Bigfoot Footage Stabilized and Reveals the Fakery
The infamous "Patterson-Gimlin" film footage of "Bigfoot" has been stabilized using a computer program. No other changes were made to the footage other than stabilizing the jerky hand-held movement that gives the images that air of authenticity...especially if one is somewhat gullible or already predisposed to be searching for confirmation evidence of some already deeply held belief.
Stabilizing the film makes it extraordinarily obvious that it was simply a man in a gorilla suit. It truly is amazing how the human brain reacts to visual imagery such as the jittery original footage. As our eyes and brain are processing what we are looking at, we see inhuman movement and details that made this small clip pretty much the best evidence out there of Bigfoot.
However, it is so clear when the footage is stabilized and makes the original joke so obvious that any viewer of this footage will find himself laughing out loud at the silliness of the whole thing.
Check it out.
