Bigfoot? Watch The Most Fake Video Of All Time!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Shelby man says he has captured video of Bigfoot.

"Thomas Byers e-mailed NewsChannel 36, saying he saw Bigfoot walk across Golden Valley Church Road in Rutherford County Tuesday evening.


Byers` says he was about 15 to 20 feet away from the creature when he captured a five-second video."

Technology, especially when it comes to video equipment, has grown by leaps and bounds.

A child using an inexpensive camera can post HD high quality videos online. But why is it that whenever somebody releases film of Bigfoot to the media the image is always grainy and fuzzy? Could it possibly be that 100% of these Bigfoot clips are fake, and the photographer deliberately makes the image blurry so you can`t tell that it`s really a dude wearing a gorilla costume?

This is perhaps the most fake video of all time. Bigfoot appears to be waving, and he hitches up his costume so he won`t trip and fall.

Why did WCNC feel compelled to report this as a legitimate news story? The unnamed reporter doesn`t express any skepticism, and he doesn`t have his tongue in his cheek.

Here`s the video, make up your own mind:
