Lol... I would say a certain hoax. Why? Because in the slow-mo, it look like 2D sprite following the camera POV... The position is the same, but the sprite re-orient itself so it become closer to the pole without actually moving. A 3D object do not behave like this. Not to mention the slow mo look much clearer than it should be: its clearer than still photos of UFOs and aliens!
Many think that it could be somebody with a costume, but a closer look at the video shows that there is fire on its head. We commented about the video on our blog, and Marcus Pontes soon disclosed that he knew "the explanation for the 'flaming head'. Some years one Brazilian moviemaker wanted to make a terror movie with the "curupira", and he floded the Internet with videos and other false information to create something of an urban legend. I do not know how the project ended, but you can see here another fake clip". Shortly after Marcus found the original blog where the moviemaker divulged its videos and disclosed it to be a film: neminventonemaumento.zip.net...
Alexandre Camargo also commented on the discussion list of CeticismoAberto : "I did not know this clip, but it really is a digital work: the "creature" is the main personage of a short terror movie produced by the 'Trattoria di Frame' (in São Paulo), where I worked some years ago. The designer of the creature is the artist Eduardo Schaal".
Thanks to Marcus Pontes and Alexander Camargo for clarifying the origin of this digital work. Visit the original blog about the "curupira" for more videos and images: neminventonemaumento.zip.net...
