Do you also see how far he moves, look at the placement of his feet. It looks like he jogs 15 feet in 2 steps.

I can't remember who said it, but the head is not what stabilizes your vision, it is your eyeballs! Your eyes are very good at tracking a single point, no matter where your head moves.

This really can't be contested anymore, it's been proven to be a very excellent fake. A CGI expert stabilized the video, and even the people running back towards the camera were superimposed!

That's all you said honestly.

Calm down and see what I'm saying. You still have to push/pull your arms while keeping a planking position--working against gravity. He keeps a *virtually perfect* planking position with no body flex or movement. I have no idea what his physical capabilities are in general, but that's an incredibly difficult thing to do without a harness/support holding a significant amount of your weight and still flap your arms up and down--regardless of whether you're moving wiimotes or whole wings.

...And now, the jig is up. Smeets, whose real name is Floris Kaayk, has come clean on Dutch television, admitting that his videos and accompanying blog were nothing more than what he calls "online storytelling." His flying video attracted more than 3 million views on YouTube.
"I’m actually a filmmaker and animator. I am now eight months working on an experiment about online media,” Kaayk told the press, referring to the fact that he began documenting the fake flying machine project on his blog last summer.
Kaayk also said the hoax was not, in fact, commercially sponsored...
