    • I'm posting this as a reply to this post so it's at the top. If you read more of the comments you will understand what I am talking about.

      Come on people! Television/DVD/video is approx. 30 frames per second. 103 seconds would be 3090 images. 8 years @ 1 pic per day would be 2918 images (365*8-2, two leap years dumb ass flamers). If it was a full 30 frames per second for 8 years the video would be 97.26666666666667 seconds long. If he never missed a day taking his picture it would be 28.33009708737864 frames per second, and some uglyish hungover/sick frames, unless he's a saint, and super healthy (I have no desire to look at each image to see.). I opened this file in Adobe Premiere, cut off the intro, and outro. The video ended up being 93.12 seconds long(1min 33.12 seconds) at 29.97fps it would end up being 2790.8064 frames obviously that's not possible since you can't have .8064 frames(whole numbers only), so I'll round up to 2791 images (frames) give or take ?. So this theoretically means he missed 127 days. I am unsure how this video was processed along the way, but let's say for the sake of discussion that my figures are fairly accurate that would mean that he missed approximately 1.322916666666667 days per month over the duration of the project and that sounds pretty reasonable. This dude was serious about this. As far as his face moving/not moving comments, give me a break. Just because you would never be able to do this, let alone turn pictures into video doesn't mean someone else couldn't. Don't be jerks. This guy did a great job, and this will be something he will have for the rest of his life, and it will be an enjoyable thing for his friends and family for years to come.

      Huxi: You were real cloes there with your equations, you almost got the number of images correct with the simple calculation of dividing the number of days in 8 years (though you were off by two days because you didn't account for leap years.) by 103 seconds. But you also forgot to account for the intro/outro seconds that don't count. But then you completely derailed when you estimated 1 pic per week, as the video would only be 13.88054721388055 seconds long. But good try with your flame when you thought you had the guy dominated.

      Anyway, I seriously doubt that this is a fake, and I also doubt there are many posts that are of any intellectual value here. So my advice to most of you, no, all of you:

      Don't vote, your screwing it all up. It's obvious there is practically no one who can comprehend the unintended consequences of their actions. Just because you can't see it (yet) doesn't mean it's not there. Oh, and if I want to be saved from myself I'll ask.

      Thanks Everyone, especially J K Keller.

      • Oh, and as far as the hair argument goes. I clicked frame by frame for a while in a few different parts of the video, no way I'm looking at them all, but you're wrong (from what I saw). His hair pretty much changes a lot day to day. Some days it's bed head, some days combed, some days spiked, and some days not. I never saw a abnormal jump in length. Prove me wrong.

        I'm telling you if I ever feel the need to get pissed off, all I have to do is find an article that has comments, or pick up a paper, read the editorials and viola!

        Have a swell day :)

        Dustin

        • I think you mean "voila" at the end there, not the viola, a stringed instrument similar to a violin. =)

      • Loved your post.. I can tell you theres at least one girl sitting at home on her laptop, wishing her math geek would find her. lol, tc & thanks.

      • very interesting, thx for doin the math for us, but this is very cool, i know someone who personally did this over 3 years, this is accurate, ill minded people shouldn't speak about this being fake its obviously not morons. Apparently some of u have no conception of time.

      • you're so wrong mate. You're all up on your pedestal but your wrong!!!!

        "8 years @ 1 pic per day would be 2918 images (365*8-2, two leap years dumb ass flamers"

        Why would you subtract two days to account for the two leap years??? I've been reassured by my bloody cat that a leap year has an extra day, not a day less.

        So, you condescending retard, come down from your pedestal and correct your grade 1 calculations which you stuffed up

        • Okay, so there is a 4 day difference which still doesn't disprove his theory. One simple miscalculation doesn't make his math first grade. Whether leap year adds or takes a day away does not even coincide with math. That's just basic knowledge. I concur that he was wrong but still does not deteriorate his intelligence. "retard" huh? Since we are labeling people with rude names, Jackass.

    • Dustin is my new favorite/favourite (to avoid international flaming) anti-troll.

      Dear numerous trolls,

      1. His eyes and head do not move because he is looking at the camera each time, which is probably in the same spot every time. Even cameras have face detection. iPhoto can recognize and tag people. I'm sure there are photo editing applications/application extensions that can do that too.

