Fake Or Not? The Tape Measure Ninja Video


This video’s been hitting the Internets like crazy over the past few weeks, up to already over 900,000 views in less than a month on YouTube. It shows a construction worker getting all sorts of crazy with his trusty tape measure on various objects at the site. Take a look:

If that’s a legit representation of his tape measure throwing ability, then by all means, the video deserves that close to a million views it’s getting. But something’s a bit … off about a lot of the movement in the video. I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is – maybe it’s that first swish-pan, or the fact that there’s no way he could have pulled off changing the radio station on the boom box – but the video just doesn’t seem to be taking place in our reality, but instead some kind of Matrix world where gravity is nonexistent and anything is possible.

In any case, my question for you guys in the comments: Is this video fake or not?

    My dad worked construction for many years. He was too busy to get this guys mad skills but I think it is real. You’d be amazed what you can do with one of those things. They can also get sharp on the edges to so this guy might really be able to ninja your ass and cut you when you turn your back.
