The New Bigfoot Video

Postby ProfWag » 25 Mar 2011, 04:18

Okay, I just don't get it. There are wars all over the world, we have potential radiation in Japan, we had Castro announcing he stepped down from power 5 years ago, Liz Taylor passing, and Butler still in the NCAA Tournament, yet the number 1 searched item on yahoo all day has been the Bigfoot video. So, I'm curious, has anyone seen it who truly believes that video is legitimate? If you haven't seen it, but would like to, go to yahoo.com and search "bigfoot video" and add to their count.

Well, if this is the video you're talking about, then it's pretty darned pathetic. First, isn't Bigfoot supposed to be pretty tall? Second, did he salute the camera or was that just me? Third, what's up with the blurred picture? Do they really expect people to believe that it was just an unfortunate circumstance that led to being unable to clearly see what they were taping?

All-in-all, even if I thought Bigfoot was real, I would say this vid was a hoax.

EDIT:
Removed hyperlink as the video I'd found, while the right one, was a scam to direct users to a porn site.

Yes to both posts. My point exactly. People will do about anything for their 15 minutes of fame.

Yeah, that video is poor quality.

On the subject of Bigfoots, or is it Bigfeet? I happened to catch an episode of "Fact or Faked" the other night and it seems they have a perfectly rational explanation for at least one Bigfoot sighting and possibly most Bigfoot sightings. Their conclusion was.... (drumroll please) a "hunter" in a ghillie suit. Well, obviously not a "hunter" because they carry something to "hunt" with, like a gun and this thing (in the film footage being examined on the TV show) wasn't toting anything.

I can finally understand how a perfectly rational person could think that they saw some weird creature roaming around in the woods. Especially if said ghillie suit person was a poacher who was hell bent on not being seen or caught. As far as accounts of the smell that usually accompanies the sightings, that pretty much goes with the territory too. There's all sorts of horrid concoctions that can be purchased to mask the natural 'human smell' to fool the prey.

I'm going to buy me a ghillie suit for Halloween and lay out on my front lawn and scare the crap out of the little trick or treaters this year.

I was going to be a smart ass and ask why she needed a suit to scare the crap out of people, but she's been way too nice to me over the years. That, and I didn't want those cat claws coming out at me from my computer screen... :-)

That video looks like spam to a sex site. Is this the video PW was referring to?

I didn't follow the link so if it is, let me know and I'll edit my post. I just saw it was posted that day.

Here is a link that should work (probably have to scroll down a bit below the picture to get to the vid.)

The video is the same, but the people who hosted it in your link used it to direct traffic to a porn site.

As it stands, this video is not even worth discussing.

I agree that the video is not worth anything. It's an obvious hoax. But how or why can such a silly thing make it into mainstream news to begin with? That's what ticks me off. If a news agency is reporting on something paranormal, at least make it something that people can actually discuss.

Actually, what's most surprising about this story is that people still use yahoo!

Heeeeeyyyyyy now. I have it come up as my homepage so I can get headlines, e-mail, and search engine all in one place. I go to google and what do I get? A white page with a little blue box. Just not visually appealing and there's certainly not something to read. However, when doing a more indepth search, I do use google as it's the better search engine, just not the better homepage for me.

I must say, I enjoyed the trailer for Suckerpunch they were showing on the page. I expect it to be a mess- but looks like a quite enjoyable mess! I think I'm going to have to see that one!
