Most watched YouTube video ever produced in Quebec
The baby-snatching fake eagle is helping a deserving student take flight.
The viral video of the eagle, which was created by students at Montreal’s Centre NAD, has received international media attention and had more than 41 million views on YouTube since it was posted on Dec. 18.
And the school says it’s also generated a few bucks that will go toward a scholarship for a deserving student at the 3D animation and digital design school.
School spokeswoman Claude Arsenault says the amount of the scholarship hasn’t been determined because the cheque hasn’t yet arrived from Google, YouTube’s owner.
Fake clip viewed more than 17,000,000 times

An online video of the massive bird plucking an infant off the ground was acknowledged by its creators as a fake Wednesday.

It was actually produced by students as a class project at a new-media training institute in Montreal.
Their assignment: create a viral video and a hoax.
