Yeah, I saw this one pop up, I was tempted to bump this thread with it but I decided not to. It's fake, of that I'm essentially certain, the video
was uploaded by an account with no prior activity (anyone know if there's a way to view account creation date on Youtube?).
Here's what I find odd: this video was uploaded with a title in Russian and English. My original secondhand source was apparently originally in
Spanish, but it's clearly the same "subject" at a different location. However, on page 4, someone seems to have dug up another Russian source for
the original, which is making me think this whole thing has the potential to be the work of one hoaxer. Here's what's weirding me out, though:
that's two years or more between releases, and there's no sign of what exactly the purpose behind this is. I know hoaxes are often pulled just to
show that it's possible, but you don't often see a cooling-off period that long, especially with no leading along as hoaxers are wont to do.
The other thing is that while this is a quite apparent fake, I feel like it may well be based on an actual phenomenon (not bloody Slenderman, either).
There's the famed Fresno "stick-walkers," and the Fortean Times forum
