The video is from a story about a "sighting" of South Carolina's Lizard Man, not the Kentucky story. Why they associated it with the Kentucky story is, well, an Unexplained Mystery.

Really? They are hysterical! We had whole dinosaur families roaming around here ... plus it’s one costume that doesn’t get messed up if you have to wear a coat. Probably not going to get mistaken for a cryptid though, a yard inflatable decoration; maybe.

I took a walk last night, and saw a strange, glowing creature. It turned its head and looked right at me. Then it suddenly went dark, along with all the other holiday decorations in that yard.

They've switched to Meth in Eastern KY these days.

There's a part of me that really, REALLY, wants these sightings to be legit. Why? I have no clue, I just do, lol.

But then the realization comes that virtually everyone carries a high quality camera in the their pocket these days, and it seems most people can't wait to get their slice of YouTube gold these days to the point that entire large groups of people will record someone getting the snot beaten out of them without a single one of them even considering calling 911...

Yet there is never any video proof of any of these "sightings"? Makes the 'they were high as a kite and hallucinating" seem much more plausible...

A search on Youtube suggests their primary purpose is freaking out pets.

The kind for Halloween from dept stores are pretty humorous. However, some, especially ones that are custom-made for elaborate pranks, can be pretty realistic, unexpected and startling. Note the human legs in the video.

Yeah nice to see Bigfoot is still big and blurry. lol There is no excuse for fuzzy video anymore with these smartphones. It worked in the 60s, not anymore.

That is a very realistic looking dinosaur! I have to wonder if the pranksters would have saved the video if the heart of their subjects stopped? https://www.livescience.com/52573-ca...of-fright.html
