A YouTube video showing a guy recording a police chase in Inglewood, Calif., on his TV has raised skeptical responses after the guy shifted his camera from TV action to his window as the chase passed in front of his house.
But in spite of widespread skepticism, the video has gone viral.
Watch the video and note the moment the guy filming the chase on TV switches filming from the TV screen to his window as the chase passes in front of his home.The guy cries: "h**y s**t! in astonishment at the transition from TV action to real-life.
According to Gadailynews, commenting:
"Many are skeptical of the clip, pointing to how the car is still moving straight on the TV screen when it purportedly rounds the corner live in real time. Others note the headlights appear on in the TV but off in the window, and the improbability that the filmer would have been recording at that exact moment."
However, a YouTube user may have explained the seeming anomalies:
Brian Boutilier: "The TV isn't real time there is a delay in the moment of time it takes from the news helicopter filming, then sending its footage to the station which then has to broadcast it. By the time you see the chase on your TV it could be 10-30 seconds behind, what is actually live."
YouTube user Districtdirt protests the skepticism:
"I don't get why everyone is having so much trouble believing this is real.I live in LA and this chase really did happen last night, it was all over the news."
