When I see a post for a video that's supposed to show astounding feats of whatever, I always try first to visualize what kinds of amazing things I might see, and it's usually never as amazing as my brainvideo, so lots of times I just do the imagining and don't watch. But I did here because of the fakery accusations (I love good fakery) and I don't know if it is or isn't, but it didn't amaze me atall. I was expecting the tape to pluck wallets from pockets and fetch unspilled martinis and scratch backs fifteen feet away, kind of thing.

@tmkvamme: It is funny how this is wildfiring across the interwebs and appearing on some relatively well known blogs. There is no mention of the fact that, while interesting to watch, it is indeed completely faked. One can view the rest of the virals that they released and realize it is all a bit tongue in cheek.

I don't want to be one of those people that call everything on the internet fake, but this is.

Something about it struck me as weird when I first saw it. If you look close you can see the tape measure go right through his hand at 0:21.

The tricks they do with the tape measure may not be real, but the tricks they play on our eyes are pretty impressive.
