Camera Drops From Plane, Lands in Pig Pen. Real or Viral Stunt?


As is always the case with amazing videos like this one uploaded by YouTube user Mia Munselle, a debate rages in comments as to its validity.

Munselle claims she found the camera -- which everyone (without any facts to back up the assumption) assumes is a GoPro -- 8 months after the video was shot.

The camera appears to have been dropped from a skydiving plane. It begins to spin faster and faster to the point where the spinning exceeds the camera's frame rate which is why the picture appears to freeze.

The best part of the video is the ending. Once it lands in the pig pen, one curious resident decides to try and eat the thing.

All manner of debate is raging as to the ability of the camera to survive such a fall, the angle from which it landed, how it managed to land facing up, why the pig keeps trying to eat what clearly isn't food and the fact the video comes from a one-video YouTube account. We think this is a job for MythBusters.
