Apparently it's a commercial, so I'm pretty sure this didn't happen, but it does look real. The low res video also probably hides some irregularities that you might see if it were on TV.

Funny, as I was starting to think about whether it might be real or not after watching it, the fact that it was a commercial for a Nokia phone made me lean towards it being real. I know you shouldn't believe everything you see in advertising (in fact, maybe even don't believe in most of it) but I didn't think a large company like Nokia would lie about something like that.

There is more:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-fZ6tJG ... re=related

I looked up a bit more about the commercial, and the people who believe it is fake make two arguments. These arguments are a bit funny, because they are completely contradictory:

Argument #1: That is not Bruce Lee in the video. It is an imposter pretending to be Bruce Lee, but he looks nothing like Bruce Lee.

Argument #2: The video of Bruce Lee has been superimposed onto the video of people playing pingpong.

So you can see, the arguments are either it is Bruce Lee or it is not. There is no evidence to prove either side given, just assertions that they are true. Clearly both sides cannot be true, and there is still the third option of it being real. I think it would be extremely hard (not impossible) to superimpose his image into the video and have it work out for hitting the ball accurately (where the nunchuk hits the ball).

The real question everybody should be asking is who would win... Forrest Gump or Bruce Lee?

I don't think Nokia made any claims of it being real, and it has nothing to do with their product so there really nothing to lie about. And if this actually happened you would think we would have seen it before. Nokia just wants to get peoples attention, and they have.
In Forrest Gump, where Tom Hank's is playing Ping Pong at the Olympics and such, the ball itself was computer generated, so it very possible they did it here too.

Great artists do not rely on talent but the countless numbers of hour practicing and honing a skill.
