After the music video of Rob Cantor doing 29 celebrity impressions in one original song went viral, the singer released a 'making of' video explaining his perfect celebrity impressions were all fake. It turns out the man cannot do a single impression, but instead relied on 11 talented impressionists while he lip synced.

The fascinating behind the scenes video shows how the other impressionists were recorded and digitally stitched together to make it seem like Rob was the one doing the perfect celebrity impressions. Like many people in the comments section of the original video predicted, the whole thing was a hoax. However, the amount of clever video editing shows how media can be manipulated and could potentially change the way we see the content we consume.
