Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:

The video shared online claims to show an unfortunate accident where a Crocodile (or alligator) bites off the head of a Bungee jumper! The video is a hoax thankfully.

Video Claim

The video claiming to show a Bungee jumper's head bitten off by a Crocodile has been circulating via email and social networking & video sharing sites for several years. The video shows a Bungee jumper leaping from a high platform as two sports commentators report the action. As he jumps and reaches the top of the water, it appears like a crocodile lunges at him in what is shown as a terrible bungee jumping accident. The uncategorized YouTube video was uploaded in Aug 2007 and does not have any clear description of the incident whereabouts.

Fact

What looks like a Bungee jumping accident wherein the jumper's head is bitten off by the Crocodile is in fact a TV commercial for Foster's, an iconic Australian beer, which aired in 2003. As you can see the complete commercial in second video, it ends by showing the product along with a voice-over saying, "New Foster's Hit Tap...Don't lose your head". The crocodile shot was added to the Bungee jump footage via special effects. Back then, the advertisement created a controversy that it was made in a bad taste, however, Fosters said the Beer ad was designed in a 'Aussie-style humor' to promote a new system that gives drinkers a constant head on their pint. Like it happens often online, removing the final part of advertisement, the video has been shared out of context.
