My father believes in mermaids...

Postby Nicholas » May 5th, 2012, 12:45 pm

No, seriously I'm not joking or being sarcastic in any way. My father really believes in mermaids after seeing this video on his laptop: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plXYotws ... ture=inbox

Ok, I'm a Christian and I believe in God and the bible, but I DO have my limits. I know mermaids aren't real, and that video is fake. because I doubt anyone would stay so calmly in the water after seeing something like that approaching you. Also, as the video owner states, the fishes are not afraid of that mermaid thing. possibly because that mermaid thing was done with photoshop and wasn't really there. And if that isn't enough, the footage is too short to be real. I mean, the one who recorded it on tape stopped filming after having a good sight of it, only to be followed by that thing swimming away from him.

then again, I have to admit that I must give the video owner some credit for deceiving most of the gullible youtubers. It has been made/edited so pretty that it seems almost hard to prove it as a fake.

so, what do you guys think about this? leave me your opinions please.

I personally don't believe that mermaids exist and think that looks fake.

well, I agree that it is a fake. however, I disagree that it looks fake. Whoever made that, must be an expert when it comes to photoshop, computergraphics, and stuff like that.

Oh yeah, I have to agree that it's well done. But IF it were real then I'd think the fish would've reacted to it being there, and not remained quite as calm as they appear in this video.

The 'mermaid' looks like a 3d animation cut from a movie and blue screened over onto a basic sea background which is why the fish aren't afraid.... because it's not there. Also note, there are no kind of shadows/ripples while it swims. And obvs you would have more of a reaction if you saw something like that swim over you... Hmm..

As for the one found after a hurricane... That looks like one ugly model. How it's landed... that's not anatomically possible xD

The "mermaid" has a zipper. Zippers are a human invention. Case closed.

Lol ok, so now I actually need to convince my father, a nearly 50 year old man, that mermaids don't excist? :lol:

Yeah, I think this the most fake thing I have ever seen. The first mermaid as they show was literally at the surface; therefor it would have splashed air into the water from contracting its fin to move. It really looks like a green screen trick. ;)
