Awsome fall by the bestman but fake
The fall alone tells me this wasn't faked. If they were going to fake it, you'd have the best man fall "into" the bride to knock her off, not fall flat on his face and not as hard as he did.

As for standing close to the edge, I've filmed enough weddings that I've seen people do some things I wouldn't recommend .. but that doesn't stop them from doing it.

I vote for not faked - if you stop and start the footage continually he appears to slip on some petals and you can hear the face plant as he hits the platform.

I don't think its fake, the Bestman's foot slips of the step as he started to walk towards the B&Groom.

Oh snap! The Russian judge only gave them a 6.5!

What I wouldn't give to see a second angle of that from behind so you can see the drop to the pool. Granted, it's more dramatic the way it is since you don't know what's behind them until you hear the splash, but I'd still love to see their entry into the pool.

The more I watch it, the more I'm wondering if it's a fake.

Not Fake. Go frame by frame in higher resolution, you can easily see the BM slip than falling flat on the side of his face. Officiant tries to grab him, Bride gets pushed, and goes down with the Officiant. Than both BM & G try to grab Bride & Officiant. And the reaction from everyone was pretty genuine.

You do get to see these types of structures, where B&G have their own setup.

There's a higher resolution version? I'm not seeing the link. Is it just me?

Well I hope you brought your lunch box because you've just been schooled! For the record, I think the video is NOT fake but the b-ball trash talk is.

AFV actually doesn't allow submissions from companies or videographers, only from the bride or groom. I found out with my blooper clip.
