What looked like a real video of a toddler being snatched by a golden eagle, was actually the work of a class studying 3D animation at Montreal based NAD school. The baby is real, but the eagle swooping down to snatch him away was down with computer graphics animation (CGI).With over five million views, it was one of the most watched videos of the  week, and even though we now know it’s a fake, it’s still heart stopping to watch.

Give the class an “A’” for the anxiety the video brought out in some people.
