The building's floors are supposed to be straight as well, but they aren't. The video's quality is just pretty bad.

Well, it's good to know that the Shard's cladding is so good it defies belief I suppose

All it is, is a reflection of another building. Due to the reflections from that angle and the fact it's all glass means you can't see the actual floors properly from there. It's not some kind of conspiracy.

Yep, looks real to me...nothing fake about it. What you see is a reflection of another building at an angle you are not used to seeing.

Is the Thames frozen in that pic, or is it just the reflections playing tricks on my eyes?

also i hope that they put lighting on the shard that can change for different occasions like the ESB.
