A strange creature was apparently spotted by an adventurer hiking in Oregon, USA, on Dec. 2nd, 2013. What are the odds this is actually real? What do you think? And why does it seem to wave at us 17 seconds in?

Dang, I know this is from something but I can't place it. I dunno if it's viral marketing or someone having fun with some video editing software.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

So they - whoever was filming just let that man on the bike ride right past it without warning him? And he didn't see it but just rode on by? Meh, I don't think so.

Fun clip though, thanks SW.

I hate to be that guy but there's a part in the video that stands out as CGI to me. When the video is zoomed in and the creature turns to the left of the screen, it sort of looks like it just pivots on the spot. Like twisting a 3D model.

It's been a while, but it reminds me of one of those character models from Warcraft.

Crystal clear image too! Nothing to hide, there. Must be real.

I can definitively say that it is NOT bigfoot.

Pretty amazing what people expect us to believe. My first thought was that it looked like an animated display in some museum, cut and pasted into the video, but I wouldn't argue against CG.

Definitely a case of CGI. The creature model is much 'brighter' than the surroundings and weather would allow it to be. Also, it's movement and posture are not in accordance with gravity, physics and biomechanics.

It's a well done amateur clip, but that's all.

That's pretty bad. I know this has already been said several times, but it's definitely CG.

Never minding how it looks, I wouldn't imagine it was real because it's just kinda flailing its arms about. A creature would be doing something purposeful: picking things up, eating, grooming.

Must be fun to make this kinda stuff though.

Well now, if you were seeing something this incredible in the woods, how come youre not saying "OMG" or stronger variations that rhyme with duck? Not much camera shaking either, BUT... was it such a 'ordinary sighting' that the cameraman casually pans away to capture....a cyclist?  Who else would do that if seeing a creature in the woods?
