No, the Eagle Didn’t Steal the Baby
WC doesn’t want to shock anyone, but sometimes you really shouldn’t believe things you see on the Intertubes. Seriously, just because it’s on the ‘Net doesn’t mean it’s true. A grain of salt, please. Occam’s Razor, thoroughly applied. A skeptical eye. Critical judgment. Sheesh.
The following video is not true. It was a class project to create a fake video.
Again, this is a fake. It was created as a class project by Normand Archambault, Loïc Mireault and Félix Marquis-Poulin, students at Centre NAD, in the production simulation workshop class as a part of the Bachelors degree curriculum in 3D Animation and Digital Design. If YouTube’s counter is to be believed, it has been viewed more than 39 million times. Cobequid Wildlife Rehab Center in Montreal had to post an explanation that eagles do not carry off small children.
WC assumes that Mssrs. Archambault et al. got an “A” for their work.
