another GoPro ad which has gone viral. Their advertising department deserves credit for getting their product out there. This is FAKE.

Do you know it's fake or are you one of these people who calls everything fake?

Watch the video. Of the three areas highlighted in red, the tail is the most noticeable difference. Pull up two different pages with the videos and put them side by side if you can and observe the tail at 1:06 and 1:38.

But alas, the joke is on all of us. It doesn't matter whether it's real or not. It's all about the Benjamins and he's reeling in plenty of them in the same way that record companies cashed in after backmasking became a craze on account of the Beatles.

I figured this one was fake as well. I mean come on, what are the odds? Plus, he was swimming way slow. Plus his reaction when he got on the rocks was clearly an act.

Kind of like the fake news articles and the links to news articles that are really sponsored. Everyone wants their piece of the internet pie. I make it a point to try to avoid sites that posts scam videos or fake articles masquerading as genuine.
