I've just gone through that vid frame by frame and it sure looks real to me, the camera even gets shot my electrical interference which you can see if you slow it right down.

Damn lucky! Surprised

In respect to the link you posted JP, that is amazing! Striking the windscreen? Incredible mate.

Damn lucky indeed, but if you look at the individual frames you can see a spark right where the guys hand is when he's tinkering on his bike - he did get hit by the looks, hence the pain in his hand afterwards.

Holy cherry! cherry
