    What’s missing is a picture of an entire family all sitting on the imaginary bike.

    Yeah, no one really wears helmets in China. Maybe 1 out of 100 at best.

    Has anyone seen Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon? There are no bicycles folks!!! Just some photos of the Chinese hovering about in their daily lives got leaked and now they magically have a “floating picture series”! They even added fake but decent looking bicycle shadows for authenticity. Don’t believe the lies!!! Open your eyes!!! Betty White 2012

    I hate to spoil this … but this is really easy to do.  (It is creative, but it is not the first person to do this either.  I have seen simular stuff done in Korea 3 years ago where the girl was flying)  Anyways, it is done with 2 pictures.  Take one picture with the bike and riders; and when the bike has left the spot, take another picture with a clean shot of the road.  After the two pictures, use the 2nd picture to paint over the bike.