      2. His head appears to change shape because it is likely tilted at different angles each time.

      3. His eyes change color/colour because when he doesn't wear glasses, he wears contacts. I have a friend who wears contacts for her astigmatism, and they change her eyes from hazel to shade of turquoise (a blue green, as I learned from Blues Clues many years ago).

      4. His hair appears to change very fast for several reasons. One, each second of the video is ABOUT one month (assuming 30fps, with each picture being 1 frame). I don't know about the rest of you, but hair can change quite a bit in few months. Two, my hair doesn't look the same way every day unless I shower and mostly dry my hair, letting it air dry to finish (I do shower every morning). I get different bed head every day. There also is hat hair, combed hair, brushed hair, gelled hair, etc (although I'm not saying he did style is hair in these ways).

      5. Many of the moving spots are probably acne (including but not limited to white heads, black heads, and cysts) or another skin condition, such as rosacea or sun burns (you know those things that make your skin red?)

      6. He probably made the same expression (a "blank look") for each picture. We don't smile or frown every moment of the day.

      7. Stop flaming nerds and geeks. Why is it that intelligence, interest in science and technology, and success are bad, weird, or "nerdy"?They invented pretty much every thing in your life, including your precious X-Box. iPods, iPhones, PCs, phones, the light bulb, TV, radios, microwave ovens, cars, cameras, the machines that make every thing you buy.

      Now, what other BS did I miss?

      -A stumbler (www.stumbleupon.com)

      P.S. PWNED.

      P.P.S. I was bored, so I decided to many of these people.

      P.P.P.S. T'was very cool, I gave it a thumbs up on stumbleupon, and I got a good kick out of the comments.

      P.P.P.P.S. Believe it or not, international community, I am an American who wrote an [almost] grammatically perfect post and made complete sense. I will be a 10th grader in college calculus (cramming algII and precalculus into the summer) and in two other AP classes receiving straight As with an above-4.0 GPA (APs are weighted as 5). I have to admit, however, the USA is filled with hypocritical people who can never seem to accomplish anything (our legislature, definitely including California's). One person is Meg Whitman, a former eBay CEO who is running for California's governor and hasn't voted in 28 years and laid off 10% of eBay's work-force to give herself $120,000,000.

      P.P.P.P.P.S. LOL. That is all.

  1. I do not doubt a second that it is the same guy on every picture. but i do doubt that there is a picture from every day in 8 years. take a look at this:

    8*365 = 2920 (should be the number of pictures)

    2920/103 = 28,35 (should be number of pictures pr/sec.

    I can not be arsed to count how many pictures there are per sec. but i seriously doubt that there is so many.

    I guess there is one per each week for 8 years.

    that will give make it just above 4 pictures a second. which seems to be more likely i think.

    //Huxi.

    • Okay seriously you cannot do math

      2920/103 = 2,835? WRONG

      Invest in a calculator The answer to that is about 28! how could you make that big of a mathmatical error?

      • Hash, you might have been a bit high when you read what i wrote. clearly i wrote 28,35 – as you stated it would be. but your confused drugged mind then made it 2,835.. not my fault. go to rehab.. or just pass 10th grade. idiot

  4. he looked good about four years in to it, what the fuck is up with the beard and long hair? let it go!

    • Tjaa det er der en god grunde til og det er at ens pupil skifter størrelse efter hvor meget lys den opfanger og det gør at øjnene sær ikke ser ens ud på alle billederne og der er så mange andre grunde men fordi jeg er bange for at du mangler lidt hjerne vil jeg ikke skriver flere. Håber du forstår og hvis ikke så er det nok på tide at få lidt mere hjerne men der er bare en teori. xD

  5. its not Fake! hes eyes is changing color cuz hes wearing contactlises instead of glasses! idot

  6. I like long hair. Freaky people who don’t like long hair :(

    And morons,how the hell is it fake?

    it’s pretty awesome~

      • Don’t say that!

        Everyones beautiful, If you did that only the odd jackass would say otherwise, Anyone else would call it a wonderful project.

        I think this was awesome to be honest. :)

    • just counted the first 10seconds and there is 30-40 pictures. how could anyone think that there was less than 60 pictures, there is only one explanation, your dumb.

      • you wouldnt be able to count them cause it would be around 3 pics a sec if it 30 pics in 10 secs so dont lie

      • you wouldnt be able to count them cause it would be around 3 pics a sec if it 30 pics in 10 secs so dont lie

        • You can count the photos by pausing and playing quickly.

