Over the past few months, I’ve argued for people using dashcams to catch cryptids in the act of being… well, cryptids.
Someone going by the handle AnythingWhatever has uploaded some blurry, dark footage of a purported bigfoot outside of Sundance, Utah. While the folks behind this footage might not win that coveted cinematic award, this demands scrutiny. Take a peep at the original, unedited footage.
AnythingWhatever, being an inadvertent, yet conscientious, ‘squatcher slowed it down, followed by a slowed and stabilized version, then a slowed down, stabilized, and zoomed video.
I COULD KISS THESE PEOPLE!
On one hand, the slowing and stablilizing of the video doesn’t do them any favors. Looks like a guy in a thrift-store monkey suit.
On the other hand, if they’re just begging for attention why pander to cynical debunkers who’d agree with my first conclusion?
On the gripping hand, maybe the folks behind AnythingWhatever are trying to viral market something akin to the Blair Bigfoot Project?
Context for the video is sorely needed. Had they posted a full length video, even if it’s long, boring, and drawn out like the opening of Manos: The Hands of Fate, there’d be a strong case to be made for this being the real magilla, not a gorilla (suit).
