The ‘Live’ Giant Robot Battle Was Edited and ‘Filmed Over a Number of Days’

More than 22,000 people tuned into the livestream, a YouTube video has since garnered roughly 900,000 views, and the fight has been blogged by dozens of publications. Many of the top comments on YouTube suggest that the video is “FAKE,” and Motherboard has confirmed with the fight’s promoters that the livestream itself was not live and little of the production could be considered “real” in the traditional sense of how fights are usually fought and adjudicated. – Samantha Cole, MOTHERBOARD http://ift.tt/2gPxnFa
