Helicopter Fishing, the New Rage!

Something about this video clip is fishy to me, but it’s pretty neat regardless. Take one part man in helicopter, add one part marlin in the ocean, have man jump from helicopter and catch said marlin with barehands, bake for one hour.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The only real question I have is how they had the camera in the water ready to get the man get the marlin. Did the camera guy jump out of the helicopter too or is this like on a reality show when they show someone getting a phonecall and the other person happens to have a camera crew there filming when the phone rings? Whatevs, there has to be an easier way to catch fish though

    burning helicpoter fuel to kill fish isn’t the most environmentally friendly activity but it sure is awesome.

    wait. they don’t even catch the marlin? this is more like helicopter fish wrestling, which i personally believe has a better ring to it.

    every time i think human beings have reached the apex of inanity, someone shows me a video of a grown man tackling a huge fish.

    i feel like maybe those are two different events, meaning they shot a guy jumping out of a helicopter into the ocean, then cut it together with a guy jumping off of a boat onto the marlin.

    i have a hard time believing that he jumped perfectly out of a helicopter onto a moving marlin. something is certainly “fishy” about this…

    A video like this is put together with careful planning and editing. Clips of the helicopter flying from both inside and outside the helicopter itself, clips of the dude jumping from the helicopter are also different cameras. This sure looks real to me, and I dont see how this could have been faked and look this authentic.

    Look man, obviously if you think this is real you don’t know anything about Marlin.

    They don’t sit there, EVER, and especially with a massive helicopter making a ruckus above.

    Has anyone ever seen how Marlin swim? If so, then you can tell this is OBVIOUSLY fake.

    WHY DIDN’T THEY SHOW THE MAN FALLING ONTO THE FISH? They showed before he jumped, and after. Also another OBVIOUS sign its fake… They had a camera guy there, SITTING NEXT TO THE MARLIN WAITING! C’MON…. TOTALLY FAKE! Marlin don’t sit still and wait for fish to swim by, they swim faster than 40mph. They FIGHT HARD, and yet this one went with the flow and didn’t even get scared. I’m sorry, knowing what I know, this shit is beyond bs and it’s hysterical people think its real!

    Nice editting though, a lot of morons with no common sense will believe this video as it looks real.

    Still think it’s real? Looks like David Blaine pulling out his heart on TV, that looked real more real than this, yet it was fake. hahaha
