This is an amazing video. Amazing.
Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays catches a baseball barehanded while a reporter interviewed him. He perhaps literally saved her life.
The video appeared on YouTube on May 6 and has grabbed more than 1 million views.
But here’s the thing: It might be a fake. The Deadspin
blog has said “there’s no way” it’s legitimate.
makes the case:
“The evidence: Longoria has appeared in ads for the brand as a ‘Gillette Young Gun,’ a Gillette logo is prominent in the video, and another seemingly off-the-cuff video, the famous ‘Roger Federer Trickshot,’ also seemed to be partially staged (and was published by Gillette).”
A Gillette rep told Mashable
that the clip is not an ad. “Evan Longoria is a Golden Glove
third baseman and this catch speaks for itself,” the rep told Mashable
