Jonathan Livingston Spielberg

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

Pretty sure this one is a shoe-in for next year’s “Best Short Film Shot by a Seagull” Oscar.

Story here.

    I can’t believe it’s taken this long for me to see my first Jonathan Livingston Seagull joke in reference to this.

    There’s a story on yahoo theorizing that this is a viral marketing campaign. http://news.yahoo.com/amazing-seagull-video-marketing-hoax-131057786.html

    If it is, it’s successful!

    It’ll star Steven Seagull.

    Must not have been one of those tasty Nikons.

    How would you fake it? Maybe an R/C helicopter?

    If it is a hoax, it’s exceptionally well done. The fact that the OP included the product name in the title isn’t all that surprising. Plenty of gadgetheads are proud of their gear and proud to name it when it performs well.

    And along the lines of GoPros doing remarkable things… I’m pretty sure this 12,500 foot free fall is also not a hoax: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU-KvtA20v8&feature=player_embedded

    Apparently the same thing happened to a lady in France last year. Also with a GoPro. Quite remarkable. Incredible even.

    Fake. Trained seagull. Dead giveaway: How fast the person supposedly chasing the seagull (across the water?!?) arrives at the camera.

    Always be suspicious if the lady in the video is pretty good looking. As is the case here. Real world it’d be a tubby dude’s camera.
