    I video cell phone in 1997? I kinda agree with your thoughts. Though a mermaid sounds exotic, but not those nasty ones from Pirates of the Caribbean LOL.

    I saw the show, too, and I always suppose that stories like this have at least some basis in fact but it also makes me wonder what “they’re” NOT telling us. LOL

    Yeah, in case anyone was actually thinking this was real, our old friend Snopes comes to the rescue:

    I love love LOVE Animal Planet, but I really wish they’d back off the kooky stuff like this and that stupid “Finding Bigfoot” show. I’m actually embarrassed for those guys. Give me that hot “River Monsters” guy any day of the week, and if you want to run hours-long marathons of THAT show instead of “Infested!” be my guest!

    I flipped through the channels and caught a bit of it. It was a little too far fetched for me to watch, but hey it would be cool if there were mermaids.

    Damn, I thought that my dream of marrying a mermaid might actually come true. I was all set to learn about the secret hiding spot. Oh well, sometimes your dreams remain dreams.

    First off, the video phone was done in 2004, according to the diatribe presented by the scientist Paul Roberts…not 1997. So, having a vid phone in 2004 is highly probable. As for the film, it is a fake as you look to the skyline and see the birds flying everywhere as the two boys approach, but when the creature rears up there is only one line of birds in the entire skyline, flying perfectly still in the air. Despite all that, it is an intriguing look into a possible species that does exist, and it was interesting to see the POSSIBLE evolution of a branch of Humanity; the Aquatic Ape theory.

      Agreed, I really loved the idea of presenting a new species and I found the Aquatic Ape completely possible…that video just really irritated me!

    The fist bloop was recorded in 1997 … but the “footage” was made by a cell phone with camera in 2004, not 1997. Please watch the documentary again with attention.

    Yes, a lot of the show was cgi, except you are forgetting something….the VERY REAL Scientists.
    and the Largest Thing:
    NOTHING…other than whales, etc…..can BREATHE in water that deep. If they were in a Bathyscape……NOTHING HUMAN could breathe outside it. And you can TELL they were in unbreathable waters by looking at where they were. If nothing human can breathe that deep….then why is it so Hard for people to believe we are the only thing out there. Think of evolution. or animals that mutated to live on land after the ice age.
