YouTube has become a popular – and growing – source for Bigfoot clips, aptly dubbed “Tubesquash”. This has its positive sides, and
The positive side is that people can upload their Bigfoot clips anonymously because they don’t want to be ridiculed by doing so publicly. It is a
great source for clips we wouldn’t have seen otherwise, or at least not without great effort.
The bad side is that the quality of YouTube videos is horrible. And many of the clips are recorded with cellphones so by the time we get to see them,
we can’t see anything, so to speak. And hoaxers have Carte Blanche, of course.
We get at least one YouTube Bigfoot a week, and more than often these threads are called “Another Youtube Bigfoot”, “Yet Another
YouTube Bigfoot” and so on. Which makes it a bit difficult to refer back to these videos after a month or two – because there are no usable
key words in these titles or even the rest of the threads. Thus a posting convention would be in order. When posting a YouTube Bigfoot video (or even
other material of sorts) use sighting specific detail in the title. Date and location would be a great start, for example:
“YouTube Bigfoot video: 1/2/2012 – London, England”
If neither of these two details is available the video clip looses credibility and usability. You can still be a bit creative like giving the sighting
a name. We all know the “Patterson-Gimlin Footage”, but very few people know the date and location the film was made. Thus if a Bigfoot
video was posted by Peter Pan, you can always call it the “Peter Pan Bigfoot Footage”. There is no reason to call it “Another blurry
Bigfoot behind a tree video”. If we can use these guidelines, referring back to threads after a couple of months, would be much easier.
