    Link: Tape Measurer Skills - No one`s sure how he does it, or if it`s even doctored footage, but this guy sure knows how to work a tape measure.

    unless he has a highly modified spring release tape measure, which is unlikely to exist, the tricks he does are quite impossible. with a normal spring system you always have tension pulling the tape in, in the longer distance throws it seems the tape is actually pushing the tape forward. I have seen the sort of spring mechanism required at work mostly in toy cars, the kind that you "rev"up, and maybe that`s what he is using, in which case its quite possible, however in the first scene you see immediate retraction tension.

    I`m not sure IAB is in charge of determining the authenticity of videoed skills. Perhaps you should have done your homework.

    second that cman. To me, it seems like that advent of the internet and viral media must have coincided with the complete demise of talent and skill in all mankind, because as soon as anyone does anything remotely cool, talented, skilful etc....it has people screaming “FAKE” at it immediately.

    "i wish people would stop calling "fake". who CARES if it`s fake? you don`t look smart or intuitive if you point out the fake-ness. you look like a douche. bsides, this is TOTALLY real."

    If saying a dog is a dog is stupid, but saying a cat is a cat is not stupid, then you are a hypocrite.

    Translation: If saying a video is fake is stupid, then saying it`s real is also stupid... you tard.

    i can do that, its easy. The funny part is these guys showing off how well they can goof off while getting paid. We Americans have lost all work ethics and is partly why we can`t grow anymore :/ .... i include myself, i goof off a bit too and get paid. yes i feel guilty after the fact, but hey, why not. :)

    Notice how they all cheer each time when he gets it.

    That means it took him quite a few attempts to get it right, and they just cut out those.

    This is possible but that tape measure has to be modded. The bearing inside has to be loose so the tape is able to fly that far.
