And people wonder why I stay out of the water.
In case you’ve been living under a rock (and you’ll probably want to after you lay eyes on this thing), a massive blob-like monster just washed ashore off the coast of the island of Seram in Indonesia. Video footage of the unidentified creature/monster/thing has mostly come courtesy of a local by the name of Patasiwa Kumbang Amalatu, whose uploads to YouTube today have positively gone viral. And it’s not hard to see why. Because nobody is quite sure what the hell he even captured footage of.
Here’s what we know. This thing is MASSIVE. Measuring 50-feet, it’s the size of a large passenger bus, and it’s decaying under the hot sun and spilling guts and copious amounts of blood into the water. Some have speculated that it’s either a giant squid or a super-sized humpback whale, but if it’s either of those things then I’d like to know why the hell it looks like it exploded from within. This looks more like viral marketing for Pacific Rim 2 or maybe the next Cloverfield film than it does anything I’ve ever seen here in the real world, so it’s hard to believe it’s merely a whale.
Whenever bizarre-looking things like this are found, they’re always written off with simple explanations. But ya know, I’m just not convinced.
Watch the creepiest ever found footage below.
