this super cool, I had to see it again and yes, I did notice a man with some sort of cardboard box. He was holding it beside its head, it was not his head. Although he was acting just like it was covering his head without eye holes. Man! Dude really seemed lost.

Oh c`mon! THAT WAS COOL! Totally f***in` awesome! This gave me quite an urge to try that. How can you not wanna try that after seeing that?! It would suck though on a windy day. But on a calm one, I have every reason to believe that`s real. I really feel like trying that for the sheer coolness, and also to find all you cynicals even more funny and stupid.

The antisipation was quite climatic at the begining, and the middle, and the end.

I thought it was pretty cool, wonder how many takes they needed to get it to go in pretty circles.

That`s kind of a neat idea, throwing a paper airplane from that high. If I lived there I would do that all day, it would confuse the hell out of people.

If you watch the car after the camera starts zooming out, it`s trying to parallel park in the no-park zone. It wasn`t swerving. The driver has poor parallel parking skills.

I wasn`t expecting much, but that was a good flight, and from such a height! lol rhymez.

Also, how in the hell could throwing a paper aeroplane out a window be fake, and why would anyone fake it?!? Damn cynical people.

That car wasn`t swerving btw.

The Indians who originally inhabited Manhattan actually made airplanes out of bark, leather and spirit feathers. But they didn`t really fly too well, and were usually smoked instead.
True story.

I thought it was a let down. Maybe I`m just not artsy enough to understand it, but I just didn`t see what was so big about a paper airplane. I thought that something besides it hitting the ground would happen.

Nescient: It could easily be fake!
I meant, do you REALLY believe that was New York in the background?! Silly.
The paper plane was also an obvious fake. It was totally being led by a string!

It was on a ferry and i threw it and it flew straight back at us and hit someone in the face.

"does anybody know why gadget can`t fit his four comments into a single comment?

I have your answer: he`s too retarded to know he can post all of that in one or two posts, OR he`s just a moron who is trying to up his post count with useless spam.

Take your pick.

I thought this was going to be some cutesy indie video thing. But that was relatively interesting, I guess. And gadget, I thought the exact same thing. "OH NO ANOTHER TERRORIST ATTACK! Oh... wait... no, it`s just a paper airlane."
