Bigfoot Caught on Camera Phone!

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on January 22nd, 2007

I apologize already for the sensationalistic headline on this post. But I wanted folks to come and check out this feature of the new site.

One of the cool features of the updated site is the fact that we can play the videos right here on the site.

In the past, all we could do was provide a link to whatever video hosting site to send you there to watch the video.

Feel free to comment on the video here.

Loren has posted a topic this morning asking for the readers’ feedback on the new site design. Please post your comments about the design there on Cryptomundo.

Here is a commercial that Cingular ran showing what people have supposed. In today’s age of rapidly advancing technology, one fact is true. There are more cameras out in areas where someone may catch a photo or video of a cryptid.

The problem being that a lot of the phones have fairly low resolution cameras.

We received a video shot with a camera phone last year at the TBRC. While it showed a large, dark, mobile object, it was such low resolution that it was inconclusive at best. Could it have been Bigfoot? Perhaps…

Here is the link to the video on Metacafe. For those that can’t view the video here on Cryptomundo, perhaps you can view it on their site, or perhaps even troubleshoot your browser plug-in issues.

    Too bad the “playing video part” isn’t working for me.
    Maybe the first bug.
    Just FYI.

  2. DWA responds:

    Looks like you can’t see the video here! Not on my machine.

    Maybe it’s a firewall issue. But no problem to me. I’m generally not going to look at anything I can’t find easily unless it’s considered good enough to be a breakthrough.

    And how many of those have there been lately?

  3. EastexQueenB responds:

    It’s not working for me either, and I usually have no problem with videos.

  4. Sardokar responds:

    Can’t see the video either, maybe it’s the QuickTime format that is not working for me and like the others, I usually have no problem with videos.

  5. Ceroill responds:

    Likewise. Nothing but a white square.

  6. rani124 responds:

    Odd, it works fine for me.

  7. sadisticgreen responds:

    Unless it’s a yeti in a serious blizzard, I can’t see a thing squire!

  8. fredfacker responds:

    No video for me, but I think it’s my office Internet filters. They’re set to block streaming content.

    It’s true that there are many more camera out there now that people carry phones with them everywhere they go. However, I know the camera on my phone is so bad that unless bigfoot was holding perfectly still in direct sunlight, I wouldn’t get anything, but a blurry blob. I think this current generation of camera phones will do nothing, but generate another generation of blobsquatches.

  9. DeBo responds:

    works fine for me…love my mac =). as time goes on these cell phones and their cameras are getting amazing. i just bought a new phone and its got a 1.3 megapixel camera which is pretty darn good. with the apple iphone coming out and other technology I don’t think it will be long til you’re talking on the phone while shooting a picture with the quality of a higher end digital camera.

  10. One Eyed Cat responds:

    White square here also.

  11. joppa responds:

    I got nothing; so it seems that you may also have to post a link to the original site for viewing.

  12. flame821 responds:

    white square here also, I’m sad to say.

    And I have to agree that current Western cell phones will show nothing but blobs. (The Eastern, specifically Asian cell phones have iPhones beat by a mile already) I’m not sure why its taking so long for the technology to eek its way across the Pacific, but when it does we will not only be able to get good shots, but GPS locations to make recovery of physical evidence that much easier.

  13. Craig Woolheater responds:

    I have added the link to the video on the Metacafe website above.

  14. Sunny responds:

    Works just fine here — even if I did almost shoot Diet Coke out of my nose at BF’s performance.

  15. shumway10973 responds:

    the actual “video player” seemed to want to work for me, unfortunately I am using dial up and I am really, really, really slow. 26400 is the best that I am able to do (I hate ATT). The still pic at the beginning, only the tree right there at front was clear. By the way, any comments from the person as to why they just had their camera/phone out and in video mode? Sounds kinda fishy to me.

  16. Craig Woolheater responds:

    Has anybody that was not able to view the video here on Cryptomundo able to view it on Metacafe’s site?

  17. Ceroill responds:

    The link works fine, thanks Craig.

  18. EastexQueenB responds:

    Can’t view it here, can view it at Metcafe just fine.

  19. rani124 responds:

    “By the way, any comments from the person as to why they just had their camera/phone out and in video mode? Sounds kinda fishy to me.”

    shumway10973, it isn’t of a real BF. It’s a commercial that Cingular Wireless has been running on tv. I think it’s hilarious. 🙂

    By the way Craig, I can see the video just fine in Firefox, but it doesn’t play in IE 6.0. (Also posted this on the “Crytomundo 2.0 Is Up” thead.)

  20. captiannemo responds:

    I see it!
    An albino Bigfoot in a snowstorm!

  21. Blue Steel responds:

    Count me as another one, Craig. Couldn’t see anything here, but I could view it just fine at Metacafe.

  22. Darkstream responds:

    My experience with video hosting sites is that sometimes there’s a bottleneck along the tubes that causes the original site to not load the video. I usually have this problem with youtube. If there’s a blank square where the embedded video should be, I usually can’t even load either. It’s not indicative of a problem with your PC, Mac, or browser, but of the host site, IMO.

    For the record, I was able to watch the video and “boo” to the misleading headline.

  23. greatanarch responds:

    No luck using IE7 and Adobe Flash Player 9. Works on Metacafe.

  24. I_M_NOT_A_Yarwen responds:

    No problems viewing….hilarious commercial.

  25. dws responds:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! So funny! that’s why I have my camera phone every where I go!

  26. kittenz responds:

    Oddly enough, I can’t view the video using IE 6 (Win2K), but with Firefox it plays through (hilariously I might add!)

    What a cute commercial!

  27. mystery_man responds:

    The video works great on my computer. Very cool new feature! I hadn’t seen this commercial before. Hilarious! I’m going to be chuckling about it for awhile.

  28. sschaper responds:

    not very original. There was a camera phone ad with bigfoot in it a few years ago.

  29. YourPTR! responds:

    Camera phones are not only quite low resolution at the moment but they are also only really useful for very closeup objects so I don’t think they would be much good for capturing Bigfoot unforunately.

  30. joppa responds:

    Thanks for the meta link – funny clip. Ranks up there with the beef jerky commercials.
