Someone uploaded a supposedly new video of WTC7 taken with home video that has flashes and sounds of explosions. The video is clearly and provably fake.

1. It is reversed frame-by-frame. It could not be the other side of the building because that side was shrouded in smoke. Also (as others have noted) the other side doesn't look like this). I have here decomposed the video into jpg images, batch reversed them, and recomposed them into a video. How would home video footage become flipped in the first place? There may be some software that does this, but I don't know what it is. Why would any legitimate video be processed this way?
2. The pattern of window breakage does not match other videos. One pattern of broken windows under the east penthouse is clearly duplicated a few floors lower like a crude Photoshop copy. This is not seen in other videos.
3. In documented footage the east penthouse completely disappears before the west penthouse starts to disappear. In this video the west penthouse is completely gone while a corner of the east penthouse is still visible.
4. After the east penthouse falls, with the accompanying window breakage under it, there is a significant delay before the west penthouse falls. The windows under the west penthouse do not break until after collapse begins, yet in this video the window breakage, with flashes, occurs while a corner of the east penthouse is still visible.
5. And so forth. Someone put way too much effort into faking this video in comparison with how crude it is.
