The 10th was total BS....just watch the head pin. I know I`m not the first, but I add my call to the BS train....

Those kids probably work at the bowling alley. The lanes he is bowling on are turned off so there is probably a third person in the back who is there just in case he falls short, in which case he or she could knock any remaining pins down real fast in an attempt to make it look legit.

yeah fake, i`d say they set up wires on the ground at the front of the pins, and then just pulled them when he missed, not real.

Pretty cool. It`s true a couple look like they could be fake. But more to the point, good bowlers usually bowl lots of strikes in a game, and sometimes bowl perfect games. What the video DOESN`T show is how many times he`s tried and failed!

Faked, Looks like they are tied together or someone has a string to knock them down if he doesn`t It looks like he works there, he`s certainly good. and pimptastical There are bays behind them so could can get to that "heavy machinery" or fixes jams, and If he does work there he could certainly have somebody back there to stage this, Cleaver though.

lol @ Lauraly.

1st- you know next to nothing about me or my standards.
2nd- go on living your life unimpressed by anything.
3rd- I can make conclusion about you I want. Behaviorism is not a hard science and 2 instances of observation are plenty enough.
4th- for once, you`re right. I don`t like snotty, condescending know-it-alls who have accomplished nothing worthwhile themselves, yet see it fit to sit around criticizing others who have.
5th- feel anything you want. I have 0 respect for your feelings. Hell, it might even cheer me up on a bad day that someone out there I care nothing about is wasting their emotional capacity on me.
6th- I do have another hobby - not wasting any more time on the kind of persons described above.

OMG!!Who actually believes this??? Have you people ever been bowling?! The pin machine isn`t even on. There is a bar that comes down to push the pins back into the machine and you don`t see one move the entire time. The guys mention being employed at the alley at the end of the video which means they have the time and access to figure out a way to fake it. Its obviously rigged it doesn`t take a genius to see that.

No, TeHrussian; a perfect game in bowling is not enough. A perfect series (three perfect games in a row)? Now that`s a different matter, and is something that I would be impressed by. Even if your standards are more realistic, they`re pretty low. Mine are within the realm of possibility; they`re just harder to achieve.

If you can remember the arguement without it being personal, then I can remember approximately how long it`s been without needing to "track" it. Also, two like situations does not a conclusion make. Any science teacher would tell you to do more research. For whatever reason you just don`t like me, and therefore you jump at any opportunity to make me sound like an non-nice individual. It`s pathetic really. Find a new hobby; I`m starting to pity you.

Total fake, if you don`t think it is you are blind.

At :44 the pin on the left starts to go before the middle pins are knocked down.

At :54 a pin falls a little too late.

At 1:06 two magic pins fall down.

At 1:38 a pin again magically falls, but it looks like you can see someone pushing it from the top.

Finally at 1:51 you ACTUALLY see something from the top pushing it down.

bowling 300 is impressive, tricking nubs on teh internetz into believing you bowled 300 isn`t.

For me the most obvious bit is at 1:40. There`s a final pin that falls down after all the others, and when everything else is long gone and it falls down really forcefully, like someone hit it, or it was being pulled.....

by the way, the last pin that falls over at 1:05 if you look real close you can see the pin that fell over right before it is still moving plus it looks like the head pin was a little jarred by the ball... basically it was rocking a little and got a little nudge from the other pin.. case closed

ok now that is a big deal!! seriousely, i work at a bowling alley, they would not let you tie strings around the pins.... ive seen some crazy strikes where they fall over out of now where.. its nuts..

and what makes it so hard is the different people throw the ball different ways, making different lanes `dry out` in different places, meaning the ball wears a dry spot in the oil on the lane, making the ball react differently depending on the dry spots on the lane...

MAJOR PROPS to this kid

lol Lauraly, so by your standards perfect is not enough? I guess to impress you he had to have the ball jump over in another lane and knock down some more pins, or something? Yeah, your standards are higher then. Mine are just more realistic.

And no, I`m not bent out of shape. It`s called remembering, and I`m not the one tracking how long it`s been.

The only reason I brought it up is to form a syllogism. You know, 2 premises and the conclusion that you`re a "hater"?

samsonite, how did he do it then? Until I find a logical solution for this I cant confirm real or fake. For the 1:05 thing it could have been bad video quality and maybe a pin did knock it down but we just didnt see it. I still cant confirm

Everything about this screams fake. A couple of frames where the pins mysteriously fall too late. The guys reaction spells it all. Nobody would be that nonchalant about bowling so well.

i agree, who really cares if its fake or not? even if it is someone saying `hey look i can do something special` and theyre really cheating, this is the internet. is it really that important?
and before i say anything else, im half asleep, so i apologize in advance for any stupidity.
my question is, has anyone here ever been behind the machines in a bowling alley?
isnt there room for a person back there? someone has to load the pins, dont they?
unless im thinking of the `old days` (which i wasnt even alive for) or maybe our local bowling alley is/was unbelievably outdated.
and even if no one has to load the machines, there has to be room for someone to get back there for maintenance, thats why theres an aisle to walk down against the wall ending with a door.
either way, a string could be tied to each separate pin and whichever ones stayed up, pull that string in whichever direction to try to make the fall look real?
but i guess separate strings could get pulled to

There are no strings there is a pin jockey back there knocking them down. If anybody here was a bowler or knew anything about bowling they would know this is not real. 12 lanes 12 different balls 12 different lane conditions and all house balls. Pete Weber couldn`t do that much less some punk kid that doesnt know how to speak. Plus the kid throws a straight ball there is no way to have enough consistency with plastic balls throwing a straight ball.

