All in a day’s work:
The start of the video was definitely an act…. Not really sure what he was trying to say, but it sounded like there was a “pig in the tree?”. Regardless of the initial staging, all his body weight was definitely off the ground before that branch gloriously snapped sending him to the ground directly onto his elbow by the look of it.
Definitely not shopped. I can verify it’s authenticity by the pixels and splinters.
