Stabilised footage of unidentified subject filmmakers believe to be Bigfoot

Stabilised footage of unidentified subject filmmakers believe to be Bigfoot

The footage has been circulating for over fifty years

We all love a good urban legend, don't we? There's something about discussing the possibility of UFOs or the Loch Ness Monster that brings out people's inner conspiracy theorist.

And Bigfoot is no exception to this rule.

For decades, followers of the hairy humanoid have only had fleeting glimpses of the legendary figure.

One such piece of evidence is the Patterson-Gimlin film which was shot in 1967.

The footage, captured in California by Roger Patterson and Roger Gimlin, appears to show Bigfoot strolling through a forest.

A common criticism of the footage was that it was far too shaky to be definitive proof of the Sasquatch's existence.

But now, the footage can be seen in a stabilised form.

The footage has divided opinion for over fifty years.

Anddddddd, it still looks like a man in a gorilla suit. But maybe that's just me.

People on the internet have a lot of thoughts about the footage, and it's safe to say that there are still some believers out there.

One Bigfoot follower wrote: "If you say it's fake, provide proof of reason why it's fake."

However, most other people were more skeptical about the validity of the footage.

One cynic remarked: "The people who think this is real are also the same people who don’t believe the moon landing was real."

Bigfoot has seemingly eluded humans for decades.

That comment alone set off a whole other set of arguments.

A fellow non-believer commented: "Every trait it has is human except the costume. It's not bigger than a human, it's not faster than a human, it moves like a human. Yet, you want us to believe that somehow it's the most elusive animal we've ever seen?"

Well... when you put it like that.

Fear not Bigfoot followers, there's still hope yet.

One man has even been lauded as having caught the best footage of the elusive beast to date.

Josh was out in the wilderness of Tunica, Mississippi, when he filmed a video of a supposed Bigfoot creature.

Estimating the creature to be at least seven feet tall, Josh claimed that he initially thought he was looking at a hog - until it stood up.

People applauded him for sharing his sighting with the world.

One admirer said: "THE BEST VIDEO TO DATE. AND IT'S 8 YEARS OLD! Congratulations Josh. You've held the record for some time now."

"It looks so natural, like it's in its element," added another, "When you hear the crack of the wood when it rips it out it sounds like it's got some real strength.

"Pretty convincing... one of the best BF videos I've seen."
