Q: Is This Video A Fake? A: Yes, But Who Cares?

First spotted on SI.com’s CAMPUS CLICKS today, here’s an amazing-looking video of a ball girl supposedly making a circus catch at a minor league game (forget ballgirl, more like Batgirl):

Amazing Ball Girl Catch

The first time you see the video, you can’t believe your eyes. But then try watching the clip a few more times, everything is too perfect. Especially the camera angle - for a minor league game. I worked about 10,000 Triple-A games as a broadcaster myself, so I knew something was fishy from the get-go.

Oh yeah, the source of the video, and the clip itself, after the jump.


Turns out the vid is from a Gatorade commercial that I *SHOCK* missed. Maybe never watching TV has something to do with it.
