    No. And that kid’s fingers look really weird and a little creepy…

  2. The fingering looks unreal, and the game logo looks too prominent. I think it’s a viral.

  3. Matt Whitby says:

    I agree. It’s an advert.

  4. Martin James Dowds says:

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

  5. Laura says:

    It can’t be real… it’s an amazing fake… Is it a commercial?

  6. cghera says:

    No way to be real,

  7. Enrique says:

    There’s not a movement in the child that is proper of a baby that age. Obviously fake.

  8. bigdoggy says:

    That’s two questions, and it’s fake.

    Even the laughter in the video is fake.

    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!)

    And I don’t think anybody saw the gorilla in the background, did they? ;-p

    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.

  13. Susan says:

    Something’s wrong with finger movement.Too much control for digits for a baby that little.

    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!

  15. Why is this up for debate? Is Bart Simpson real?

  16. Lazy T says:

    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.

    One answer, and one answer only: No

  18. Russ Ingram says:

    I think it is about as real as this:

  19. Gus Snarp says:

    Certainly not.

  20. 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.

    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.

  22. Anonymous says:

    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.

  23. Rebecca says:

    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!

  24. Martha says:

    You’re all wrong, it’s real. I know because I’m the baby in the video

  25. Henry says:

    If that creepy dancing baby on Ally MacBeal only knew what he was starting …

  26. Anonymous says:

    Not to mention that electric guitar is not plugged in to anything
