This controversial video purports to portray suspected nutcase Boohoomi Dal, Jr., the Panoland expatriate who escaped the failed nuclear tests of his own distant nation to quickly become the leader of the mutant insurgency movement in Crooked Corners. But recent studies have uncovered inconsistencies that suggest the footage to be fake.
