Watched it a couple times, it is likely a fake, Look what happens to a tree when it is struck by lightning. The umbrella was not even touched.

#2 Not necessarily. There are plenty of lightning strike survivors.

i think it's fake since the guy didn't even have burned/ripped clothing.
And #10, Zeus is a wuss compared to Thor ( and i mean the little grey dude)
looked more like the guy was drunk...

Why should this be fake? There are plenty of lightning survivors, some of them got hit even more than once. Yes, there are also fatalities, the rules of electric current are simple, If you don't burn or your heart didn't stop working you are lucky one. And you are even more lucky when your blood and internal organs doesn't decay in near future.

They say getting struck by lightning gives you cancer. Hope this guy survives.

The bloke wasn't struck at all, it was his umbrella.

If he's wearing rubber-soled shoes, it will hit the umbrella tip, go down through the metal shaft, and continue its journey through the damp air below.

he was soaking wet! 100% conductive, so the lightening didn't find any resistance, it went straight through to the ground! i think rain saved his life! if he was dry, the lightening would encounter a resistance as his body is not 100% conductive, some of it will turn into heat and burn him!

Most people have no idea how difficult it would be to create a fake video like this. It's not simple photoshop. Therefore I think this is legit.

its fake.
filming this boring stuff in the first place makes no sense. an old man crossing the street?

and when he gets "struck", they leave him there? really? they are at least two people behind the camera. and they take like 30 seconds to get closer and watch out for the old man?


and #20 but some people do this for a living. what you see here is really no big deal. maybe its real, it just feels wrong in so many ways. and its certainly not worth it to rewatch it 10 times and get single frames to take a closer look.

If not fake, how come there is no steam cumming out of his clothes. From what I know there should be plenty of smoke!

If not fake, I am happy for the guy as it seem like he is OK. :)

There are a number of factors that make me think it's fake.
1. Why are they filming that particular guy?
2. The strike didn't seem nearly as loud as it should have been from that distance.
3. There's no scorch marks anywhere. You'd think lightning might leave some scorching behind.
But I'm no expert either. So it could be real.
