Title card.

Captain Disillusion is an Internet show by Alan Melikdjanian who hosts using his alter ego, Captain Disillusion. The show's began by debunking viral video hoaxes where Captain Disillusion taked a modified video which is being passed off as genuine, shows what video editing techniques were probably used to modify the video, and then frequently creates a similar video himself using those techniques. The theme of the show seems to have morphed into understanding how visual special effects work.


As a skeptic, I feel a duty to point out hoaxes when my friends and family share them. Researching their videos they post online often leads me back to the Captain Disillusion channel, which was how I became a fan many years ago. To this day, I still find myself linking to his past videos when a well-meaning friend is duped by an online video hoax.
