Real or Fake? Skiing Ostrich

Posted By: The Ski Channel on July 11, 2011 12:46 pm

The skiing ostrich video has resurfaced! I got a great laugh when I first watched it and an even better laugh the second time. But it still makes me think, is this real? Watch it yourself below.

As much as I would like to think that this video is real, it is hard to believe. There is no way that an ostrich can ski that well. It is carving up the mountain, busting out airs in the pipe and hitting the rails. There is no way this is real. 

But it looks real. It’s impossible that it’s a person in a ostrich costume because ostrich knees bend reverse to ours. Plus look at how skinny the legs are. If it is not a person dressed up then what could it be? Maybe it is just some amazing green screen work. 

 

My favorite parts in the video is when the ostrich is riding up the chair lift kicking its legs like every kid does when they are excited. I also love the ending when the bird is hanging out in a large group of people like they are all best friends. 
I want this video to be real so bad, but I don’t think it is.

FAKE
