The video, which shows the discovery of an alleged Sasquatch skull, has revealed the entire thing to be a hoax.
Yesterday we reported on the claim that the wildlife enthusiast and presenter had discovered a Bigfoot skull in the forests of British Columbia and had smuggled it back to the US through customs.
Photographs posted up on his Facebook page, which were uploaded as part of a teaser for his upcoming video about the discovery, managed to generate a great deal of interest online.
Today the full video has also been posted up (viewable below) and predictably, it turns out that the 'discovery' of the skull was never actually intended to be genuine.
Instead, Peterson presents it within the video as a "what if scenario".
According to experts who analyzed the skull based on the earlier photographs, the prop used is most likely a cast of a gorilla skull - something that is generally widely available.
The Facebook photos (minus the hoax disclosure) were evidently posted up first as a publicity stunt.
Even though it doesn't show a genuine Bigfoot skull, however, the video itself is still worth a watch.
