    It's a fake...

    I know, but it's still a pretty neat effect. Wish I could do it!

    That can't be real. At that velocity he would have busted through the side of that swimming pool.

    I think it was an optical illusion using two guys. The one that jumped is still stuck in the side of the hill and the other splashed water and stood up when he heard the thud.

    Fake.

    Great video and effect though!

    It is fake. Part of a European Microsoft commercial.

    It's so fake you can tell without being a computer special effects wiz or knowing that the commercial is a fake through the public announcement.

    Watch the "guy" as he goes along on the slip n slide. See that he doesn't bounce over the bumps? Evidence of CGG.

    Look at the sky behind the paddle pool. Notice that it "suddenly" gets a lot cloudy (or is it smoke?). This is evidence of the camera not being on for long periods.

    It's fun but fake.
