Escape To Blobsquatch Mountain



In this recently posted blobsquatch footage, we get all we need for a successful yawn: shakey camera work, an inability to use the zoom, and what can only be described as child actors. I have three nieces and after a recent outing to Chuck E. Cheese, lemme tell you. Kids don't behave like "Hey, Bigfoot!". If an animatronic rodent can set kids screaming, I know Bigfoot would generate a gread deal more fear. I've seen kids freak out over seeing the most innocuous things: seeing a jack rabbit, finding a spider in the corner, getting to eat pancakes for dinner. There is something inauthentic about this video, and we can't say it's Bigfoot. I mean, c'mon! He's a blurry confluence of pixels 12 miles down the road. No, my qualms are with those disaffected kids and the shoddy camera work.

Yeah, I've seen people pull out cameras to film the sky where a UFO just was and talk about it excitedly, but hey--if you don't pull it out when it's happening, it's nothing more than folklore and storytelling.

Couldn't see the big hair fella.

Autumn: Yeah, I'm all for the pulling out of the camera, and could have forgiven the less than stable shot (it only seemed to stablilize when B was gone), but those kids just didn't seem excited. They seemed like they were playing a game. As a mom, I know you know that kids can be the most unselfconscious creatures on the planet: screaming, talking over each other, maybe one would be crying. Bottom line, I don't buy into the sarcastic "Yo, Biggy! Wuz up?" casual way in which the kids shout over to the creature. As Judge Judy says, "If it doesn't make sense, it isn't true". I think that hold true here. I just don't buy it.

Adsila: It was there for about a nano second along the path among the trees. It's a total blobsquatch.
