I was recently talking with a friend of mine that still believes that SpaceX is real, and showed him some questionable footage that was clearly CGI. My friend’s rebuttal to the footage I presented was that it was from an unreliable source. With that, I couldn’t help but go back to SpaceX’s own footage from 2013. You honestly expect me to look at this nonsense and believe that is anything but CGI?
The thing that I find hilarious about this isn’t the fact that the video is blatantly CGI from the horses mouth… but instead the comments you will find. Here are just a few of them.
- It’s weird how something about the Grasshopper videos seems really CG. I guess our eyes aren’t used to seeing scifie stuff in real life?
- Its so amazing that it look fake.
- Beautiful! What an amazing piece of video! Hats off to SpaceX and the videographer!
- This is the beginning of history.
And so, to my friend that stepped up and noted that my third part video footage of SpaceX could have been clearly faked, because it was obviously CGI, I call shenanigans. Because, this footage is after all from the horse’s mouth.
But hey, they clearly can’t fake stuff like that, right?
I’m sorry, but SpaceX was CGI in 2013 and they are still CGI in 2018. It’s just that simple.
