    Why does this video look fake?

    Did they use after effects to give it a shaky cam look? I`m not saying he can`t do it, those are intermediate tricks (the 2 handed part is considered advanced), I don`t doubt he did those tricks, but they altered the video and made it look fake it seems. (even the out-of-focus at the end looks fake)

    The skills he learned as a kid have served him very well... very well indeed! Pretty great though.

    Older English men are the best. They have a certain charm that seems to be a part of the national character. Older American men, by contrast, just tend to get taciturn and cranky. (Only the squirrels develop a certain charm.)

    @Batmanners: I`m guessing, but I suspect the video was recorded with one of the new high-end dSLRs, such as those made by Nikon. They record high-quality video through the SLR lens and can create some wonderful depth of field effects. But they lack autofocus and if you aren`t using a tripod, can result in video just like this.
