Is this REAL, or a computer-generated simulation??

Archived from groups: rec.video.desktop (More info?)

his little MPG video clip recently came up in a discussion. We can
NOT decide if it's real, or a computer-generated simulation. Watch it
in slo-mo, for example, and look at the reflections of the cat on top
of the car and in the glass windshield. If it's a simulation, it's
absolutely flawless. Notice the cat's head fall down inside the car.
What do you think?

    Absolutely sick... and a little funny in a "Pulp Fiction" sort of way. Funny
    only because it is obviously a simulation.

    Unless the sunroof had a razor sharp blade on the front of it, there's no
    way it would completely decapitate a cat like that. The furry little thing
    would be dangling by little threads of sinew.

    Morbid... but moderately funny.

    See.. if that were in the states here, people would come unglued!!! The
    Peta people would be screaming!!! You could only get away with that
    in the UK.

    There's also a bird one too. Where the hood flies up and kills the bird.

    Dam funny if you ask me..

    It's definitely faked. Very surreal.

    Just look at how fast the cat slides down the car, not real...
    Also, how do need something like a gouliotine device to separete soft
    tissue like that.

    Looks almost real, but I can't help thinking there ought to be some tail
    movement from the cat.

    If the head is severed suddenly, the body ought to lose its coordination.
    After that cat's head is cut off, it continues to struggle in a meaningful
    fashion. Cats have advanced spinal cord reflexes, but it's still too clean.

    Looks to me that the cat still had it's head while sliding down the car.

    I was thinking before the cut, when the cat was till struggling. Cats usually
    stick their tails up when they're happy, being stroked/expecting food etc.
