Camera Falls From Plane, Lands In Pigpen, Almost Gets Eaten (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We're always skeptical of videos that appear too good to be true (we're looking at you, Jimmy Kimmel), and this one has all the makings of a potential viral hoax.

But it's still pretty good.

The video, posted on YouTube by a user with no other history there, appears to show a GoPro camera falling from an airplane and landing in a pigpen. Moments later, a curious pig comes along and tries to figure out if the fallen object is edible.

Enjoy the ultra-closeup views of the pig's tongue.

"Camera falls from a sky diving airplane and lands on my property in my pig pen," the user, Mia Munselle, writes in the description. "I found the camera 8 months later and viewed this video."

She also linked to the video on her Twitter page, mentioning the brand of the camera.

Several users on reddit speculate that the funky split-frame effect near the end is caused by the frame rate of the camera almost (but not quite) synching up with the speed of the camera's spin as it fell.

So, we've got to ask...
