Nice camera work or computer generated crap. They're getting so good at this stuff that I think Dwight Clark actually missed "The Catch".
I heard an interview with him on NFL radio, and he made it sound like he could really do it. I didn't get the impression that they used any kind of trickery - just exceptional amounts of kickery
I saw the interview that onnestabe refers to over the weekend on NFL Network. Rackers answered questions about the video shoot and there were no obvious signs that anything funny had occurred. If so, he has a really good poker face. I'm 99% sure that it was legit.
