Yep, and the white flash is also added in. I think it must be fake.

u/Ishaan863 Sep 07 '22

the post-blast reactions seem fairly real. everything feels real except for the csgo flashbang effect.

either it's just edited and fake, or it's real but someone's edited it a bit (maybe the camera flew out the guys hands in the blast and for a few seconds no one cared about recording it, and someone decided to just cut that bit out for the internet)

u/Plantasaurus Sep 07 '22

Bust expensive camera equipment, break your finger, and cover your upper torso with microabrasions for a few views? I think the video is real, but the tinnitus audio is edited in.

2

u/[deleted] Sep 07 '22 edited Sep 07 '22

as far as breaking camera equipment, absolutely. they make far more in exposure from this than that camera lol. that's a very cheap price to pay for a video with millions of views. that's discount rate distribution.

how do you know the cuts were caused by an explosion? how do you know they're in a desert playing with molotovs and shit, probably drinking - ill hazard to say in that scenario it's not that unlikely someone might hurt themselves through the day lol. for all we know the molotov footage is months old and this guy fell off his dirtbike then passed that footage off for this. lol. none of that proves anything. also, idk if you've ever seen a burns victim, but they usually have burns, not bruises.

it's clearly fake af. the entire moment of the actual explosion is completely hidden by a giant white screen and they hide all the noise with a sound effect. because they don't have the skills to fake those bits. lmao. it's blatantly obvious.

154

u/MarsLander10 Sep 07 '22

They were dropping bigger and bigger Molotovs into the pit, the gas (and its fumes) built up, but not enough oxygen to ignite it all. The last bottle they dropped was significantly larger and also had a larger rag, which may have been enough to pull down oxygen with it which allowed all the other gas to ignite and explode.

u/BeatVids Sep 07 '22

u/saadakhtar Sep 07 '22

The camera got tinnitus

64

u/sims86 Sep 07 '22

He doesn't explain the cut with the edited flash and ringing, but he does say he was thrown back about 10’ and shows the scrapes, broken hand and broken camera. So I’m assuming the camera either shut off with the fall, and he’s stood up, turned it back on, and filmed the reactions. The flash and ringing were added just for some dramatic effect.

u/Durhai Sep 07 '22

That does appear to be the video, but I don't recall the flash bang affect being there.

That YouTube channel seems a little suspect as none of the videos are related to one another. If I had to guess, it appears someone was copying random videos and posting them onto that channel.

Pretty sure not fake. Mines can build up gas over time and they may have lit it, or the explanation at the end of the video (someone else linked below) that most of the other bottles didn't light and gasoline pooled down there until the air fuel mixture was enough to finally light it.

...if there was coal down there they could've started a SERIOUS underground fire. Look up Centralia PA if you don't already know what that is.

All there needs to be down there is enough fire to ignite coal, and if there is any down there, that shit will spread indefinitely, potentially for decades, like In the case of Centralia.

Yeah. We have like 10 or 15 burning in various places around Colorado too (small and underground. You won't actually get to see them usually). They can also self-ignite. So it's kind of impossible to really put them out.

7

u/Anxiety_timmy Sep 07 '22

There’s one in Turkey I believe, and it isn’t too similar tbh. It’s caused because people thought there was oil in that area, except when they started digging they realized it wasn’t oil, it was natural gas. They couldn’t cover it up because the thing was massive, if they left it open the whole area would go boom when someone used a stove. So basically they just decided “eh fuck it fire is cool” and it’s still burning to this day.

22

u/Steeve_Perry Sep 07 '22

The fire may be real, but I think they added all the effects in and the fire never got any higher than what you see before the fade to white

7

u/JoefromOhio Sep 07 '22

Preface this with i am just speculating and not and expert in any of this but i think It’s not necessarily an explosion in the grenade or bomb sense - more akin to a rocket in that they basically had a makeshift thruster turn on with them standing on it - a rapid expansion in a small area with a single out let, he happened to be standing on that outlet so luckily the mass of not superheated air that was in the shaft was expelled at such a rate that it pushed him out of the way of the fireball.

There wasn’t a concussive blast - yes the ringing was definitely added - him getting moved that distance is almost definitely a bit of exaggeration but that’s pretty common when idiots who toss gasoline down a mineshaft describe their experience

2

u/NotAHost Sep 07 '22

If the impact is enough to stop the camera from working, it'd have to have a larger impulse. If it's a 'thrust' effect, the camera should still work. The scene at the end just has all the added imperfections that you use to cover up poor visual effects, on top of the poor visual effects.

I was coming at this from a completely different angle when I watched it. First of all, if this is really part of a stack that connects to a mine, then you can geo-locate these guys relatively simply. Second of all, this promotes arson which is a crime. This is a promotion of arson in the fact that the effects in the video were fabricated to illicit a response from the viewers which is implied to be "wow, that was crazy!" which this really was not.

This was stupid and you should go pick that trash up, kids.
