I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

Yes, once again, here I am on an excursion for a suitable GT article. I had gone thru the usual CGI’s, Jokes and just plain waste of time videos when I came across this Youtube upload from last month. It got fewer than 2500 hits which is a terrible shame in my opinion because I think there may be something to it. I tend to look at only those videos uploaded in the last 3 days but for some reason this happen to be next in the que after the one I had just watched.

As I half perused the video with one eye while viewing the Reelz miniseries on the Kennedy’s with the other; suddenly I saw something that forced all my attention to this video. There before me was what appeared to be the face of Bigfoot. Was this pareidolia, was I not focusing? Surprisingly it seemed to be neither, or at least not enough to convince me that I should move on. No, there was definitely something there, a face….quite possibly the face of Sasquatch.

Now I was very interested as I viewed the entire video, no less than 4 times in fact. What made it even more intriguing was that the mouth actually closes, or does it? I mean this can’t be just shadows or tree bark, right? Bigfoot here is gritting his teeth at us and then closes his mouth. I could swear it is so. However, as any good blogger should, I’m going to leave it up to you the reader.

The video itself is done by Youtuber joebblack1963. His real name is Scott and he has been doing amateur research on Bigfoot for a couple of years. This particular video was done in the Bakers Creek area of East Tennessee.

Now that you’ve seen the video I think you’ll agree that it’s worth discussion. On the other hand I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t come clean with everything. Our videographer Scott does make some pretty hefty claims; the biggest of which is that he has been interacting with Bigfoot since 2009.

Since I started this odyssey back in 2009 I have had the good fortune to document Bigfoot in photographs, video, and physical evidence (Footprints and Hair). I have a group of Bigfoot that I have had interaction with now since 2009. The more I learn about them the more I realize how little I know.

I did watch a couple of his other videos as I wondered why he was pointing his camera randomly into the trees and zooming in and out. It does appear that this is a technique he uses a lot even in videos that are just showing set ups he does in the woods. Another point in favor of the subject video is that Scott claims to have only just noticed this “face” after reviewing videos from the previous year. Yes, apparently he took this footage in March of last year. Furthermore, just like Tim Stover from my Bigfoot video of last week, I found Scott to seemingly be just as dedicated, maybe even more so.

Now I’m not going to make any claims myself but I am very impressed by this. If it is pareidolia, it’s a darn good one. Apparently it fell thru the viral cracks of the abyss which we call the interwebs. How did we miss this while other more comical videos got attention? Who knows? Wrong timing on the wrong day I guess. It’s here now though, so lets give it the once over and see if we can’t come to some sort of consensus.

    is it possible a billdy goot? billy gaots are known to hide out on small islands. what I meanare wild gaots not the doomestic r piggmy gaots. in one way it look like a persoon but i ten d to thank thats a shadow from a gooat. just like pigs have running wild in the USA so are gaots but to a leser degree. did he hear any noses? gooats are noisy they baaah a lot when disturd.

    If it’s not pariedolia, (sic?) then it seems entirely too human. The proportions are very near to human. Looks also like there’s some birch in there, which can easily be seen in certain ways. Not really convincing, more of a blobsquatch.

  • ElfishGene

    Sorry Scott but i see nothing there that can’t be explained by good old fashioned pareidolia. I’m beginning to tire of these Bigfoot/Yeti/Yowee films, they are appearing at at an alarming rate these days and i have yet to see one even slightly convincing.

    Saying that though, the kids screaming at “Bigfoot” in this video is quite entertaining.

    Interesting, but I have issue with the “accidental” part. And he just happened to know exactly where he did not “see” this 20 days (i think it was). I always want to believe, but my spidey senses on this one are pinging. it just seem to imperfectly perfect. I’m more inclined on the hoax then the pariedolia.

    The face is exactly like the cover of 2010 film Hunt the Dogman: High Strangeness in Western Kentucky

  • elhombre

    Not the worst case i’ve seen. Now some of the posts made on another forum about the Gable film they took the cake.
    Some people need medicating.

    Is there a way to get in touch with this person? I am fascinated because, I went up to Baker’s Creek in Blount County last weekend. My purpose was to photograph some ancestors’ graves at Liberty Baptist Church and at the Presbyterian church at Baker’s creek. I had a strange experience, and I would love to discuss it with the video maker. Thanks, Suzanne

  • Suzanne,

    You can email me: [email protected]

    I am very discreet and anything you share with me is kept in the strictest of confidence. I can then try and get you hooked up with the videographer, “Scott”.

  • me29

    Okay my question is why there is a Chinese Wisteria vine{white flower] blooming in the foreground.

  • Sean

    I have a videocamera, I guess I’m a videographer too?

  • Sean,

    I’ll make you a deal, when you start writing the articles then you can be the one who figures out how to keep it moving without being redundant, OK? Do you understand where I’m coming from now?

    I can absolutely see what makes this video interesting. However, I am a natural born skeptic. Here’s the only issue that I have… the frame that Mr. Black claims to be the exact same area 20 days previous… where are the trees that are seen in that frame? There is a rather large tree in the foreground from 4/10 that is not there at all in the 4/30 video. As such, I have to ask if this really is the exact same area? That being said, if it is NOT the same area, I don’t think it’s shadow and leaves as there are other areas of the frame where sunlight peeks through and the coloration is completely different. So there are enough video clues to leave questions, but that portion of inconsistency makes me question the objectiveness of Mr. Black.
