yeah.. i’m pretty sure that’s fake. it looks like one of those commercials where they’re like, “yeah isn’t this ironic? fat people can’t do anything cool, don’t be fat!” i’m pretty sure it’s a fat suit.
There’s no way a fat suit could have the flexibility to do the type of gymnastics this guy is doing. Couple that with the folds where the arms connect to the shoulders being correct (physiologically speaking), and the fact that the gymnasts neck, face, head and fingers are appropriate to the overall size of his torso, arms and legs, and …
Yeah, no. I’m gonna say there’s no way it’s a fat suit.
I know a lot of people on You Tube replying to this think it’s a fake, but I don’t. YMMV, but that’s my view.
I agree it was probably originally intended to make fun of fat people, too. I mean, I think it’s cool just on the face of it, but the Nutcracker music makes it look like the concept is “the idea that fat people can be graceful is laughable.” But I do kind of enjoy putting all that plus the fat suit suspicion out of my head and just watching a fat person (either actually or apparently) engaging in really cool athletic feats.
