Stephen Whiting Stephen Whiting Monday, April 22, 2013 7:42:09 PM Yeah, I'm calling fake on this.
Mike Ormond Mike Ormond Monday, April 22, 2013 7:57:25 PM it's not fake. it's that kind of reflection off the lens. as the camera moves so does the design of what looks like a fence. So sorry, its not fake people.
