Mermaids Are Real, The Animal Planet Documentary (Complete With Government Conspiracies!)

mermaids-are-real.jpg

This is an hour and a half documentary from the Animal Planet that none of you are going to watch, highlighting evidence that mermaids are real. Namely, a recording of mermaids talking to dolphins, as well as the body of one recovered from the stomach of a great white. I'd be lying if I told you I watched the whole thing, but only because I don't need to watch an hour and a half long video to know merpeople are real. I've seen one folks -- he saved me from drowning. "That was a beach lifeguard." Please, if it was just a lifeguard then why would I have tried to kiss him? "You said he was hunky." He was a total dreamcicle.

Hit the jump for the NOTE: this is entirely fake by the way. Probably should have mentioned that earlier. Still, send it to your mom and get her to forward it to everyone she knows.

Thanks to John, who also has evidence that mermaids are real, in the form of a eyewitness sketch. I thought the starfish nipples were a nice touch.

    Did anyone know that AP had to pay a fine of $500.000,00 if they didnt say it was fake and $500.000,00 if they let any officials talk about it. Make up your own mind, but i'm happy the mermaids are so clever to not make contact with a beïng so ignorent and intollerent. Let them be!

    Just watched the 2 hour movie on Animal Planet. During the credits of the special, if you pay attention, the 'documentary' states that "None of the Institutions or agencies that appear in the film are affiliated or associated with it in anyway, nor have approved its contents. Any similarities in the film to actual persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental. Though certain events in this film are fictional, NAVY sonar tests have been directly implicated in whale beachings. The bloop is a real phenomenon. There is still debate about what it may be."

    The supposed documentary comes right out and says it in the credits. None of the people in the film are real. The Dr. Rodney Webster from the University of South Florida? Played by actor Jason Cope. Also if you search Dr. Rodney on the internet you can't find any credentials other than the movie itself. That's a bit odd for a 'well-known' doctor at a University. Even if he weren't well known you could at least find him listed as faculty or former faculty at the university.

    While some things could possibly be real in the documentary, the only thing that is guaranteed as real by the documentary itself is the existence of 'the bloop' noise and the NAVY sonar tests and their effect on whales.

    a lot of things some humans don't know about. almost every mystical creature are real: unicorn, dragon, humanoids (humans that have a gift like flying or super strength ect.) witches and warlocks (vudoo kinda), mermaids, aliens, REPTILLIANS, NEPTUNIANS ( neptunians are aliens from Neptune and reptillians don't no), ect.

HER NAME WAS DESTINY FRY AND SHES 16 LIKE ME AND ONE DAY I WAS WALKING HER HOME AND WE FELT A COLD FEELING. IT WAS STRANGE. WE BOTH LOOKED BEHIND US AND WE SAW A PERSON BEHIND US JUST STANDING THEIR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET. THE FIGURE WAS IN ALL BLACK FROM HEAD TO TOE. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS GOT ME AND DESTINY'S EYE WAS HIS INVISIBLE SKIN......ANYWAY..... TO SEE THINGS YOUR IMAGINATION HAVE TO BE BIG TO SEE AND HEAR STUFF...BELIEVE IT OR NOT BUT ME AND DESTINY ARE LINKED TOGETHER AND HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL....NO I DONT HAVE HER PREGNANT. WE SHARE SOMETHING PRECIOUS....A GIFT.....THATS ALL IM SAYING FOR NOW......BUT I MOVED AWAY CUZ OF MY MOM'S JOB....MY EMAIL IS devontae.jackson78@yahoo.com

  • Today we see animal rights activists everywhere. From Green Peace attempting to hunt down a Japanese Whaling Vessel to eco-terrorists letting all the animals escape from a Country Animal Shelter and Pound and then vandalizing it. These of course are extreme and yet humans have quite a lot of empathy for animals and nature as well.

  • Ya watched that documentary... complete and utter stupidity.

    im trying to watch the video and now it says this video does not exist

  • alli

    i have the two hour video, i will post it here soon

  • Where's the two hour video that you were going to post?

  • Maybe you should have watched the whole show before spewing your uninformed and uneducated opinion.

