Landing approach. The plane is shaky. It gets worse.
There’s a video going viral showing a spectacular landing approach: Watching it one must assume something bad is going to happen. The aircraft gets ever more shaky.
And then it happens: The momentum gets big enough that the plane turns upside down. It does a whole barrel roll, but right before hitting the ground, it stabilizes again. An impressive video with a happy ending?
Many users are unsure if that video is fake. But YES! It’s a professional high-quality forgery.
The video has been produced by a company called MeniThings. It describes itself as an fully equipped production company. It claims to create original animations and work together with director Aristomenis Tsirbas with his live action work including movies, TV spots and music videos.
MeniThings had been founded 2000. For the 2005 film ‚Battle for Terra‘ the company developed an animation device for Snoot entertainment.
