Bigfoot Provo Canyon video is worthless

This story is silly, but it also qualifies as VERY DOUBTFUL NEWS. Since it’s going round the inter-tubes, I feel obliged to post it here.

But, instead of the Fox News or Examiner version, I chose this one because it’s fair.

Going viral: Bigfoot sighting? | Seattle’s Big Blog – seattlepi.com.

Maybe Bigfoot has decided that we are just too darn liberal in the Northwest and likes the conservative climate of Utah better.

Making the rounds is a video taken by campers in Provo Canyon, Utah. Through the brush you see what looks like a bear, but then seems it might be something else.

Or as the person who took the video said: “The monster stood up and looked right at us.”


This video has over 3 million views with some commentators saying that it’s “proof” or has them thinking it’s the real thing. Have a look…

Really? REALLY?

I’m less inclined to think it’s a bear than an outright hoax, but I don’t know and neither do all the media outlets covering it. But WHATEVER it is, here is the bottom line…

VIDEOS OF BLOBSQUATCHES* ARE NOT WORTHWHILE EVIDENCE.

We’ve seen one after another of these black blobs moving through the woods or captured in still photos. No new one is going to be convincing.

ONLY A BODY WILL DO.

ONLY A BODY WILL DO.

ONLY A BODY WILL DO.

Classic blobsquatch. Yeah…

Oh and the Falcon Project, to hunt Bigfoot by blimp, is in the news again. To read more, go here.

    Looks like an obvious hoax to me. Fake looking fur, they run away just as it comes almost into view. One of the least “convincing” ones I’ve seen.

    Ha! What a bunch of morons. That posture and gait is not even vaguely simean. Clearly, this is a Reptilian dressed as a Sasquatch. Either that or it’s a hoax video– but, come on, what are the chances of that?

      There was so little to see I’m impressed you could even notice a posture and gate! So, you think it’s a bear then? If it’s a hoax, then a man in a suit, as a bipedal primate, would have a simian gate I assume?

    I thought this would make a splash to some degree. People love these blobsquatch videos, and there’s a cadre of people who do accept them as absolute, incontrovertible proof, regardless of quality.

    And yes, a body for sure. Though hopefully, if it ever comes to that (unlikely as it is)–it would be a living body.

    Well, they did get a body that one time… only it didn’t turn out to be a real “bigfoot”…

    You know, if you were in the woods looking for a bigfoot, don’t you think if you saw one you’d run toward it?

      Tricky… flight or fight responses kick in. Some people totally would, though. WHO WOULDN’T want to be killed by Bigfoot, RIGHT?!
