    Recently, I cam across this video on the forum.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSPa00kFtuk

    Anybody else figure it could have been motion tracked and edited? Notice he was able to blank out the certain numbers in his account. Who's not to say he didn't edit other things to.

    Personally, I think it would be a great idea to fabricate some sort of video of this sort to help sell an internet marketing coaching program or to drive people to your site to buy a product of some sort. I think it's to help promote his 404 Defender product that's linked to the page.

    What do you guys think? Fake or not?

    I followed his link but the video didn't load for some reason. So i checked the source, once you mentioned this, found where the stream was coming from, and watched it. Sorry, foolishness on my part, comaparco.. and no it's not my webpage lol.

    I didn't know about the javascript page edit trick. It seems to be alot simpler than editing the video and tracking the motion to cover it with fake numbers. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll do more research next time before I open my mouth.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned about the foot-in-mouth syndrome. I'm still doing it every now and then myself, and I've been here for over a year.

    If you didn't make mistakes, or act foolishly occassionally, you wouldn't be human.
