Is this genuine…..

What do you think?

  1. The kid’s “devil horns” hand gesture at the end is brilliantly done but too arch and adult to be real.

  2. To quote my rather cynical 7 year old son: “That is not real. He didn’t actually do that. Babies are rubbish at guitar. Babies are rubbish at EVERYTHING!”

    This bears all the hallmarks of a viral video using the tried and tested cool baby/cute animal as the subject and it works because we are suckers for both and the fact that we are essentially promoting it here attests to the power of cute viral videos. Congratulations to the agency behind this – you got us (again!)

  3. it looks fake. yet the baby gives it a tag near the end and it does not come off. i think the beard may be real despite it’s appearance.

  4. Too perfect, it has to be fake as are most of videos like this I’m sure. I hope Prof Wiseman will give us the answer!

  5. I agree with the chorus, even a baby Mozart or Hendrix would be in the shadow of this prodigy.
    BTW Wasn’t that a boring TV progamme they were watching.

  6. I genuinely hope you’re being paid a lot to post crappy “viral” ads.

    Also, any ads that use babies or women to try and manipulate me, I find off putting. A great way to make your product look unattractive is to show it next to a beautiful model. A great way to make your product look like it is for idiots is to show it with a happy baby.

  7. Surely the question should be “how was this done?” CGI, obviously, but how. Is the baby entirely CGI? If not, where are the joins? Actually, looking at the head, it looks a wee bit pasted in, so fully CGI baby is my guess.

  8. The kid is completely CGI. Notice how the guy holds up the end of the guitar to make it look like the kid is holding it.

  9. A baby wouldn’t have the reach (hand or arm stretch) necessary for the strings being depressed – even adults with small hands have trouble reaching! – and also is VERY unlikely to have the strength needed to completely depress the strings so there is a clean sound, not the buzzing you get when you have compress a string. (Never owned an infant but have played guitar.) It’s so faked. I agree with others, it’s got to be a viral ad for that ‘boring TV programme’ they were watching!
