Is This Viral Video Real or Fake?

It's only one minute and six seconds long. In those 66 seconds, a lot happens. This plot is all over the place and moving constantly.

Allegedly, the events take place in Russia. This immediately rings true, but I'm at a loss to explain why I think that. I don't think that it's just the Russian text in the tweet where I first saw the sequence.

Whether this is real or just a slice of security camera footage, I can't wait to see the sequel, preferably directed by Michael Bay

What do you think? Is this video real or staged?




For the record, Miss C beat you to this over on her site with a post from https://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/comments/r3o8jw/i_honestly_cant_explain_this/ A lot of redditors are saying fake. Except they can't explain the cat. If you watch the pole as the sign falls you'll see what appears to be someone's arm move through the bottom of the frame so the three weren't exactly alone. Based on that I'm thinking this was staged. Also the reddit consensus for location is Egypt.

If the zoom at the end was original to the video, I think it's almost certainly staged (though I'm not sure why the cameraman found it desirable anyway). The cat was likely an unexpected volunteer participant.
