Metro Cryptids

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 12th, 2009

Travelers on the Washington DC Metro have some new cryptid ads that are turning heads.

Most visible, thusfar, are Mermaid and Bigfoot.

Have you seen them? The Bigfoot cheerfully staring at you as you descend the escalator or the tall, naked alien greeting you from the balcony? It seems Metro has allowed an unusually creative advertising campaign to invade the Metro Center platforms. Each large, mythical creature holds a lump of coal as a pun on an eco-message by a company that I shall not shamelessly plug here.

More, here.

What is apparent from this popular image of Bigfoot, however, is that the reflection is not of the sighted Bigfoot of the Pacific Northwest, but a copycat of the Harry and the Hendersons Bigfoot.

Update:

For more background on what’s behind the ads, see here.

About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
