How White Helmets Videos Are Made

The video below was originally uploaded on November 18 in the channel of the RFSMediaOffice (Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office), a propaganda organization supporting various groups fighting the Syrian state.

It depicts the "Making of" a scene where people in White Helmets outfit "rescue" a man. For some 20 seconds the two "rescuers" and the "victim" are motionless waiting for the command to start a hectic "rescue operation" and, when that starts, adds on the usual background sound of screaming people.

The embed is a copy I made from the original and posted on my account to make sure that it is preserved.

I do not know why the RFS Media Office would upload this. To show that the White Helmets and their videos are fake? Did they not pay their dues? Or was the channel hacked and the upload done by someone else?

The original title "Edge of death | #MannequinChallenge" points to some social media nonsense which The Telegraph describes as:

A viral video craze, it involves people imitating mannequins and freezing for the camera while music plays in the background.

So is this a fake? Or a fake of the fakes the original White Helmets videos are (this one for example)?

Not fake enough yet?

How about this Yahoo News headline: All hospitals in eastern Aleppo out of action after bombardments: officials. Now compare with this tweet by an NPR Middle East correspondent:

Alison Meuse Verified account @AliTahmizian - 2:20 AM - 21 Nov 2016

MSF says four out of eight hospitals in eastern Aleppo city are currently out of service, including the only dedicated pediatric hospital.

All or four out of eight - those numbers don't matter as some journalists evidently to care how fake their stories are. Remember how six pediatricians in east-Aleppo signed an open letter to Obama a few weeks after the "last pediatrician in Aleppo" was killed? No journo cared about that insult to their readers sanity. Who by the way runs that "only dedicated pediatric hospital" in east-Aleppo? Some horse doctor?

Anyway - have fun with this while I keep nursing my not so fake influenza (no video).

a lot of hate here.
the white helmets do a tremendous amount of good along with amaq news and site intel group are are only source of uncorrupted reality from assad and putins killing fields.
why upload a fake clip probably made by rt or sputnick to drag the uk,israel and the cia through the dirt.
this along with pizzagate and the rigged election should be proof enough that putin has his nazi fingers in many pies.
if putin wants to play in the the us homelands and londonistan and syria that is fine but he will get his fingers burnt if he messes with israel.

Wow, an anti-semitic troll passing himself off as a Zionist. But then the Zionists have always loved anti-semites. So perhaps he's a Zionist troll passing himself off as an anti-semite. Either way he's a racist.

It's a video they (misguidedly, ihindisight) did for the Mannequin Challenge to raise awareness of their cause.

Every single one of you trying to defame aid workers on the ground in Aleppo should hang your heads in shame