          In fact, there are more than 50 pictures in the first ten seconds.

          I can’t believe the amount of idiots on this page -.-

        • ok so some people on this are idiots but i will grant them some intelligence (no reason just will) so first this is not fake because you can cleary see his hair and beard growing which takes time. secondly its not that hard to count the pictures as since it is a video you could count 25 frames per 1 second so its easy to count. to the person who said how could his face be in the same place its not that hard you mark where the camera goes and where to stand. THIS IS NOT FAKE!!!!!!!

    • If you pause it realy quick and play and pause it really quick theres seven pictures because theres already 70 pics in 10 seconds fuckin retart. stfu its real

  18. Can ANYONE here tell me who posted a link to this article? the ONLY thing I can see in my stats engine is that the traffic comes from “17d60255.ubervidz.com”

    We’re talking about a shitload of people here.. about 25000+ per hour.

  19. @geeksaresexy

    This page is linked to on a facebook group – maybe a lot of traffic is from there

  20. I do not doubt a second that it is the same guy on every picture. but i do doubt that there is a picture from every day in 8 years. take a look at this:
    8*365 = 2920 (should be the number of pictures)
    2920/103 = 28,35 (should be number of pictures pr/sec.

    I can not be arsed to count how many pictures there are per sec. but i seriously doubt that there is so many.

    I guess there is one per each week for 8 years.
    that will give make it just above 4 pictures a second. which seems to be more likely i think.

    //Huxi.

    • Okay seriously you cannot do math
      2920/103 = 2,835? WRONG
      Invest in a calculator The answer to that is about 28! how could you make that big of a mathmatical error?

      • Hash, you might have been a bit high when you read what i wrote. clearly i wrote 28,35 – as you stated it would be. but your confused drugged mind then made it 2,835.. not my fault. go to rehab.. or just pass 10th grade. idiot

  21. Fake. His head position is exactly the same on each photo. His eyes are also looking at exactly the same spot. It’s cool but fake.

    • His face position deviates massively throughout the video,and his eyes are just looking straight at the camera.

      During the video his eyes change colour due to different contacts and lighting.

  23. @Bill. If you look at the shadow on the wall you see that it changes a bit so his head is not always in the same place. His eyes are looking at the camera, where the f**k else should he be looking?

  26. OK WOWW!!!!! HAHAHAA it was like wowww, he maturedd ALOT, how old was he when he started??

  27. Ok that ain’t fake! but thats not 8 years worth of pics =P but that doesnt mean he didnt take a pic everyday, he just didnt add every pic onto this video =)

  28. Ok that ain't fake! but thats not 8 years worth of pics =P but that doesnt mean he didnt take a pic everyday, he just didnt add every pic onto this video =)

  29. For everyone who says it’s Jesus, clearly you don’t remember the Beatles, because he clearly looks like John Lennon. Ugh.

  30. For everyone who says it's Jesus, clearly you don't remember the Beatles, because he clearly looks like John Lennon. Ugh.

  31. i think this is fake because first I paus and then play and pause quick ass hell and maybe i miss like 2 or 3 pictures and the hair is not the same at all first its like 4cm long and 5days later it is like 10cm! that is why i think its fake!

    • He probably changed his hair a bit every day. Maybe it was windy, rainy, a lot of things

  33. clearly fake see how his frecles are in different posistions on different pictures he has one above his lip on some and then one on his neck on others and one at the top of his cheek in some it’s FAKE.

    • not fake at all you idiot.

      the freckles you’re talking about are spots. they do tend to grow and vanish over a period of time.

    • NOT FAKE at all you idiot.

      the ‘freckles’ you’re talking about are spots. they do tend to grow and vanish over a period of time so that’s why they’re in some shots but not others.

      the 'freckles' you're talking about are spots. they do tend to grow and vanish over a period of time so that's why they're in some shots but not others.

  35. stop saying its fake, its clearly not “his face has no expression” if it did, the changed wouldnt show as well, and it has the same background cos he probably used the same one, some people really are stupid. and dont hate on long hair, long hair ftw.

  37. I think he has included every picture, its just that would be about 40 pictures a second which would probably make it too fast for us to actually notice every single picture anyway, explaining why we think theres only about 4 pictures a second lmao. So if 40 days go by each second then yes his hair would change quite a lot.

