Flying Birdman Video Was Hoax


Congratulations to the doubters:

Not only did Jarno Smeets not actually fly like a bird, his name isn’t even Jarno Smeets. It’s actually Floris Kaayk, a Dutch CGI artist and filmmaker who told a Dutch TV show today that the “Human Bird Wing” project was all part of a documentary he’s making on Internet hoaxes.

Suspicion about the video, which has racked up nearly 3 million views on YouTube in under a week, began almost immediately after it went live last weekend.

    Um, duh. I believe we all went through a phrase, and really took the truth to heart, that people’s muscles were simply not powerful enough and our bodies were too heavy ever to fly with appendages attached to our arms like wings.
