The short video above is both refreshing and disturbing. It’s also probably fake.
Refreshing: It’s always great to see kids get outside and find inventive new ways to entertain themselves.
Disturbing: Everything else. I mean, a young girl shuts her brother inside a rubber container and violently rolls him down the stairs, all while a grownup stands by and giddily films the event.
Fake: Who closes the lid? No one, yet it securely snaps shut just before launch. There’s also a pretty clear jumpcut right after the container lands and just before the kid gets out.
If for some reason this isn’t fake, it’s a miracle little Clarky Kent comes away from the experience without a scratch (and with a big ‘ol grin on his face). This is the kind of thing you can only get away with when your little brother is invincible.
