Musician and blogger, Amanda Palmer, gave this TED talk back…
Many have watched the seemingly amazing video by Lars Anderson that claimed he’d rediscovered a long lost style of archery. Lars’ video took the internet by storm and used ancient texts and images to assert his claims – hey, I even posted the video on this website. But then I came across this week’s feature video, and thought in the interest of fairness, I should post this rebuttal too.
The new video appears on skepticallypwnd‘s YouTube Channel and is written and narrated by archer Anna Maltese. It seeks to debunk a slew of facts quoted in Lars’ original video as well as the assertion that his technique is uniquely better than those currently used in the field of archery.
I thought this response video was well put together. Looks like Lars has made has made himself some new enemies with his brash claims.
