Looks like great fun, although I couldn't help wondering all while watching it: how much bigger is the field until the combine harvester hits something?

In the tradition of all crazy videos posted on the internet, I call "FAKE".

Right near the end, as he is turning to run away, it appears his arm is coming through a tube (it looks TOO perfectly round). If it were real, i would expect the opening to be packed solid.

Of course, I know nothing about farm equipment, so someone tell me why I'm wrong.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

The youtube forum for this video has tons of people calling fake. The main issue is how the thing works. Apparently, it's continuous which is then cut into bales.

Well, sure. I would think the main issue is that any process that produces those nice rectangular blocks of hay would have also decapitated the subject of the video, and cut off his legs. Probably it would also inflict serious damage on his manhood. That's kind of a given, isn't it? The video is funny despite that, or perhaps (partly) because of it. It's silly. Do not try this at home.
I agree. Here's the link:
