Bizarre 'goblin' video surfaces online

The highly dubious video footage shows a small humanoid creature running across someone's floor.
The video, which has been picked up by the media more than once over the years, was allegedly recorded in a remote part of Argentina where a mother was filming her young son.

After a few seconds a strange goblin creature appears from the doorway on the right and scurries in a hilarious fashion across the room before disappearing behind the furniture on the left.
The woman taking the footage lets out a yelp and goes to look behind the dresser but finds nothing.

The video, which is almost certainly a hoax, has been covered by dozens of news sites with some claiming that the boy had been visited by the creature on a regular basis.

Exactly who created the video and for what purpose however continues to remain a mystery.

Horrible Hoax, you can clearly see the left side of the baby's face is distorted just before the goblin runs out. This is clear case of CGI melding, BAD melding at that.

This is actually true and not a hoax.If you view the whole video clip in Youtube even the boy looked at where All the mom has to do is to point to a spot and say "Hey! What's that over there?" to make it look like the kid looked at the thing. Either way the kid doesn't even look until well after the object passes by and only crawls away after being directed to. Very fake....sad that some people are so desperate for attention that they post silliness like that for all to see.

Why did this resurface now? Because that's what happens on the internet. An old news story gets picked up and published and before you know it everyone else features it too and it does the rounds again, it becomes viral, probably for the umpteenth time. Also not everyone has seen it before, to some the story is 'new' however old it is. It's at least 10+ years old? No, it's 4 years. This controversial video was a cellphone recording back in 2011 http://www.unexplain...howtopic=272307

Brilliant video. Encounters of such creatures are fairly common in that part of the world. It's probbaly a duende. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duende_%28mythology%29#Latin_America

This looks even more fake now than it did when it first surfaced. Its a CGI effect, and not even a very good one.
