Can somebody screen shot it for me?

That would be most appreciated. I love a good hoax.

Funny how the body seem to be decomposing but the hair is so live and vibrant as if she just came for a salon.

give me an H
give me an O
give me an A
give me an X

what's that spell?

About 95% over videos being churned out these days, that's what!

I tried to take some screenshots that are most relevant in my opinion. The red blur is just me hiding the host's url since I don't feel like advertising for that site.

Cute sculpture. I say Juan did it.

Looks like a dressed up wood carving to me in all honesty.

I'm calling fake.

theync is not for the faint hearted so dont go visiting it even if you feel slightly intrigued by what it is because you may never be the same again.

back on topic
Looks to plastic to me, to casual aswell on the cameramans side.

Yes. I was just trying to figure out the source of the video and was expecting to find a shady source but didn't expect to find that big a cesspool.

Completely off topic side note - awesome banner. Nightbreed is a cult movie.

Thanks, I've always loved creature/monster/alien girls and Shunna Sassi is a personal favorite, I'd love to see a Nightbreed sequel but it'll probably never happen.

Back on topic I don't believe mermaids exist or ever did but I'm also aware that we've barely scratched the surface of ocean exploration so who's to say what we'll find out there given enough time.

Looking from another perspective: You can see how the pelvis sticks out, and is attached to the spine. I would'nt expect an all water being, to withstand the amount of stress on the pelvis-spine attachment, without suffering a lot of strain on the joint itselves.

Notice how dolphins (Whales, fish, etc) don't have a pelvis, and can move their spine up and down without doing any strain to joints.

A pelvis would mean a creature couldn't swim properly - Eg. a mermaid.

Clearly Fake a Mermaid lol

The Fx of the mermaid's face makes me think of the face of the other hoax video of mona lisa apollo 20 EBE video.

They probably used the same process for the mannequin lolol

100% Hoax

They got lazy on doing the hair.

I give them a B+ for great work on the rest of the sculpture!

Yeah, I do not see this as even remotely real. As the OP pointed out the camera man is amazingly calm for someone who just stumbled upon the discovery of the millenium....

Try to imagine how you would be acting if you were just walking along the beach filming and stumbled upon a dead mermaid... You would probably be excited, maybe a bit scared or creeped out, and you would not be calm as if you had seen a million of them before.

I just don't buy it...

Forgot to say that I did once see a mermaid hoax in person once. It was at an alligator farm in Arkansas. They had this thing that the claimed to be a small mermaid and it was dead and enclosed in a glass case.

I got the owner to tell me what it really was though... It was something that he bought from a taxidermist years ago. The guy simply combined a fishes bottom half with a spider monkeys top half....

Anyway, yeah, this is not real. Kind of a cool fake, but still a fake

the upper body that resembles a human shape has no breathing organ visible to be an aquatic form of life, unless mermaids live near the surface to breath through lungs... in which case, we should have seen thousands of these guys on the water due to their need for oxygen.

next time you make another one of these, try it with a pair of gills. it will make more authentic feel to it

this has been posted on here at least 1 billion times, its a fake. It's actually a sculpture done by an artist, although I don't remember his name right now.

Let's set aside the by-now established fact that this is an art piece, and treat it as if we didn't know any better.

Also, marine mammals do not have gills, but breathe through the nose, so that's no error at all in this mannequin. Cetaceans have blowholes on the tops of their heads, while seals and manatees breath through a pair of nostrils on the front of their muzzle, just like dogs. So, we don't care that this "creature" doesn't have gills.

Also, we don't care that we've never seen one before, because new marine species are periodically discovered, such as the two new rorqual whales discovered in 2003.

Although a few others have cited the wig-like hair as the giveaway, the real giveaway is the tail. Why would a mammal have a fish's tail, and not the tail of a marine mammal? We know it's fake just by looking at the tail. The tail has the tell-tale radial bones of a fish, like you would see on a tarpon or striped bass or snapper. No mammals, whether marine or terrestrial has this kind of fine "fish bone" bone structure radiating from the coccyx. In fact, cetaceans (whales, dolphins) and pinnipeds (seal, walruses, etc.) don't have tails that radiate from the coccyx at all, but are instead adapted leg bones that form on each side of the tail bone, where the coccyx is visible as a protruding nub between each fluke (cetaceans) or flipper (seal). The dugongs, of course, have a completely different paddle-like tail.

This art sculpture is, in fact, a composite of the anatomy of fish and human woman.
