UK Humanoid Video

Posted by: David Weatherly on October 13th, 2013

A video of a strange humanoid figure running across a highway in the UK has been posted by the Altered Dimensions site. The thirty three second video was captured by CCTV cameras. The figure moves rapidly across the four lanes of traffic and at first glance appears to be an animal. On closer inspection however, the figure does not seem to match any known animal.

According to sources, authorities spoke with officials to determine if the video was a hoax:

“We checked with local authorities who oversee the CCTVs in this area and this is not faked. They say it is genuine footage. This creature was filmed on CCTV running across a motorway in the UK.”

It’s unclear exactly where the video was filmed. If the footage is real, it’s an intriguing find. View the original footage here:

Was this a strange intruder of some sort?

    Saw this the other day, VERY FREAKY!

  2. Joshua Isley via Facebook responds:

    It isn’t humanoid, it isn’t even a biped. It’s clearly a quadruped and most likely a deer or some such animal.

  3. Derek Markle via Facebook responds:

    This video is so old. It was confirmed fake years ago.

  4. Connor Hutton via Facebook responds:

    yea it’s fake…although it could easily have been an escaped greyhound or something

  5. TheBeardedMan responds:

    An emaciated deer? It’s movement is very much like that of a deer.

  6. alan borky responds:

    My suspicion David going by its flowing undulating motion’s it’s a squirrel [not unlike the one which visits our garden] or just possibly a whippet which someone’s quite skillfully Gollumed up.

  7. Goodfoot responds:

    If that’s “squirrel” it’s over six feet long, which would be a cryptozoological wonder in itself. There’s no fur, no tail. I suppose if you’re a determined skeptic, you’ll call it any absurd thing, but it doesn’t make you right.

    It’s extremely humanoid in appearance, and deer legs don’t bend backwards at the knee like that.

    This is a genuine cryptid, IMO, and it has a humanoid form.

  8. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    I miss the days of cryptids on this site.

    Looks like CG.

  12. skeptik responds:

    Don’t let the CCTV camera resolution fool you. It looks like a humanoid (gollum-like) creature because of the poor conditions and resolution. Remember, this is a CCTV cam and not a high-def recording.

    My bet is a deer. What animal does this and runs like this? A deer.
    But it could also be a runaway Afghan Hound.

  13. Caddyfan responds:

    I thought it could be a greyhound-like dog, if it’s legit at all.

  14. bobhelferstay responds:

    It moves like a deer, but it sure doesn’t look like one.

  15. Peltboy25 responds:

    If it’s a real animal, it’s not a deer. There’s no neck. And the legs (both front and rear) are articulated in a manner that is simply not canine or any other quadruped.

    My guess is it’s either faked (CGI or a doctored traditional animal) or a very curious piece of video indeed.

  16. TheBeardedMan responds:

    Wouldn’t the driver hit the break pedal when this creatures suddenly passes in front only a few meters away? It leads me to believe it might be faked. (CGI?)

  17. Goodfoot responds:

    Not if the “break pedal” is broken.

  18. cryptokellie responds:

    As I posted prior, I definitely believe that this is a CGI image as the shadow of the figure on the roadway is not a correct shadow for headlights. Headlights being two overlapping beams of light will cast a blended but double shadow in slightly different angles away from the figure. With distance the blending becomes more apparent but the figure is right in front of the vehicle as it passes. The figure crosses the beam of the right headlight without casting any shadow at all. Also as previously noted, the driver must be asleep as he/she takes no defensive action of any kind but in fact seems to be accelerating down the roadway as if nothing was there…most likely, nothing was. I will admit the clip is effectively creepy with highway lighting.

  19. G. de La Hoya responds:

    Spielberg would be impressed. I am not.

  20. mandors responds:

    The best look you get is at the 3 second mark, before “it” jumps the median and then scrambles in front of the car. And then at 4, right before, it crosses the car.

    The rear legs are bent not inconsistently with a dog, but you pause in just before the car comes, you see what looks like the black outline of deer’s lower leg. Unfortunately, you also see a line across its backside that looks like the waistband of blue jeans. The front legs are also not inconsistent with those of a deer.

    It is strange that when it runs in front of the car, there is no reaction from the driver, even though “it” is in the car’s headlights. No break, so swerve, not “holy *&^%! what was that!” stop. If it was odd, you’d think they’d do something, if just a deer or dog, probably not.

    Don’t know what it is, but I see no reason why someone couldn’t just photo/video shop a deer running across the highway to make it look odd.

    Found this.

  21. Alamo responds:

    I’m leaning towards CGI as well. The back legs are humanoid/ bipedal in length as well as the way they are attached and the way they bend, yet the mechanics of the leap over the median are quadrupedal. The form doesn’t match the way it moves.

  22. Goodfoot responds:

    It’s a good thing cryptids always follow the rules!

    No, you’re probably right.
