How Lady Gaga faked her Super Bowl Jump to make it seem as if she really jumped down 260 feet
Just when everyone felt what a daredevil lady Gaga is with her superbowl stadium roof jump, it now turns out that she was faking it. Reports say that she actually fooled the audience into believing she plummeted 260 feet. Lady Gaga’s fake superbowl jump feat was a pre recorded segment showing her on a large screen suspended by wires. It wasn’t actually happening live and was a clever trick of illumination and technology.
Those watching on TV screens at home were even more convinced as it was brilliantly edited to look like a real impressive feat.
1 FAA rules and unpredictable weather denied a live jump
The revelation was made by Intel drones that coordinated as many as 300 drones that emitted lights to display the American flag and Pepsi’s logo in the sky above the stadium. Since there are FAA rules on drones, the segment had to be recorded well in advance. However Gaga did perform the jump at an earlier date without using a double.
2 Lady Gaga rocked the superbowl with a spectacular performance
Despite these revelations, there’s no denying Gaga rocked the night with her stunning performance. Her awesome jump which of course was pre-recorded was watched by thousands both live and at home making it seem Lady Gaga was plummeting down into the NSG stadium. Gaga actually commenced the performance half way up being suspend in mid air with the help of safety wires.
3 How she did it
While Lady gaga was standing on the roof, she sang snippets of this land is your land and God bless America with the red and blue twinkling form drones making the shape of the US flag. Once the prerecorded footage was aired, cameras quickly cut to Lady Gaga somersaulting through the air and landing on the podium to continue the show.
4 Decision was taken to film the jump in advance for safety reasons
Intel Drones spokesmen stated that it had to be pre recorded because there was no predicting weather condition which may have disrupted a live jump. “We’d hate to plan all this and, if the wind speeds are too high or if it’s raining and the roof is closed, no one can see this spectacular show. So our creative team as well as the Super Bowl creative team felt this would be best to be filmed”.
5 It was a Gaga night beyond doubt
But!! Despite of a pre recorded Jump. Lady Gaga certainly delivered at the superbowl where The New England patriots made a historical comeback to defeat the Atlanta falcons 34-28 in overtime.
Lady Gaga’s fake superbowl jump may have been prerecorded but she was of course the star of the evening as she danced and sang backed by a large troupe of dancers and musicians. Gaga commanded the how on her own steam without extra guest stars and singers. The show organizers and Lady Gaga had wanted to do something spectacular for the superbowl which is why they hit upon the idea of suspending her in the air and bringing her plummeting down to the podium. The initial idea though came from Gaga’s sister Natalie.
