This can’t be real… can it?
A video has gone viral of a camera that allegedly fell out of an airplane, spiraled through the sky and landed in a pig pen.
It was recording throughout its adventure, which concluded with a curious farm animal taking a few sniffs of the lens and trying to eat the unexpected piece of equipment.
It seems impossible to believe this actually happened. But it also seems impossible to believe anyone would think to stage such ridiculous random footage.Camera Falls from Plane, Into Pig Pen

Molly Schuyler went to WORK Friday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
By DEVOURING an eye-popping 363 chicken wings in a HALF HOUR, the 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother of four set a new record at Wing Bowl 22.
The previous record was held by Takeru Kobayashi, who ate 337 in 2012.
Schuyler, from Omaha, Neb., didn’t exactly cruise to the crown, narrowly edging Patrick Bertoletti, whose 356 wings mark the second most consumed.
