Another thing to take into consideration here is that most of us have never seen the film anywhere near the original copy. Apparently, the original
16mm print is pretty clear and has relatively high definition. It would be nice to get higher resolution images to see what was really going on.
I agree that padding might flex and move in a particular way that would look like muscles.
The problem, though, is that as you start to add up all the alternatives to what "might" have happened, you start to get real close to old Occam's
Razor, which is double-sided. At a certain point, you reach a level where the number of chance things required to debunk the image and the story
become more unlikely than the story, itself.
It's not positive proof, by any means. But there is a point at which a "swamp gas" explanation is just too far-fetched. (Secret Bigfoot suits
that nobody has a photo of, foam that moves like muscles, people hiding out in the deep woods to pop out at just the right time, etc.) And at that
point, it's probably best to just shrug, put it all back in the file and wait to see if more evidence pops up later.
