I hate to be 'that' guy. But I noticed most all his other videos are about 3D and/or contain VFX.

Sooooo...... :scratchhead:

Or was I being an idiot even thinking it was real to begin with?

Not real. Several reasons, centrifugal force, gravity, surface tension etc.

Hah... check out this comment ... more importantly .. the user name...

Don't know what's going on with that, but I uploaded it on Vimeo. Should take a few hours to process, then I'll post the link.

Best part about your clip being so awesome ... I know there's probably about 100 or more folks out there flooding their kitchen floors right now. And I'm sure there will be a high percentage of them getting grounded by their parents in the process. :thumbsup:

If it's not real it sure fooled me. I got my desk all soaked now but I think I'm close to getting it to work. :D

The second trick, just ain't going to happen, a stream of water is actually gloppy and breaks up into drops, so you'd get more of a Lava Lamp effect in your magic water loop. Oh, and a slight tweak to the gravitational constant of the universe...

Maybe instead of going to the hassle of making it CG he could hitch a ride on the shuttle and film it from orbit. :)

I hear bodies of water form spheres in zero gravity. And fire makes domes.

This guy is a cheat! Seriously, no way this'll work with a regular glass. This guy must know somebody that works in the aerospace industry, 'cause I have a friend, see, who works in the aerospace industry and last week he sneaked out a can of spray that we dicked about with like this. What this guy's done in the video is he's sprayed the inside of the glass with the same stuff before he did the trick. The spray's nanotech based and it coats any surface and makes it hyper-frictional. They were gonna market it as "frictiON" and it would have come with another bottle of liquid called "frictiOFF" that you'd use to remove it, but the FDA tested it and it coats the inside of your mouth and throat and when you breathe in the air sticks to it and you can't breathe so you die in about 4 seconds.



PS - Good work. Evil, but good work.

By the way, I found out the video is not available in Germany because of certain music laws:

"Basically the German music collection society (the German equivalent of the PRS) and YouTube could not reach a deal to allow the broadcast of music in Germany, so any videos with music in them are blocked."

Even though the music I used was royalty free, the video cannot be viewed. (Youtube is aware that my video contains music because I submitted it for revenue sharing.)

All fluids become spheres in zero G. Surface tension and minimal surface area ensure that. Fire does the same but quickly snuffs itself out, due to no convection supplying oxygen to the center of the sphere: i.e. there's no "up".

This is fake alright, but did you know that you can put a piece of paper on a glass full of water, then turn the glass upside down together with paper and let go of the paper, the water will stay in the glass because of atmospheric pressure pushing the paper up. This is real and it was presented by the physicist in a TV show.

No. He's not talking about removing the card that could never work. But inverted with the cardboard in place will stay there without holding it in place.

Wow, this is so cool, they actually blocked it only moments after I uploaded it. They watch our every move. Damn, it was just an insert from the show. Do they have actual people browsing youtube looking for inserts ?

If it was blocked instantly after upload it was spotted by Youtube's automatic computerized Content ID system. If it sticks around for a day, month, year and then is yanked, it's because of an actual person third party notification.

It will tell you in your account and video settings. Either 'content ID and your video is blocked worldwide, in the USA, etc' or 'your video is blocked due to third party notification.

A third party notification counts as a 'strike' a content ID block (usually) does not.
You can see if you have Strikes by going Account Settings>Manage Account>Account Status Copyright.

Three strikes and your account is instantly terminated and all content deleted.

Hey Boris I saw that done on a British tv show. It was a British magician called Paul Zenon, who did it in a pub ( Doing street magic like David Blaine ).

He did it with a pint of beer and a beer mat and to show off did it over a guys head. It worked for a few seconds, but then it all came out and went all over the guy ! Paul was looking scared cos the guy was quite big :)

Yeah, them and ebaum's world are well known for zero original content. But it's not killing me as far as ad revenue goes, since it has like 60,000 views compared to youtube's 1,300,000.

I agree. The simple laws of physics don't apply in this video proving it's a fake. Anything that spins wants to move outward due to force. This video is a fake but if I didn't have a trained eye, I would have been scratching my head thinking this could be possible. I say it's Realflow.
