Wow that's incredible. I don't see how they could fake something like that.

I'll have to say it's real, that's definitely filmed in Thailand, we have plenty of those painting elephants. (and I would know since I'm from Thailand -_-) I've been to one of these painting sessions, they usually auction off the paintings afterwards.

I've been thinking so long about this and my conclusion: It's real. There are a gazillion "painting elephant" videos on yourtube + tourist reports claiming it's real. Some of the videos show angles that wouldn't even be possible with the best CGI/arm-in-fake-trunk trickery. Although I wouldn't be surprised if I read news about how the elephant video fooled thousands of people on youtube... I don't know.

I've seen painting elephants before on the news, definitely real. They paint of the own volition too apparently, but what I've seen before was never a "picture," but more just random colors on canvas. I wonder if the elephant decided to paint an elephant, or if it was trained to?

The video is NOT fake, the painting made on the video IS fake. Happy now?
