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.

As I’ve said before, I am not a fan of the loch ness monster, however, the following video was over the top high strangeness!

This all happened to a group of people shooting a film in the style of David Lynch and led by Youtube’s Conall Melarkey on the Lough Foyle/Loch Foyle in Ireland.

What happens in this video is either completely amazing or some sort of hoax. In order to get to the bottom of this, lets go to directly to the video:

Quote from Conall Melarkey

Was shooting in Lough Foyle when this thing went past us. It was massive. Really don’t know what it was. There have been whales in the Lough before so maybe that’s what it was but Matthew was closer than we were and says it was no whale. Looks like we have our own Loch Ness Monster?! Any experts out there ?
We’re still filming so if it shows up again we’ll do our best to get a better shot of it.
Our film’s called ‘Fishing with David Lynch’, which was why I was wearing the suit (a David Lynch costume.)

Did I tell you it was freaky? Now, the question is, what the blankity blank is it? A whale? Doesn’t look like any whale I’ve ever seen. A sturgeon? Again, what kind of sturgeon looks like that? I have to say, I am truly stumped….Then again….

The way it moves through the water is awfully strange, in fact, unnaturally strange. What kind of live creature would move in such a way. It seems to glide along, one hump for about 80 yards with no alteration whatsoever, almost as if it were being towed or mechanical. Then it begins to submerge as it gets beyond the boats and as it does, it’s again not in a natural way. If you’ve ever seen the shark in Jaws submerge, you get the same feeling with this. And what about the reaction of the person in the white boat? He seems quite calm during what is probably the event of his life. In fact, he almost looks as though he’s in that specific position purposely, to monitor the whole thing. Frankly, they all look as though they are carrying out a stunt and are pleased with themselves. If you happen over to youtube, Conall is there fielding questions and seems to be in his glory.

I wish I could have picked up on what was being said. Although, at no time did any of them sound as if something unbelievable was happening right before their eyes.

So lets review:

Flag 1. We have a group of film makers.
Flag 2. They somehow witness a sea serpent.
Flag 3. Said sea serpent just happens to show itself for them.
Flag 4. The video in question has the monster just close enough to the camera to give the illusion credence, but far enough away so as to cover any issues.
Flag 5. They are making a film in the style of David Lynch, nuff said!

Now, you can believe whatever you like, but I call shenanigans on this. If I’m wrong, I’ll be the first to admit it.

    That thing is obviusly being pulled by a boat to the right of the camera , which is the reason the guy filming it went only so far to the right careffully slowing down and stopping cause if he folowed it to the right more we would see the boat pulling that thing.

  • Raven Storm

    So you have 2 boats and a video camera and no one thinks to follow it and get a closer view?

  • I’m wondering why anyone would go fishing dressed like that. A bit too formal for fishing.

    Has no one noticed that this guy’s last name is “Melarkey”? Webster’s defines the word “malarkey” as: (noun) speech, writing, or media designed to obscure, mislead, or impress; bunkum; nonsense; rubbish. Coincidence? I think not.

  • Scott_McMan

    Too obvious Denny! Frankly, I don’t think anyone is fooled by anything in the video.

    Actually, I’m glad to see your comment. Don’t be a stranger my friend!

  • Scott_McMan

    Chuck, try reading next time. Reading sometimes answers questions. Yep, reeaaading is what I’m trying to convey here.

    Of course, I’m just giving you a hard time.

  • Scott_McMan

    Umm yeaaa, it doesn’t quite work when you spit it all out in the comments.

    Come on Rocky! You were supposed to have emailed it to me. I need free stories! This searching stuff cuts into my leisure time.

    Great story though!

  • ryan
