I was forwarded the NFL Fantasy Files “Pick Me” promotion which depicts some players preforming seemingly impossible drills.
After watching this I initially thought real, just well rehearsed; then switched to thinking fakes.
Unlike most “faked” videos that have gone viral, I cannot find any conclusive confirmation. Typically there is an article somewhere like Adweek or Ad Age that credit some agency for the creation.
Any references I find are very vague and seem to lean create your own opinion… which has led me to a final opinion (for now).
I think that the individual acts themselves are real, however I do not think that any one drill was performed without cuts and with out some creative post production editing.
That said, because the promotion is for Fantasy Football and named “Fantasy Files” the players, NFL and talented production company do not have a need to “come clean” on this one as the very nature of what they are promoting doesn’t warrant it.
