I don’t know how many out there have seen this footage from Todd Standing yet, but if it’s the real deal, then Bigfoot’s existence is a done deal.

Unlike some of the other footage out there that claims to show Bigfoot, Todd’s footage is quite unique in that the animals he’s taping are very still – not running across the frame, or walking, as in the famous Patterson-Gimlin film of 1967. Also, he is shooting just the animal’s face as it sits quietly, blending into the foliage. Close-up footage, or stills, of Bigfoot’s face are unknown, to my knowledge.

Here, the motions are subtle – eyeballs moving, eyelids blinking, mouths slightly parting. I’m not an expert, but I think that this kind of subtlety would be much more difficult to fake than a running Bigfoot at a distance – it looks like Todd is right on top of these guys – it’s hard to decide which is more amazing, that, or the footage.

Anyway, take a look and decide for yourself. If this is legit, I’m sure he will be able to duplicate his technique, so I’m sure in that case more footage will be forthcoming.

I wanted to share this with whomever hasn’t seen it yet (not many I think – the view count on this Youtube video is 46 million +).  But I hadn’t seen it until a few days ago, and now I can’t get this damn song out of my head!

That’s because it’s so good, and so unbelievably funny.

This filmmaking group consists of 3 young brothers (Michael, Andrew, and Evan Gregory),  plus Sarah Fullen Gregory, Evan’s wife. According to Wikipedia, these four formed a musical group in 2007 simply called “The Gregory Brothers,” but they are most widely known for their spoof viral videos on Youtube (under the username “Schmoyoho”). These guys (and gal) are super talented. Not only do they create and record the music for these videos, but they also handle filming, splicing, and a host of other film and audio effects. And they do it all incredibly well – oh yeah, their sense of humor is top notch also, so I guess that makes them comedians as well.

The video below uses one of their favorite effects, the “auto-tuner.” This allows them to take normal speech (say, from news or interviews) and apply pitch to it, making it into a song of their choosing. Charlie Sheen has never sounded so good.

What I love most about this video is that it’s a testament to human spirit and creativity, to take something as sad and disappointing as Sheen’s PR disaster (we all remember the interviews… man, where was that guy’s agent??), to take something like that and turn it into art, art that makes you laugh out loud. You gotta love it – that’s “Epic Winning!”  Enjoy the video…
