Default OverClock Kernel Legit or Fake?

Hello XDA members,
My friend found a Kernel that allows to clock his phone at 1.2Ghz.



He got it from this YouTube Video.

So with your help can we confirm if it is Fake or Legit?
He did an Antutu Benchmark test and it the difference between the CPU scores were 1, so I think it is fake.

BTW the video is in Spanish!

Dude, I have already stated that I think it is fake. But looking into it more, it looks like an older version of the Rafael.baugis kernel which I think used to have a placebo with the clocking.
