As you probably should already know by now, not everything you see and read on Youtube is real. One recent example was a video showing a new Lexus IS F being crushed, and which many websites rushed to adopt the poster’s unfounded claims that it was destroyed for street racing by California authorities. Today, we stumbled upon two more clips, one allegedly showing a man cutting off a parking meter with a saw after receiving a ticket, and another with an Abrams tank destroying an Aston Martin coupe.
In the first case, after posting the story, the Huffington Post called the NYPD to see if the 16th Precinct seen on the police car exists – it doesn’t, therefore proving it’s a staged clip. The second video with the tank rolling onto an Aston Martin has been making the internet rounds today, but we discovered the original clip from 2008 where poster noted that it was a college project made with the help of a real camera and 3D/modeling programs.
