    In this video I expose Mr. Tommy Jordan and his "Facebook Parenting" video as a hoax. Mr. Jordan communicated beforehand that he had an idea to use in an attempt to make a video that would go viral. I had no idea the video would involve a hoax until after I saw it.

    This guy has a lot of "irons in the fire" that he piddles around with, but his wife is actually the bread winner and the one with the real job.
    He calls himself an "IT guy," but he has no degree in computing nor does he have any formal training in it. In other words, I wouldn't even allow him to dust my computer...much less work on it.

    Here's a link to the veterinary neutering clinic. Click on "About Us" and then "Our Team" and you'll see Tommy Jordan, "Administrative Technical Staff."
    That's nothing but a fancy term for "gopher" and answering the phone...while his veterinarian wife does the work.
    If you read his wife's bio it says that she married her "high school sweetheart." That bio is a bit deceptive. She was married for several years to a different guy and only got married to Tommy Jordan within the past year. She essentially has him do chores at her veterinary clinic. If it wasn't for her, he wouldn't have any job at all.
    The daughter "Hannah" that he refers to in his hoax video is his from a previous relationship.
    http://spayneuter.bearcreekvet.net/

    His "One Man's Junk" selling website...
    http://www.omjlist.com/

    His website for his "book," with a picture of him in a suit and tie attempting to look official and important.
    His "book" is nothing more than an enlarged pamphlet that he paid to have printed.
    http://tommyjordan.me/

    You have been deceived.

    You mean people believed it was genuine?

    It had viral sugar coated all over it. The situation was blatantly sensationalist. I didn't take part in the thread, but I didn't really see anything that set it apart from other 'viral' videos apart from really great acting.

    I'd be patient and wait for more "proof" than believing some old guy speculating about things he's finding on Jordan's own site.

    I still don't exactly understand how his video is a Hoax. So what, Mr. Jordan dabbles into projects and doesnt want to contact the news outlets.

    If by "exploding" you mean "break apart on impact with a hard surface", then yes.

    Otherwise, not to my knowledge.

    They don't "explode" like you think they do. Because they're hollow point they start tumbling upon impact and mushroom out, so the bullet turns itself inside out and becomes larger, thats atleast how I think they work.

    Guess I was wrong.

    Those bullets are $15 for a pack of 6 though, and the guy in the video said his ammo cost about a dollar apiece.

    thats what I thought of at first but it sounds like there is SOME truth in his video. Although not absolute truth. Wish the guy would just get to the point instead of drawing it out.

    I find the fact that he works for his wife to be hilarious. No sexism intended, but he rambled on in the video about how his daughter needs a job.

    No, a hollow point round actually shatters into pieces on impact. For that reason it is used only for law enforcement, since it allows them to quickly put down a target in a crowd without injuring people behind him/her.
