Nessie Caught on Video?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 19th, 2007

The text from youtube, where the video is hosted.

Recent overwhelming evidence has re-ignited the world’s passion for this magical Water Horse and this recent video from Loch Ness corroborates the footage shot June 2nd 2007.ASecretThisBig

Was there a video shot of Nessie on June 2, 2007 that we don’t know about?

Or is this referring to the Gordon Holmes Loch Ness video shot late last month?

I wonder if this has anything to do with the film The Waterhorse?

    Closing scene, as Nessie swims out to sea, free at last!

  2. Mnynames responds:

    I doubt a hoaxer would’ve thought to add the tail fins, but a concept artist for a movie certainly would have…just my 2 cents.

  3. PsychedelicShroom responds:

    That isn’t a shot of a pleisasaur breaching, and, it is a clever hoax at the beginning, however, you can see, at the end of the breaching action, the tail of the well known organism that the pleisasaur was edited onto… an Orca.

    If this were done better, we would never have seen the tail.

    If you follow the link at the end of the clip,, it brings you to the Waterhorse movie website.

    Taking a moment to check the link leads you to the site promoting The Waterhorse.

    Just my two cents.

    Viral promotion video says me

  7. Tabbercat8 responds:

    If you listen to the commentary he’s saying pan right, giving directions to the camera man. Sounds like movie scene to me.

    What’s next, Biscardi taking an old Greg Luganis diving clip, adding fur and claiming Bigfoot dives from waterfalls with Olympic grace?

  9. mystery_man responds:

    This kind of goes back to what was being discussed on another thread and that is the possible future problem of CGI used to hoax footage. Sure, it seems that this is some sort of viral marketing campaign by the filmmakers, but imagine when CGI gets cheap and easy enough to catch on like photoshop.

    Imagine if a better done clip than this was done by some anonymous hoaxers not relating it to any movie, who had been studying up on what us cryptos pick out as fake in these videos. I foresee the use of increasingly sophisticated computer visual effects causing a big headache when trying to analyze supposed cryptid footage. The technology to pull of very realistic looking footage may only be available to big studios now, but this sort of thing invariably gets cheaper and more accessible. I think even now someone could possibly pull off a compelling shot if it was somewhat kept in the shadows, obscure enough to not have people thinking it’s a fake right off the bat.

    Of course, nowadays people pick off photoshopped stuff fairly quickly, but that was not always the case. I’m curious to see the extent of computer trickery in any possible future hoaxes.

    Surely no one actually considered that this could be real? It was obviously done with tongue firmly in cheek. The idea of nessie leaping out of the water like a great white snatching a seal… pretty neat stuff though…

  11. Excelsior Comics responds:

    Awful lot of otters….

  12. DARHOP responds:

    Man, you guy’s ruin everything… I was sure I was seeing the biggest Otter ever filmed…

  13. Chuckles responds:

    Being a fan of Animal Planet, Discovery, et al, the film sequence is nothing more than a great white shark, with a seal (in its final moments of life), securely locked in the shark’s jaws. Rocketing up from the depths to “hit” unwary seals swimming at or near the surface is a typical great white tactic. I might even venture a guess as to where the footage was taken: off the coast of South Africa or in proximity to the Faralone Islands off of San Francisco Bay, California. And, yes, orcas use a similar tactic to nab seals.

  14. kamoeba responds:

    I don’t know…CGI looks every bit as fake to me as stop-motion animation, guys in costumes and Photoshop.

  15. dws responds:

    Guys ever seen the WALKING WITH DINOSAURS episode of the Elasmosaurus?

    nuff’ said 😀

  16. YourPTR! responds:

    I already saw this on another site. It’s the coolest hoax video I’ve ever seen though! The original subject was some kind of whale. 🙂

  17. YourPTR! responds:

    And it’s not taken at Loch Ness either! 🙂

  18. CrimsonFox79 responds:

    It’s a very cool video, but the fact that the link at the end brings you to the movie website should be an indication that it’s a promotional video for the movie :-/

  19. Daniel Loxton responds:

    It seems that this is a viral promotional video for The Water Horse, as I wrote in eSkeptic. As posters above have pointed out, the fact that the clip actually includes a url for the film really says it all. Further, the creature design for the leaping plesiosaur is the same as the creature design for the movie, including the distinctive whale-like tail.

    (I also contacted Weta Digital, the New Zealand special effects vendor responsible for the film’s creature FX, to ask if their team made the leaping clip. They passed my query on to their client, Sony Pictures, who coyly responded, “We have no comment about the clip you indicated below at this time.” I read that as, “Yes, it’s a viral ad.”)
