I addressed it in the other thread, that it's probably something in the TV doing it, some kind of processing that's causing a delay on one side. He's definitely not faking it, you can actually see the ghosted echo of the hand in the left image, that matches what the right image shows. For whatever reason, it's definitely showing two different images, and that's a major issue for 3D.
3D/2D during pausing is actually disc-dependant. Some movies remain 3D when paused, others will revert to 2D. Something in the way the playback software works, I guess. (I also have a passive display)
