“Seems To Be A Hoax, But It’s A Neat Video”

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 12th, 2010

“Wildmaiden” shares:

This video screamed hoax to me from the beginning, but I’m not one to dismiss anything outright without at least examining the evidence. Here are some frames from the video, enlarged and sharpened, just before the “creature” turns to run away [see below].

You can see, in my opinion, rather clearly in the second frame that the eyes appear to exhibit a mask effect of showing some skin around the eye of the person in the mask. On the other hand I suppose the mouth could possibly be opening, which would be difficult to achieve in a mask. No frames offered a more clear image of the creature than the two I enlarged here.

In my opinion it seems to be a hoax, but it’s a neat video anyway.

Meanwhile, Theush asks us to…

Check this out [see below]; a closer more detailed look at the video.

It is time for a vote. Register your opinion.

Do you want to hear more about this?

Should YouTube “Bigfoot” videos be posted here?

What should be done about this phenomena?

    Seems like we got ourselves one of the abominable members of KKK.

  2. Doug responds:

    Is it fake? Yeah, but I’ll have to say it is a really cool and well done video. The eyes just do not look right to me.

  3. WolfGirl responds:

    I’m not sure about this one. If I had to pick a side, I’d say fake, but only because I don’t feel comfortable saying it’s 100% real.

  4. DWA responds:

    You gotta run all of these you get; it hones analytical chops in a field that needs that.

    That said: this one’s a prank. Who runs half a minute of a flashlight beam on the ground…then lifts it, with no cues, just in time? Then doesn’t even attempt to follow the fleeing figure, but offers the stagiest “what was that” you ever heard?

  5. cryptocajun responds:

    I’d have to declare shenanigans on this one. Seems that a white bigfoot would have been spotted by now in PA, but I guess you never know. Could be like the artic fox that changes its coat color seasonally.. Hmm.. I want to believe, but think we’re being suckered.. 🙁

  6. MisterMonster responds:

    I believe that videos like this present the cultural impact Bigfoot has on our psyche. As long as these videos are labeled as hoaxes or entertainment, I see no reason to not post them on this blog.

  7. sschaper responds:

    I trust Loren to decide when a video might be real, and when it is obviously a hoax.
