Normally, fake viral videos are sucky and hamfisted, and give me that same groany feeling I get when my mom talks about Farmville.  But this fake viral video for Activision’s Tony Hawk: Ride is an exception (first video below).  It starts out believable: a bulldog playing with the skateboard peripheral, as they have been known to do (second video).  Then it gets wicked absurd. 

Here’s a cool litmus test to try out.  Show this video to someone, and if they say, “That’s fake!” like they’ve solved a grand mystery, Ric Flair chop them in the chest and say, “Now figure out why I did that, Sherlock.”

When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
