Sign language fail at Mandela Memorial

This signer at the Nelson Mandela Memorial in South Africa yesterday is a fake, according all deaf people who watched him flail his way through it.

You'll notice, in the video, the correct version is also posted... this guy is WAY OFF.

Apparently the man has no signing credentials. The deaf community has called him a "charlatan."
