Real Or Fake?

•,Tony Manfred
This video of French wingsuit flier purportedly landing on a lake in Italy without a parachute is making the rounds today.

In it, Raphael Dumont supposedly climbs a mountain, jumps off it, glides over the lake, and then skims along the water to stop himself without a parachute.

A bunch of people are calling it a fake. The reasons:

The video of the landing is awkwardly edited, and Dumont isn't traveling as fast as he should be. It was posted by World of Wingman, a men's grooming company. There are no other wingsuit videos online with "Raphael Dumont."
We're thinking it's a viral video, not the real deal. The footage of the initial flight looks authentic, but the landing is super sketchy.
