Today in Bigfoot History | 1999 | Gimlin Hangs up on WIRED Magazine

Bigfoot Lunch Club

Bob Gimlin did not even dignify the accusation that the bigfoot in the P/G film was a costume. The arrow points to where skeptics believed a zipper was exposed.

“I was there. I saw [Bigfoot]. The film is genuine. Anybody who says different is just trying to make a buck.” –Bob Gimlin’s response to WIRED Magazine before he hung up on them.

This is a “Today in Bigfoot History” update to the zipper story from January 11th. Once Cliff Crook and Chris Murphy claimed to have seen a zipper-like shape on the costume, it created ripples among the community. At the time, it was a polarizing event among bigfooters.

It is ironic Cliff Crook is accusing anybody of an inauthentic picture of Bigfoot. After all, he was the man behind this picture…

WIRED Magazine did some great journalism, getting reactions from respected P/G film proponents like Ray Crowe and Grover Krantz. They even ask independent imaging experts from Pegasus Imaging and Adobe, who both agreed an anomalous blob can be interpreted as anything.

Read the WIRED magazine article at and find out what caused Bob Gimlin to end the interview and hang up abruptly at Bigfoot Lunch Club.

  1. Goodfoot responds:

    The aptly-monikered Cliff Crook. I’ve never thought the Crook photo even looked like a photograph, having never seen the original. Loren, did you ever see it? To me, it looks more like a painting. Or maybe a photograph of a painting.

  2. Loren Coleman responds:

    It was pretty well determined that Cliff Crook Wild Creek photo was of a little replica in a creek.
