I keep seeing that Powerade commercial where the camera’s looking out the window at a hurricane-force storm, with gigantic waves pounding the beach…suddenly, out of nowhere comes a surfer, who disappears as the wave crashes down on top of him, only to miraculously reappear seconds later, still on his board. All accompanied by a news reporter-sounding narrator.
I guess the narration could be an overdub for dramatic effect, but the footage itself looks pretty damn real. Anyone got the straight dope on this? Was this stunt filmed specifically for the commercial, or was it some random idiot who got caught on tape?