TeHrussian; I`m the hater? You`re still bent out of shape over an argument that happened two weeks ago. Get over yourself.

Bowling a perfect game is not that big of a deal, like I said, and as I showed with my Google source it happens all the time. I`m sorry that I don`t find it thrilling that someone put a video of it on the Internet trying to look awesome. Yes, it takes skill, and no, I can`t do it, I suck at bowling, but I`ve seen it enough to not be very impressed. There are plenty of things that I find remarkable, but just because I`ve got higher standards than you doesn`t mean I`m a "hater."

Seems faked. Mainly because some of the pins on a couple of the strikes seem to fall down after everything has settled. Whenever I`ve went bowling, you can get a sense IF the pin MIGHT fall down, and it involves seeing movement of some kind, be it the pins or the force of the ball coming back up and hitting the remaining pins. Never has I seen a pin just fall down on its own accord that long after the other pins have settled and the ball obviously gone.

This is definatly fake. The guy can bowl good but he was hurrying too much on his approach on some of them and he wouldnt have made it no matter what. also, if you notice the pins do not reset which means the machines are off, why are they off? because somebody is hiding in the back knocking them over. on the 3rd to last one no pins were spinning and the pin just randomly fell over. this is definatly a fake.

and schooler obviously people care because if someone says they can do something and they have to cheat to do it... it isnt doing that something that is special. Thats like steroids in baseball... sure barry can say he hit over 755 homeruns but could he have done it without cheating? No. It`s an acomplishment that people would like to be seen done legitimately

Are you people serious? have you ever bowled or watched bowling? The pins do not fall like they were for him, there werent strings but he didnt do that. He missed the head pin on that one like 2 pins to the left... theres no way that was real, those pins would not have gone down. Not to mention when he gets the "pin reaction" as he calls it, you can clearly see the other pins spinning not around the pin that magically just falls down. Seriously go watch that video again its brutally clear he didnt really do that.Too many of those pins that randomly fell down were too suspicious... and the people that bowl 300s dont just walk up throw a ball and go to the next, it takes more concentration to hit that many strikes like that and with the oil patterns ifferent on each lane it wouldnt have happened. Go bowl please and you will see.

Fake. If you know anything about bowling, some of those pins would not have come down. Another guy would have easily stood in the maintenance area behind the pins and walked down, knocking down the pins left up with an air gun.

i think its staged, why did he use 12 different lanes to do it?... it was probably setup in a way he could knock them down, the machines dont seem to be working, so another employee, like his friend could be back there with a black sleeve and a black glove knocking them down not impossible

its faked,, ill take my debunking award now

primetimekin, I wouldn`t worry about what lauraly says. She`s a hater. First the guy who serves his country is a douche bag, now bowling a perfect game is appearently too easy. I have to wonder what she does with her time that`s so admirable...

Anyway, I think a string could`ve done it if it had enough slack on it. That would explain the delay as other pins rolled away from it.

I think he has skills, but wanted a little insurance policy just in case.

why does anyone care if its fake?
hes wearing a Bowling Uniform so hes obviously good/works there...
it can easily be fake or real...
someone who works at a bowling alley would have no problem figuring out a bunch of ways to fake something like this anyway.
however, it doesnt mean that it can not be real, perhaps the machine not being turned on makes it easier, but its not cheating.

FAKE! Fourth frame, the pins start to fall before the ball gets there. Plus several other times the last pin falls all on its own when all the rest of the pins are already down and stopped moving. But it was fun to watch.

The one at 1:05 might have actually been hit by that other pin, it fell in the right direction and everything, but the one at 1:50 fell from the top down (instead of having its bottom knocked out from underneath it), much too quickly, and in the wrong direction. It had to have been attached to one of the other pins.

Another addition to the pin setters being off..

Why used 12 different house balls? Oh.. yeah.. because if the pin setter is off so it the ball return. If you watch as he`s moving, you`ll see none of the balls return.

lauraly, its been officially recorded twice.

I have found no evidence online saying that it is fake.
Son is not gangsta its new yorkin

A string would not explain 1:05 because that pin would have fallen around the same time as the others

There was no one to push that pin

I cant confirm whether its fake or not but string or another employee wont be a reason for this

I wouldn`t find it too much more interesting if it was real though, sadly.

None of the pin setters reset after he through his "strikes", so it would definitely be plausible that they tied strings around the pins and after the video was done go untie them. And they`re were a couple of shots that there was no way they would`ve all fallen down. It`s a fake...

yeah, there HAS to be somebody behind the lane knocking down the pins after he shoots. That wouldn`t be that hard if you knew an employee there. If anyone looks at 1:05 and tells me this is really, I`d be shocked

"Why can you people not accept a video as it is? What bowling alley lets you tie strings around the pins?
Wouldn`t the tied up pins go back up into the machine and get caught on something, possibly ruining it?

Cmon at least give us a half decent thought on how this could be faked. I don`t see any issues at all on that lane. The pins will normally tend to move/spin around on the ground when they`re knocked down, resulting in one hitting that last pin and knocking it down. "

pimptastical - You are so right. Let`s not forget to take into account the draft of air that is left from the ball traveling down the lane. It is highly possible that a free standing pin that is neither hit by the ball nor a pin will fall because of a strong wind.

You are such a naive kid. I know fake when I see it, unfortunately, you don`t
