    Nice, but fake of course.

    This effect is easily done with After Effects: The guy from videocopilot.net shows how to make this effect in one of his tutorials. Very well made though.

    okay you haters who just can`t wait to be the first to cry "fake, photoshopped, edited!"

    I bet you guys are the life of the party. Try to get in the spirit of things and just LAUGH. Do you look at a woman`s boobs and go "fake" ... Even if they are do you care? Just get with the feeling!

    I think the `product` they were `testing` was too fake to be believed in the first place.
    That makes the `accident` seem even fakier!

    Her reaction makes it fake.

    Anyone who sees someone get hit that hard doesn`t think "cut!", which is what she seemed to have been saying. And that helmet looked too normal to have a HUD. A fighter pilot`s helmet has a hud, and eyeball tracking, to let the pilot lock-on just by looking at the target, and it`s fairly bulky and wouldn`t run on batteries, as the one in this video, would be.

    The glass doesn`t all disappear. There are a few still visible pieces and the ones that disappeared just stopped reflecting light that we can see when they laid flat on the road.

    Yeah it`s fake. In fact it`s that same foam ice cream truck that hit that black guy dancing in the street. Just repainted it. Hired some German speaking actors and threw in a few sound effects ~wallah.

    Neiltwo2, it`s called a shadow. Plus the camera has to take time to adjust the amount of light it takes in, making it seem like the lines disappear for a second.

    i guess none of you ride bikes...

    man, that brought back some memories of me slamming my gsxr 600 into the back of a bmw at 50. scariest thing trying to brake knowing you won`t in time and bracing to be paralysed for life.

    At least he didn`t have time to think that.
