I thought this was fake until I saw the end.

    I still think this is fake.

    They were filming a parkour adventure and the lead guy got very injured.

    On the fake bandwagon. Why would the thief wait at the end for the guy chasing him to stand and approach before he makes the jump. He does this to be in frame for the next shot.

    I agree with Reptile. The jump onto a rail and the somersault off the shipping container are dead giveaways.

    Notice the mattress prestaged . Yup fake and they got hurt.

    Not enough yelling should have been a dead give away. Also who the f leaves their cellphone in their unlocked car and walks away from it.

    My phone is in my pocket if I step out. No exceptions. And the doors get locked if I can't touch the car in three or four steps.

    My only doubt about it being staged is that after the kid crashes into the shipping container the video shows a brief moment of the video'r and he is missing one sneaker.

    Wouldn't a real thief just take the phone and run away as fast as possible instead of playing parkour afterwards? [rofl]

    It may have been staged, but the gravity was real.

    The "robbery" was staged but that injury looked real...you can see his feet slip when he was expecting to get traction. Probably wet from the puddle on top of the container.

    Fake circumstances.
    Wet shoes + gravity = real f-up.

    Seriously, I think the lead guy's shoes slipped as he jumped which almost won him a Darwin award.

    Oh look here is the "thief" waking up on the ground, and he just happens to have a body cam too. It wasn't even a stunt gone wrong he's completely fine.

    Ahh here it is. The after vid on the "thief's" channel. So he got a little hurt. He broke 2 teeth.

    That looked pretty painful for sure. Lucky he didn't break his face.

    I am not in any way saying the video was not staged, but in your video of the thief waking up, he clearly wakes up in the front of a red container. In the original video he jumps to the side of a grey container.

    In your second video, he wakes up on the grass in between a container and a building with bricks on the wall. In the original video, there is no building, it apoears it is a paved ground and pethaps a fence.

    I think the after videos are fake. Still not to say the original video is not staged and went wrong

    That isn't a building it's a wall. Pause at 24 sec. You can see green pipes on the left, grey pipes on the right and a grey wall blocking you from seeing anything above his waist. Then continue watching and you'll see the other guy walk over the green pipes to get to him. Once he flips over the camera you can see the same layout you saw at 24 sec. Green pipes grey pipes and the wall all visible at the same time. The bricks are the bottom of the wall and just aren't visible from the top of the container since he is looking down at the wall.

    Just the odds of one parkour expert stealing a phone from
    another parkour expert are astronomical.

    On another note that jump onto the rail was unreal!
    How does one practice something like that?
    I’m surprised either one of those dudes had any
    teeth left for the video after becoming so good
    at their craft.

    Unbelievable athletes. Not anything I'd want to see my own kids try. And you'd have to have a screw loose to try some of that sh*t. But it sure is impressive to watch.
