If you don't know the story, watch it here.

When you're watching it, stop at :19 seconds.

Look at the shadows on the Japanese men. Specifically, look at their necks.

The man on the left (as you're looking at it) seems to have the sun coming from his upper right, hence the shadow on his neck is onto his left shoulder.
The man on the right, seems to have the sun coming from HIS upper left, hence the shadow on his neck onto his right shoulder.



Now look at this photo snapshot and notice the shadows on the ground. The man on the left and the terrorist's shadows both coincide with the sun from the upper right sky (from the men's perspective) yet the man on the rights shadow is completely opposite.



In either case, I believe the shadows should all be the exact same angle. It only seems to make sense.
While I'm not a photo expert, something seems fishy.

Possible photoshop?

I can tell from the pixels that it is shooped.

I would guess green screen if anything.

(I did not watch the video, just looking at the photos.)

Wonder if Japan will pay?

I'm just really glad you weren't making a very tasteless PS request.

So...they didn't shoot the video outside, but in a studio. Big deal.

The Japanese are taking it seriously. They lost two citizens in the region a year or so ago, and those pictures seem to be them. Of course, they might be long dead, and still no solid evidence it's legit, however.

I'm not a conspiracy person, so it's not that I think it's all fake.
It just seems like the photo isn't 100% legit.

I was just curious if anybody else agrees.
