Highly Questionable: Alleged Unicorn Sighting
See the unicorn in the picture? Of course not, because there isn't one. What there IS is a horse with a broken golf club taped to its head. Still, the Ontario Science Centre wants you to believe (oooor score itself some free viral advertising).
Hickey-Jones brought the footage to the Ontario Science Centre to be analyzed by experts. The Science Centre is reviewing the footage frame-by-frame to determine whether Hickey-Jones' claim is legitimate. With closer examination, Science Centre staff is hoping to establish whether or not a genuine unicorn sighting has occurred.
In the meantime, the Science Centre is asking the public to use caution if they think they see a unicorn. Do not make any sudden movements or attempt to use flash photography. Although legends of unicorns state that they are peaceful creatures, scientists worry that they may harm themselves or others if they end up on a road or highway. The Ontario Science Centre has set up an emergency unicorn hotline for the public for further information on unicorns or to report any unusual or questionable sightings. The hotline number is 416-696-3260.
So I actually called that number because I have like 40 unicorn sightings (including half a dozen pettings) to report and there were three phone prompts: 1) report a unicorn sighting 2) learn more about unicorns and 3) learn more about the Science Centre's upcoming exhibit, 'Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids'. So yeah, mystery solved. Still, what kind of wizard would I be if I didn't post every fake unicorn sighting? A way better one? Oh. ABRACADAMMIT.
Hit the jump for the video in case you want to trick your dumb stupid friends.
Thanks to Nicholas, who knows real unicorns don't go around showing themselves to asshats with crappy video cameras staring directly at the sun. They will show themselves to the door though if you're rude at a dinner party.
