Totally scripted.

Down to the girl being the producer of the film.

"Let's not chase it, roll it back"

who the hell talks like that?

If it was me it would have gone down like this.

"F the camera, grab the gun, there be some good eating tonight!"

Roll it back...sheesh!

I thought it was fake at I still do, only because their actions and words seemed "rehearsed" a bit. But what do I know, that thing definately looked like a monkey or some huge Squirrel like the Black Giant Squirrel, however, the black giant squirrel is not native to America (to my knowledge). But it looks too tiny to be any kind of squirrel, I would say if this video is real that it could be a monkey that escaped, abandoned, or something else.

But to me, the video is faked.

It's what's commonly referred to in Australia as a drop bear. Very dangerous.

I kid.

This is a hoax from a couple of years ago. It didn't get much attention back then because it was almost instantly outed as a hoax. I'm sorry, but it was so long ago that I can't remember any of the details. I did a quick search or two, but couldn't find what I was looking for. I'll do an in-depth search as soon as I've got a couple of free minutes.

I didn't even have the sound up (at work) and I knew it was scripted. I don't know how to explain it except they have that "it's scripted but try to make it look like genuine actions" demeanor. Kind of like the ones you find in Blair Witch and Cloverfield.

Here you go:

It's name is Labou and it's from Louisiana.

Protect the Labou.
Louisiana Wildlife Foundation

I know. Disappointing, isn't it.

Edit: And just for good measure I'll add a link to Cryptomundo.

Most of you aren't old enough to remember the dreaded long-tailed snipe. Oh yeah. Many late-night excursion were attended in college seeking this elusive creature.

Snarkiness aside, my BS filter got a tad oversaturated watching this production. There is far too much set-up initially without giving a reason for the filming. The dialogue seems a hair contrived as well. It doesn't feel real to me, unless of course, this is the first film documentation of the dreaded long-tailed snipe.

The foregoing was merely my opinion, and does not reflect the stance of management, other members, mods, or my two cats.

The cats have never seen a snipe.

Ahh You beat me to the snipe hunt. We used to do that to the new kids in Summer Camp.

That video clip makes the Blair Witch look good. I wonder who was manipulating the puppet.

I can't even believe that this thread is still open.

Are you saying the video is a hoax, or is the Labou a hoax? or both.
Why is the Louisiana Wildlife Foundation involved, (since they reported it) or are they hoaxy as well? Can you elaborate a bit more.

must agree with you , wierd loops if anything , might be a gimmick to raise money

It's a viral advertisement for a kids movie.

Back at the ranch......................

Ok Jimmy, here's the deal. We're going to go down the river here and herd the snipe in your direction. You stay here with this burlap bag and when it comes running in your direction, catch it in the bag.

Don't worry.

We'll be right back.

I agree, it really seems like they're bad actors. Also, the critter does seem to resemble a frilled neck lizard.

Ironically, it's the creature which comes across as the most realistic thing in this video. At least to me.

That was awesome

That chick wasnt to bad looking, pity it was really fake though

btw, that looked nothing like a frill necked lizard. I use to have one living at my work in Darwin, they simply dont look even close to that thing

I wondered about the "bad acting" are they just bad actors, or good amateurs. If a hoax, they played the scene pretty ok, but the "leave me to die " bit seems a bit too soon a reaction. Pity they didn't think to paint the Labou green.

no. no it wasn't it's retarded.

spend your CG/VFX/Comping skills doing something more productive like faking an actual car in traffic or other mundane objects... that's where the challenge really lies.

not on stupid rehearsed overacted BS...

it's so 08'.

I was wondering if it was actually the fabled boogerben, which haunts the wild, drunken imaginations of southern youth while camping.

And just for the record, to make sure that the long tailed snipes actually come your way, the "bagger" needs to make the long tailed snipe's mating call. (insert halarious and embarassing noise here).

This is to cover the distant echos of laughter from the guys drinking all the beer just down the road.

It was a viral movie made for the Labou movie, i.e. a hoax. The websites are all fake.
