The saying that you can't always believe what you see on the Internet continues to ring true. We reported on a video in which a skateboarder violently smashes the windshield of an orange McLaren, and apparently it was all staged.

Jalopnik reported today that the people who uploaded the video came clean about the whole thing being made up. They say the windshield was already smashed and going to be replaced, so the owners, who run an exotic-car-rental company in Denver, decided to have some fun. (Note that the smash is heard but not seen in the video.) You can check out Jalopnik for the full story. So we've been fooled, but on the plus side, that skateboarding kid is safe and sound – and not in debt.
