      I really think if people knew just how umbiqutous green screen, and CGI, use are in the entertainment industry they wouldn’t believe anything they see on the interwebs.

      Scifi and horror are the obvious users, but I don’t think people realize how much those technologies are used for more mundane scenes, or how readily available, and cheap, said technologies are to do these kinds of effects.

      Most exterior shots (of all genres) are filmed in a green studio, because you can control all the variables of the scene, and you don’t need to hassle with shooting permits, etc.

      It really is the Ockham’s Razor answer for the overwhelming majority of these videos.

    Medical conspiracies: Easier to believe (on a certain level) when the hospital you go to doesn’t give a flip about the fact you got hit by a truck, and would rather try to poison you with bogus ‘diabetes’ claims instead……
