The video was uploaded to YouTube on April 8, 2006.
The subject, Bigfoot, Sasquatch, whatever, captured in the video looks very life-like, not like a man in a suit.
Claimed by some to be the best Bigfoot/Sasquatch footage other than the Patterson/Gimlin film.
The Harley Hoffman Bigfoot film shows detail uncommon in most fake Bigfoot hoax films. It was shot in British Columbia in 2001 under unknown circumstances. That seems to be the biggest problem with this film.
Hoffman has not spoken publicly since he shot the film and we know little about him. He and his brother seem to be more eccentric then Todd Standing. For example, Haley’s brother once had a website trying to prove the existence of Santa Claus! This is all strange, except this film.
The quality and resolution is outstanding, and not your garden variety blobsquatch. Features of hair length and color are visible on this video. Why would cheap hoaxers be concerned with such detail similar to the Patterson film
This film has detail and it is very similar to the Patterson Gimlim Film. The major detail of the film that has always convinced me of it possibly being real is the width of the back with deltoids and triceps definition and a clear spine seen on the back. I will let the images and video demonstrate this.
This is not a cheap monkey suit. If all they wanted was a few seconds of video to hoax, there is way too much going on here for their basic needs.sasquatchevidence.com
Amazingly, today I discovered we had never posted this video here on Cryptomundo. It has been referenced in the comments section however:
Did anyone else notice Harley Hoffman’s Bigfoot video is on YouTube as well? (It’s the one called “BIGFOOT Video WTF Insane!!!”) I’d never heard of it until today… personally, it reminded me of the Freeman footage, though I was immediately struck by how much it reminded me of the Patterson/Gimlin subject. If it’s a guy in a suit, it’s a pretty good job.
Anyone got the lowdown on this one? gridgug
Try looking up the Harley Hoffman video on Youtube; it’s got some Patty-esque features (no neck, “moving muscles,” and seemingly short hair).AtomicMrEMonster
“”Try looking up the Harley Hoffman video on Youtube; it’s got some Patty-esque features (no neck, “moving muscles,” and seemingly short hair).””
Oh come off it. That’s only in view for a second or two but even that is enough to see it’s a fake. The costume isn’t even tight fitting, the hair is longer than the P/G subject, the head is far too big in comparison to the width of the shoulders (a dead easy suit giveaway) etc etc etc.
Why don’t we see it clearly, even at a distance? Because the movements would give the game away to even the gullible….that’s why.

I saw that video yesterday too. As I wrote I’m 30-40% convinced of the P-G film, and I’m not saying I believe completely that this other video is real.
But I too, felt there were some strong ressemblances, in the posture of the creature, and also the type of hair.
I’ll say something in favor of the P-G film: those other ape suits that have been shown here, including the one used by the BBC, lack a very crucial factor to match Patty, and it’s not just the length of the hairs, but the sheen, the lustrous coat that seems to come from a live animal. Those other suits? you can plainly see that is fake hair, they have no luster, they don’t reflect the light of the sun. That is a very important thing in the P-G film and we shouldn’t overlook it.
And this new video has some of that too. For about a second I admit; it’s way too short and it conspicously shows the creature amid the trees so you never have a complete shot of it (unlike the P-G, which IF a fake, was much bolder in its attempt to fool the audience)
So this brings me to a question to you fellow crypto-hobbyists: After 40 years, which other video evidence could be compared (or even trump) the P-G film from its position of Best Evidence? Any suggestions?red_pill_junkie
No one to this day knows anything about this Harley Hoffman character. Is he a real person, who knows?
Is the video legit, or is it a hoax?
