Going viral : 'Leaked' Star Wars 7 production footage

A video showing a behind-the-scenes look at the 'Star Wars 7' film production has gone viral.

The leaked video, cleverly edited by Frank Wunderlich shows a host of Star Wars machinery at Frankfurt airport in Germany being captured on film.

Of course, it's a clever edit and none of the filming has taken place in this location, nor can we see any evidence of JJ Abrams and his entourage, but the style of the video, and the way it has been edited to seem as if it came from amateur footage, is very well conceived.

So far, the video has attained over 5 million views on Youtube. The creator posted this note under the video :

Star Wars 7 filming in Germany?

"Looks like the Story of Star Wars plays on Earth too in the next Episode. I took these pictures on my Flight back from the States to Germany at the Frankfurt Airport. Seems like the biggest german airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode -- there have just been imperial forces at the scene. Maybe the Rebelboys hide in Berlin"

Should Disney hire him to make video ads of the real movie when it comes out next year?
