Gotta Watch: Real ... or clever fakeouts?

It's Friday and we're hours away from the weekend. You need something fun and funny. We could give you more on Casey Anthony, Newt Gingrich's campaign implosion or airstrikes in Libya. But today, take a break. Our inspiration is a dating video where a woman goes crazy for cats. Is it real or fake? You decide and watch these videos that defy the imagination.

Nothing but net – A college football player has an amazing gift: hitting trick shots from nearly anywhere. He can hit a plate in the air, a basketball net from the stands and even a moving car. It's a skill that literally has open doors for him and it's definitely real.

Gas station ghost – It's a bird. It's plane. It's a ghostly image? One eerie blue image floated around a gas station, catching everyone's attention. Just what was it exactly? Everyone had a different opinion.

Federer's amazing aim – Roger Federer's super-fast serve knocks a bottle off a man's head. What's more amazing is that the man wasn't hurt. But is it real or just an optical illusion?

    Really? Really?? It moves like a bug, it has wings like a bug. Sorry, gas station devotees, your 'ghost' is a bug- out of focus because it's on the lens, but really quite obviously an insect.

    As someone who loves Ghosthunters and shows like it, that was my first reaction. It's definitely a bug on the lens. Only oddity is that it shows up as blue.

      This was at a Marathon brand gas station their electric sign has a large blue back ground. That is where the blue tint of the moth comes from.

    Its always an old Indian burial ground. They must have had A LOT of them – or.... it could be a bug.

    Really? A bug on a camera lens is now a national news story? No wonder our country is going bankrupt. We're wasting time on nonsense instead of current affairs.

    With all the technological capabilities we have today, such as photo shop/cut & paste/editing ect., you can make anything look like something else. In this case I think its a bug too. You have to be careful these days. You cant always believe what you see!
