Of course it does!
I got jbondo's back on this one.
Even videos like this that are universally seen as hoaxes can be very interesting to the lay-crypto enthusiast. Because it makes you think about what
you and don't know to be true when it comes to a Sasquatch.
Why do I think this is a fake?
1) I think the "creature's" coat is too uniformly quaffed. When it turns to run, that coat swings like Heidi Klum's on a good hair day. Wild
creatures have matted and less-uniform coats.
2) The "peeking" gesture this Sasquatch makes does not fall in line with other sightings and sketches...that is to say, that movement is not
possible by a creature with significant neck musculature.
3) I don't think a wild animal turns and runs directly away from something that surprises it. That would put its pursuer directly in its blind spot
and, with no zig-zagging, would make it prey to a speedier foe. I'm not with the audobon society or anything...but that's just the way I see it.
Now all of these things were things that rang for me when I first watched the video, and some of them are things that I've never really put words to
until now. Isn't creating a library of "validity" criteria a huge part of debunking! Hoaxes give you the opportunity to do that in spades!
So thanks jbondo!
And everyone, keep the videos coming...even if they do come from a galaxy far, far away...
