    The key to these shots and whether they are fake is usually the shadows, and this one looks like it's real enough.

    The discolouration on the right side is in fact a wrap over the scaffold of the building while it undergoes stonework renovation underneath.

    It would have been more realistic if something was airborne.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    The dude across the street on the bike (in front of the bus on the left) seems to be looking at the guy that just hit the pole as does the person in the green top directly in front of the fountain. The person in front of the bus on the right (blue pants white top) appears to be pointing at the cyclist doing the face plant on the post too. The Lexus banner is written in another language so its prob another country. Germany?

    Because Germany is so well known for Freds riding full suspension MTBs through the city.

    and what's with the yellow halo around the head of the person across the street in front of the fountain?

    Bike seems to have only one leg.

    Thats why the word "Germany" has a "?" behind it, because it MAY be Germany.
    and the "halo" kinda looks more like a hat all this talk about X-Mas and the birth of Jesus has people seeing halos
