I'd been had.
Ever see one of those videos or pictures going around that appear "too unreal" or "unbelieveable"? In a lot of cases there are just that, not real. The latest trickery that I was taken by was the picture of the Royal Wedding compared to the animated Cinderella Disney movie clips. I have to admit, the photo did have me going for awhile. "Cinderella and Royal Wedding Comparison". Very clever, very thought-provoking and entertaining: http://www.snopes.com/photos/people/cinderella.asp
Here's a link to a video that I found on snopes.com Top 25. It's portrayed as a baseball news video, called, "Evan Longoria's Crazy Bare Hand Catch", preventing the baseball from hitting the female reporters head. Turns out it was a Gillette commercial: http://www.snopes.com/photos/advertisements/longoria.asp
Here's an "Amazing Ball Girl Catch", that is actually a Gatorade Commercial. This one looked real. I'd been had: http://www.snopes.com/photos/advertisements/ballgirl.asp
Makes one wonder if this one's real or not: "Ball bashes blonde babe's bonce". A Sky Sport's production. I sent this to snopes.com today to get it checked out:
Have a great day, and remember to check it out if it seems unbelievable!
