Boat wakes travel sideways from their source. This is moving in a straight line forward. Anyone can see that something other than a boat made this

You obviously didn't watch the video. In any case, your post makes no sense. Boat wakes in fact 'move forward'. Yes, they might originate from a
sideways, or near sideways, position, relative to the boat as a source, but in essence all boat wake moves forward when you take the boat out of the
Now, you should actually watch the video. Stop it anywhere from the start to about 3 to 4 seconds. See all those corduroy lines stretching plain as
day from the bottom of the screen towards the top? That's boat wake.
Now look where those corduroy lines, i.e. the boat wake, come to an end. They end exactly where the 'monster' is "moving forward", which is the
same direction as the clear-as-day boat wake we have lined up and moving forward, from right to left.
These irregular wake/wave patterns are formed by either convergence of another smaller, harder to see boat wake which has moved in from another
direction entirely and met up with the obvious wake at the start of the video, or is converging with some form of current/eddy, or is a result of the
boat starting up from go to whoah so to speak from a floating position, making a turn at the start and creating an eddy, then straightening up and
leaving those perfect corduroy lines.
How anyone could think this is anything other than boat wake is fascinating.
The video only got airplay solely because they are humoring the kids who took it, and having a bit of fun to perpetuate the 'legend' of a seamonster
for tourism and/or as a filler on a slow newsday. They know it's boat wake. We know it's boat wake. No harm in letting kids think it's a
seamonster, just as people let kids still today think santa is real, with occassional news stories of santa being spotted here and there.
