A Hollywood FX expert has reviewed the hotly debated "Sweden UFO" footage with powerful video editing tools and says the video is not faked.
The unidentified technician stops short of confirming the flying saucer is an actual unidentified flying object, but observes that if it is phony, "it's the best fake ever" posted to YouTube.
The expert cloaks his voice and is probably a little gun-shy to be using his skills and equipment to investigate a paranormal topic. But one look at his editing software, the brilliantly sharpened original footage and his obvious command of the technology is enough to turn any skeptic into a true believer.
Referring to "chroma keys" and "motion tracking," the expert gets a little worked up by the end of the analysis, throwing out some unnecessary profanity to untrained commenters slamming the original video.
But, if anything, it shows the passion put into the effort and makes a very strong argument that, whatever the UFO is, it's clearly not a hoax.
