On a Dutch TV show named, with utter Dutchness, De Wereld Draait Door, the man previously known as Jarno Smeets--of the Human Bird Wing video, in which he flies under mostly his own power--confessed to faking the whole thing. Dude's name isn't even Jarno Smeets! It's Floris Kaayk, and he's a "CGI artist" with degrees in animation. Apparently the video was part of a documentary, the subject of which is unclear (but could totally be "how to fool the internet with an obviously fake video"). [via @mpoppeland @TEDchris]
