The Crossbar Challenge


A furious war rages behind your computer screen. A war between honest viral video makers who simply happen to be at the right place at the right time, and those that use their video altering skills to create fraudulent viral lookalikes. The Charlatans!

Indeed, the interweb is a minefield and we tread that ground for you everyday. But, from time to time, even we can't tell if a video is fake or real. Like this one.

What follows is footage of a rotund, aging footballer, who's ability to hit the crossbar is either frightening or too good to be true.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments...
