imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

First Ford created the commercial below (feed and emails readers - it's after the jump).

Then some "fans" created the video below, sparking a rash of embeds and comments (going viral).

Following the rash of speculation over how this "fan clip" was accomplished, two follow up behind the scenes videos were published (below).

Call this insider skepticism, but does anyone out there really believe a couple of guys went out and got a crane in an effort to create their own version of the Ford video?  Something is missing here, ahem hem

My skepticism aside, if this really was fan imitation then hats off to Ford's creative agency on inspiring a viral hit!
