Amazing Chase Scene Involving Child May Have Used Special Effects

Amazing Chase Scene Involving Child May Have Used Special Effects

Residents were understandably alarmed when footage surfaced on the web of a young child running from what appears to be an all-out attack straight out of a Hollywood action movie.

If you were ready to jump into action to defend this poor, little warmly dressed human from an onslaught of attacks from an unknown super villain, you weren't alone. Reports came in from all over about that able adults were gathering together hoping to rescue the precious pink parkour prodigy.

Experts put on their skeptic hats though and began uncovering several similarities to the weapons being used to the tactics found in a number of popular video games involving horizontal running. Forensic specialists also cite the lack of shadows from the supposed crane and proper infrastructure needed for instant vertical crushing columns. There is even a gaggle of weapon dealers pointing out that the unearthing laser cannon is at least five years away from field tests.

After careful analysis and origin theories, it is believed this is an actual video shot by a dad, with special video effects added in post-production. While this may be an unreleased filter or lens being tested out in the wild, my gut tells me this may have involved a skilled artist with a powerful mainframe at his or her disposal.

What do you think?

I can't decide whether this article is written tongue-firmly--in-cheek. I do hope so - because it's blindingly obvious that SFX have been added in post!
