WATCH: Incredible Video Shows Cheating Wife’s Lover Jumping From Window — But Is It Real?

An elaborate viral video of Brazilian lovers apparently caught in the act has racked up over 1 million views since it was posted on YouTube Saturday. But could this too-perfectly captured farcical scene possibly be real?

In the video, titled “Amante pulando da janela no centro de São Paulo” (or “Lover jumping from the window in the center of São Paulo”), shows what appears to be a husband and wife arguing on a balcony as a small crowd forms below. The camera then pans over to a window in the same apartment where a man, clad only in his underwear, starts repelling down the side of the building using a sheet. Very quickly, a fire truck shows up and conveniently offers him a mattress to land on and then make his escape.

The New York Daily News suggests the video may be a hoax perpetrated as promotion for a television show. What do you think? Is there any way this actually happened?
