Legit in the sense that it is a very good piece of video editing.

It`s definitely real.

That website links to the Audi site, must be pure coincidence. Not a case of viral marketing at ALL.

Why is it so hard for people to fake how a normal person would hold a camera? They always do that bullpoo zoom and the slow swaying back and forth "kinda getting the subject only half in frame OPPS!LOL"

So drating stupid, I could do it 1000x better.

It`s fake. The sound effects and the shaking of the video camera are fake.

The buildings have a fake feeling to them and the zoom is way too fast and accurate.

That being said; There was a micro strom that occured near where I live and there was over 10 lightnings per seconds at one moment. It didn`t lasted very long but it was scary. I wanted to record it but by the time I took the camera in my hands it was already over. I keep my camera next to me ever since.

I live in the southeastern US and I`ve seen storms this intense. I remember one in particular when I was 12 that rolled in so fast I came within 20 or 30 feet of getting struck running back to the house. It was so close I could smell it, like someone striking a hundred matches at once.

Uh...When a person is holding a camera in their hands without the benefit of a tripod it tends to shake. Also, when someone zooms out, that shaking becomes much more evident. Now, I`m not claiming it to be legit, I`m just saying that claiming something`s fake based on a shaking camera is kind of...out there. Like you`re reaching for any reason to claim something is fake.

You guys never seen lightning like that? Where do you live? Here in the south the weather is very volatile and we get lightning even worse than that. An hour later the sun is shining.

Even if it is fake (which I think it might be) I would still kill for weather like that where I live. lol

I didnt think it was fake until the bridge. The camera isnt supposed to shake like that, even when someone is scared pooless by lightning that close.
*spoiler*
Also, it`s a viral ad for Audi electric cars.

It`s weird how one can just tell something is fake right away (even before the finale). There are subtle nuances that just get noticed.

And if you`re still thinking it`s real, check the link in the vid.

When the bridge was hit, it just looks too fake, so I shall deem it as such.

And I dunno, but the thunder and lightning is too in sync. Even when that close and that often, the delay is there... And why are there cymbals smashing when it hits the top of the skyscraper?

It would have been better if they hadn`t given the camera to the Parkinson`s patient. This is why I had to quit watching Lost.

I agree. The vid was probably legit though. I don`t see anything out of the ordinary in it.

Fake as sh*t. You want a real lightning storm? Go to Tampa, Florida. Or better yet, go to Equatorial Africa for intense lightning storms.

How about checking the url shown at the end to see if it`s legit? Cuz it`s NOT!
Actually, what really tipped me off was that last bolt. If you`re that close the flash is blueish not pure white.

Its a viral marketing campaign created by audi. Just type in electricityuntamed.com It says it at the end of the video. Static shock, runaway lawnmower. Theyre all fake.

It doesn`t look real, mainly because the camera is far too good quality

looks fake to me. When it strikes that close,(the bridge) its a lot louder, scares the hell out of everyone, and you can see flames and poo coming off of it. Plus it looks all special effectsy