  39. Did anyone els notice that he did age like at all in the pics? or that one day his hair was short then it changed(alot of one day)…. strange. ???

  41. I thought that was pretty awesome, and as for people saying “oh that wasn’t 8 years worth of pictures” well, that would be really boring! :) So he probably just put like one a week on :)

  43. It’s the same person alright, but it’s definately not one picture EVERY day, one a week possibley, but there’s not enough pictures in the video for it to be everyday.

  45. look at him from the beggining to end he starts out as a little nerd and turns into a hobo

  46. this is fake, you can tell by the fact the same picture appears quite a few times and also in a few of the pics his hair grows quite alot for just a few days difference?

  50. lmao the beard with the long hair and glasses you look like Johnny Depp a little :P and kinda like Serj Tankian

  51. Its fake. Look around the last 30 seconds of that video, when he starts to look like a caveman. On certain parts of that scene, his moustache is basicially falling off his face. His beard really looks like it isnt on his face at all, but outlining his head. and that isnt how beards are grown. in my opinion.

  53. Obviously it isn’t fake. It’s probly just like once everyweek or every other day. It would be longer is it was everyday.

  59. I’m really glad to have gotten this link, I heard this guy on NPR about a month ago and was curious of what he looked like. It is everyday, he actually started by taking more than 1 but had these huge huge piles of photos, so he cut back to 1/day. Also, I believe he took everyone with a polaroid camera.

  67. It’s real. A, computers are capable of showing images very, very quickly, so 28 pics per second is possible. It seems like his hair grows out in a few days, but that’s just how fast the video is. B, his expression and eye position doesn’t change because he’s looking at the camera without any emotion. People wear the same nondescript expression most of the time. C, who cares whether he looks ugly, like Jesus, like Johnny Depp, like John Lennon, or whoever. Seriously, guys.

  74. Come on people just shut the fuck up about saying it's gay. seriously why would you doubt something this cool? he worked hard for this

  75. Okay guys. You’re all idiots
    Let’s recap why.
    -1 His eyes are always towards the device he uses to take his picture, so that’s not fake. You’re an idiot.
    -2 He DOES mature. Look for “bumps” and other “new” features on his face.
    -3 He isn’t jesus, he looks more like an Outlaw. Jesus had a soup3r b3@rd.
    -4 It was DEFINITELY NOT once per day, it had to be (a guesstimate) 3-7 days, NOT months, probably once a week, I’d lean to.
    -5 You’re just dumb.
    Have a nice day.
    Love,
    The Muffin Man

  91. im not saying this is fake cos i believe its completley real, but there is a huge change from 00:45 to 00:46 for a day inbetween the two pictures being taken…

  99. Well I can say the ending is definitely fake because it goes from him having long hair to short and then back to long hair in such a shorter time than at the beginning where it took a longer time for his hair to grow back but not as long

    • maybe when it took longer to grow long he got his hair trimmed more often?? and I think all of you fail to realize that there is probably days (even months) worth of pictures in one second, so obviously the changes are going to be very fast. It is hard to see all the pictures individually and process them.

  103. I think this is FAKE because:
    1: Because of his eyes, I readed a coment above ”its not Fake! hes eyes is changing color cuz hes wearing contactlises instead of glasses! idot” But the eye is even weird when he is wearing glasses, lol
    2: Because that his face are in the middle of the picture all the time
    3: Because the head is broader one day and narrower another day.
    4: One day his hair is short and the next day it is long..

    • Seriously? none of those reasons are legitimate. he probably has software that has facial detection to center it. and how does slight changes in eye color make it fake at all, same thing with the width. its obviously the same guy. the hair thing could be explained if he couldn’t take a picture of himself for a week. its not impossible that he didn’t take a picture every day.

    I hate coming to pages and finding people yell PHOTOSHOP or FAKE.

    Get a life.

  107. FAKE!! If you look at one day to the next, his hair grows WAAYY too much in some instances. It’s short one day and then suddenly much longer. This is a fake video. Someone has way too much time on their hands.

  111. To be honest i think the only reason people are finding this hard to believe is because the guy is fairly good-looking. I think nerdly stereotypes are telling us that good looking people don’t have the skill or wherewithal to pull this off and so most of us feel the need to cry foul out of a sense of jealousy. To this I can only say, please, don’t be a dick.

