The Trojan Horse: Could it really have worked?

A friend of mine and I often discuss whether the Greeks actually could have used a hollow wooden horse to trick the Trojans as depicted in the Iliad. My friend firmly believes that no one would be dumb enough to fall for this trick, but if the video below is any indication lots of people might be dumb enough to fall for it. Though it appears that the descendants of the original Trojans have learned their lesson and that the Australian military are wise to Greek tricks as well.
