    Two things... There`s practically no splash. Also he speeds up after he leaves the ramp.

    Maybe there wasn`t a lot of water in the pool?

    "I believe it just becuase this is WAY to much work for a shop"

    yeah if you don`t know how to do it maybe that`d be the conclusion, but all you really need is a decent 3d animation and cam tracking. The guy slides down the ramp and disappears, this is where the 3d model is cut in and then the splash might be a particle system. Easy peasy to fake. Just the trajectory of the guy gives it away. Fun clip though :)

    what happened to simple common sense and logic? it seems to have become lost ever since the internet appeared...

    lets think it through ok? there are 2 people with 2 buckets full of water/oil/semen, anyone ever heard of friction? friction is what would make you NOT slide, ok? you following me? the more water/oil/semen there is on the surface of that slide would dictate how much you slide, less water less sliding, more water more sliding, ok? Lets return to the 2 guys emptying their buckets, looks like a controlled environment? exact timing, location, liquid flow? No. That means his distance will vary from attempt to attempt, unless there is a pile of corpses behind the camera they could not have calculated the distance where he was going to land.

    the landing quite vertically in his kiddie pool, yet the splash is upward? that makes it a really bad shop.

    Simple explanation - If it were real, he would be dead. That inflatable pool wouldn`t stop him from plowing into the ground. At the speed shown his body would probably tear through it or at least move it a good distance, but the pool doesn`t move an inch in the video. My vote is bad shop.

    It would be possible to either calculate the landing position or confirm it by experimentation, but I wouldn`t trust the margin of error enough to use a pool that small.

    He was fairly lateral and pulled his legs up at the end so legs breaking isn`t that likely.
    I was going to say that the chances he broke something else was pretty high but it`s possible that the water did slow him enough, because he was going so fast laterally it would be the length of the pool not necessarily the depth that had more effect. People have survived worse.

    I would have assumed that kind of impact would do more damage to the pool though.

    As for the targeting there does appear to be a lot of math and simulating to get it right on try one on that site, though it`s not English so I can`t tell you what it was about. XP

    Fake or not it`s still awesome.

    That pool in only two or three feet deep... Thus if you calculate the speed of his entry and multiply it by the height of when he landed... he would have broken his back and anything else that hit the bottom of the pool first. In other words... he would have seriously injured himself, or just died...

    If I remember correctly, a bullet will only travel about three feet into water before it loses most of its velocity. The water depth should be fine here. It`s the other variables, such as the friction created as the body travels down the slide, that makes me wonder how they could predict a safe distance for the pool.

    The video is a fake. The ride is too smooth for such a hilly surface, the sound effect of the splash sounds too close to the camera, the splash would have a lot more sideways force and the pool would have split open.