  113. I’m not necessarily going to say it’s “fake”, but I don’t think the whole truth was told about the making of the video. People have already pointed out that his face never moves. More specifically, watch the eyes. The eyes are in the *exact* same position for every single photo. Sure, you can make a mark where to stand, where to look, etc, but there is going to be movement. It’s TOO perfect.

    It’s a really cool idea, and props for throwing it up, but when things seem a little too good to be real, it takes the fun out of it. There was a guy that did something similar not long ago, claimed to have walked some incredible distance, and took a photo each day along the way, but if you stop and actually look at the background of the photo’s, he was also taking cabs and flying… Same principle.

    Hey DUSTIN, Blah, blah, blah, blah. Get a friggin’ life, geez!!

    • That’s funny ANGIE, of all the comments on here that are slammin’ this dude, you decide to flame me for providing specific info defending the creator of the video… Oh well.

  120. Wow that Dustin guy is some EXTREME analytic. Who the fudge cares man.?? But yourself of course.

    Well done to JK, It’s a great video and an awesome idea.

  121. Wow that Dustin guy is some EXTREME analytic. Who the fudge cares man.?? But yourself of course.

    Well done to JK, It's a great video and an awesome idea.

  122. Dustin,

    1, Who says it’s 30 frames per second anyway? Not even you. You said “approx 30 frames per second.”

    2. Today’s software allows you to adjust frames per second however you like.

    3. There is no way of knowing if he actually did every frame exactly the same length of time. Are your eyes/mind that perceptive? No.

    4. There was obviously a little fanciness at the beginning and especially the end which were done for the sake of the movie (e.g. he didn’t shave his moustache one day and magically grow it back to full length the next day several times).

    5. Did you factor in the time for the intro and outro titles?

    Conclusion: you are a dummy.

  123. Correction: Since you are obviously a stickler for inane details, #3 should have read:

    3. There is no way of knowing if he actually did every IMAGE exactly the same length of time (# of frames per second). Are your eyes/mind that perceptive? No. The description of how he created the video might not be exactly accurate. To me it looks like some images in the beginning lasted longer and other flash by instantly.

  124. You people make me laugh….

    Comments like, face in the same place and mouth the same, its too perfect… for fecks sake…

    All he had to do was take each single picture….. and line up the eyes….. they dont move. So then the rest of his face is in the SAME PLACE….

    Jeeze.

    This guy has just put a lot of time and effort into something pretty awesome… Even if it was fake…. Its brilliant.

    Give the guy the credit he deserves and stop being losers.

    Just because YOU dont understand the process of its creation… doesnt mean that it should be seen in a negative light.

  125. "His eyes are also looking at exactly the same spot."

    LOL, do you even know how a photo camera works? Have you considered that he is looking at the exact center of the lens every single time. After that it wouldn't be too hard to align all the photos so that the pupils are at the exact same position in the frame.

  126. this guy needs a new wardrobe over the course of 8 years he wore that same orange shirt probably 600 times

  127. You guys do realise that it would probably be HARDER to fake than do this properly?

    The world must be such a confusing place to most of you thick cunts.

  128. I've read some of the commments here and and particularly @dustin… have you ever commited to anything for 8 years besides masturbating?? how much discipline does it take to complete a project like this?? hmmm….

  129. WOW, that was pretty damn kewl. I think I wud do that too, but I have no patience for that…..KUDOS for you…. ~iyAOyAs~

  130. I didn't care much about the video. One advice though, keep you hair short and shave off that ghastly facial hair. You look better clean.

  131. i like the way his mustache like flops around at the end. it looks like its swimming hahahaha

  132. i like the way his mustache like flops around at the end. it looks like its swimming hahahaha

  133. Browsing through the other comments, it seems I'm the only one that was a bit freaked out at his wild mustache growing in the last few seconds.  I was literally screaming "SHAVE IT OFF" in my head.  I think it has scarred me for life. :(

  134. For everyone that is saying this is fake, don't watch his face, watch his neck and shirt, you will see that it is clearly the same guy in every pic because of the mole on his neck. And The thing about the shirts, you can tell there are quite a few pictures in every sec, I cannot catch how many but I would guess roughly 15-20. It is too hard to try and count.
    And his facial expression has to be the same otherwise how in the hell would it look right if in one he was smiling or smirking.

  135. i think this is ashop due to my having used photoshop and my having seen a few shops in the past
