One "scientific" group finally has "footage" that "proves" "Bigfoot" is "real."
The Sasquatch Genome Project, a genetics research company founded by trained veterinarian Dr. Melba Ketchum, is a "serious study" that is attempting to prove that the legendary Bigfoot exists.
And they've done it. Well, they say they've done it.
Ketchum and the Sasquatch Genome Project, with the help of Adrian Erickson and his Erickson Project, have presented "definitive" evidence that Bigfoot exists, including 111 specimen DNA samples of hair, blood and skin they say is "nothing that has been seen before in mammals or humans."
The "never before seen HD video" was shot in Kentucky and includes hair-like figures roaming the woods. And while Bigfoot is supposedly one of the most elusive creatures on Earth, Adrian claims to have captured footage of a female Sasquatch sleeping in broad daylight.
"They're a type of people, they're a human-hybrid, we believe," Dr. Ketchum explained to ABC affiliate WFAA. "And all of the DNA evidence points to that. And they can elude us, so if you get [video footage] at all, it can be fleeting."
"People have chosen not to believe it. They can't find it in their minds to think these things exist," Erickson told CBS, noting that there are thousands of these "furry people" living in the States.
Dennis Pfohl, the project's manager, claims,"We've all had experiences that have changed our lives. I mean, literally that shook the foundations of what we believe in…Things like that shake your work and you say, ‘There's gotta be more to the subject than this myth.'"
Meanwhile, New York University anthropology professor Todd R. Disotell has called the reports "a joke."
"She is a laughingstock of people that are of a community that are already kind of wacko," he continued to Houston's KHOU. "This was not reported in any scientific way whatsoever. It's complete junk science, and then she misinterprets it."
That joke has apparently cost the Sasquatch Genome Project $500,000. Which is a pretty decent budget for an indie movie. You'd think the "never before seen HD video" would look more impressive than someone in a Chewbacca mask lying in a pile of leaves. You'd also think it'd be in HD.
