Evan Longoria's Fake One Handed Catch Goes Viral Again

Evan Longoria's Fake One Handed Catch Goes Viral Again

A few years ago there was a video of baseball player Evan Longoria seemingly saving a reporter’s life by catching a ball with his bare hand.

The video has now gone viral again and was trending on Facebook throughout the weekend, but it was actually part of a Gillette commercial shoot and is supposedly totally fake, according to Snopes.

“I shot the actual Gillette commercial for like six or seven hours that day and I’ve heard a few things about that. But that footage of me catching the ball there literally took two minutes to shoot on a handheld camera,” Evan said. “It’s crazy. That’s how people become famous on YouTube. You put up a video that goes viral and before you know it, over a million people have seen it.”
