Captain Disillusion Explains the Secret Behind Viral Tape Measure Tricks

Captain Disillusion, the finest bullshit detector on YouTube, explains why a viral video featuring construction workers perfectly throwing their tape measures to incredible effect… is all fake.

Watching the original, you might catch on that this is all fake, but how they did it is what the Captain exposes in lengthy detail.


Just as with a great magic trick, even when you know it’s fake, watching the explanation is never boring.

On a personal note, if you’re not supporting Captain Disillusion’s work, you should. He’s one of the best.
