America, Meet ‘Blobsquatch’

Out in the Utah wilderness, some folks allegedly not there to film a fake Sasquatch video came back with exciting footage of an unidentified black splotch that scared them into a dead sprint. With more than 4.3 million views on YouTube, ‘Provo Canyon Bigfoot Encounter?’ has reignited the age-old controversy over whether fuzzy shapes in the distance exist or not.

The filmmakers apparently intended to get close to some deer, but:

On our way up, we thought we saw a bear, until the monster stood up and looked right at us. We ran straight to the car after that, leaving our tent and everything behind. It’s probably all still up there.

Personally, I don’t blame them for fleeing the scene. When you glimpse an ill-defined figure of some sort, you don’t question your eyes or stick around to find out if it’s friendly. Many a curious hiker has disappeared into the Blobsquatch’s lair. It’s said that he hates our highly discernible features, you know.
