Have you guys seen these? There like amazing sports highlights. Are these real? I know the baseball one is (where the guy runs through the fence). But what about that guy jumping over that opened bridge? It looks fake.

And the surfing one...and the Michael Vick one..,

are they all real? some of them?

Most of the Powerade commercials are created from real footage, but edited to make them seem real. The baseball one is real, but not as "amazing" as the others. You will notice the surfer looks kind of a black blob if examined closely, and the other use obvious tricks such as panning off of the main object (ie: the football), then panned back onto the object and the edited "amazing" throw becomes nearly endless.

Computer can do some very amazing things, humans can't.

The one where the girl jumps over the open bridge isn't as impressive as the surfer.

If you watch closely they follow the girl running down the street and then she goes behind a van prompting a classic texas switch where another girl starts running out the other side. She is attached to some crane because when she lands on the other side she falls but is caught by the crane which has of course been digitally removed.