  • maddie fore

    hi everyone. i have one thing to say about this footage that is posted right now. I watch the footage in may when it came out. Its a two hour long video not an hour an half. After two days i wanted my friends to see it cuz i found it was more intersted was the whale beaching connecting to the sonar of the navy. but when i went back to the homepage to see the two hour footage it was gone. I tried looking everywhere for the original footage but nada. instead what was replaced was this video on youtube that everone sees now. there is ALOT missing from the film that i cant find. for example the Navy officer in this video only appeared once and it talked about how navy sonar underwater were torn apart by something? well in the original footage the navy office talks alot more than that. he mention that the mermaid that the kids found which was the first; the navy didnt keep it because it was too weak, but they did find a mermaid and the navy officer said he took care of it and that they tried to keep it alive but died in 2009. He mentionthat he wasnt proud of what he did, but that footage is gone and no matter where i go i cant seem to find it. Also this video doesnt show the footage that the two kids found the mermaid on the beach and it got up and screeched at them and they ran scared. The good news is that video can still be found on youtube. Another video that they took out was the hand of the mermaid in a tank that the government keep wasnt in this film either you can still find that video too. but as for the scenes of the navy officer talking its gone cant find it anywhere. and there so much more scenes missing that i cant really explain them all. So if its fake why would they remove it and change so much from the original? They kept other films the same bigfoot and dragons. why is this one so speacial? Another thing is the webpage that they post you cant even get in like believeinmermaids.com you go to it and it say homeland security took over. it might be a hoax i don know? all i know is if its fake why would they change the video and take out the original footage? anyways if any of you can find the original two hour footage let me know.

    Yes I also saw that navy sonar apparatus that was taken apart but that the men couldn't figure out who did that! I thought that was fascinating. Yes I find it ODD that some scenes are gone - like the part where the Navy(?) man said a mer person was caught and he tried to keep it alive etc. WHY is that a big cover-up? If mer folks exist - then they exist so what? Why would anyone have a mental breakdown just because of that? On the same token- I personally can't go around saying I've had a close encounter with a mer person or I'd be thought of as mentally imbalanced.Many Mexican fishermen have seen them and described them but keep their mouths shut. Just one mor thing - Just look at the world we live in. Lot's of hostility- trashing the world - wars -most people don't even care about their own selves much less people that live inside the ocean! We are trashing our environment and their's too. Keeping facts from others etc. BUT what IF proof got out that that they do exist- would there be "racists of mer folks"? Then some crazies (yes their are crazies in this world) out to try to cage or captur or poach them!

    I watched the 2 hour special. While there are some things you mentioned in them, you got a few details wrong. Also you weren't clear on some details. "it talked about how navy sonar underwater were torn apart by something" implies that the sonar themselves were torn apart. While the 2 hour special, however, had mention that the sonar weren't quite tearing animals apart but acting as blunt force trauma to the sea life in the area and the supposed mermaids. If you aren't aware blunt force trauma is less like tearing something apart and more like say, someone punching someone. Not to say that it couldn't be serious as they were implying the trauma was to the animals. Also, the 'secret' informant from the Navy did talk about the mermaid that the kids found. He didn't say they found another though, he said that they took that mermaid and they tried to keep it alive as long as possible before it died in 2007, not 2009. He did mention that he wasn't proud, however. There was also the video of the mermaid in the tank.
    If you watch to the end, however, the credits of the 'documentary' include a disclaimer stating that none of the people (including the 'scientists') are real and that any resemblance to real people is purely coincidental. They go on to say that events in the movie are indeed faked. The only events they clarify as actual fact are the existence of 'the bloop' sound and that NAVY sonar testing has been linked to the beaching of whales.

    Also, the 'scientist' from the University of South Florida does not actually exist and was portrayed by an actor from the movie District 9 called Jason Cope. (Dr. Rodney Webster I believe his name was)

    No doubt, the reason there is a shortened version that you're talking about could either be a way to save on time, or an edited version to deal with problems because of the fallout from the 'documentary' and people being angry with Animal Planet over the fact that they imply it is real when it's not.

    While the events in the video are based in science (as in scientifically plausible) they are not real and the proof is made up for the sake of the story of the movie.

    Also, the section Mike Long talks about in his comment below was also in the 2 hour special I watched.

    The Believeinmermaids.com website, while it quotes actual sections of law as the reason for being seized, could be a joke website to support the movie. They could possibly have designed it to say that it has been seized as a humorous add on to the movie, or the website could have been actually seized because it was slanderous and breaking the "conspiracy to discredit the gov't" sections of the law in its attempts to add some publicity for the film.

    I enjoyed reading your discussion as much as Maddie's. I see your point on a possible appearing to be "discrediting the gov't". I can say that if mer people exist they sure don't want to be involved much with us. They sure do have more space to run around in too...

  • I can back this up as well. I seen the original footage and all that Maddie mentioned was indeed in it. Also though there was a part where someone was talking about a person from the team has since took off and dropped all contact with everyone and has devoted his life to proving these are real before the government finds him. I support this man enitrely and I wish I could find the original footage as well

  • People are no fun and take this broadcast way too seriously. I remember a similar TV special a few years ago on dragons. It's just entertainment folks! I only caught a small part of it on APL, but look forward to seeing the whole thing again on TV (thank you for posting the video BTW.) It would be a great idea for it to be aired annually, every April 1st. I was well aware of this programs fictional nature, but far too many hardcore skeptics have no imagination and can be militantly close minded when anything from the fringe is presented to the mainstream, even if only for entertainment value. Regardless of how fake this is, it does make you think. Speculative evolution can be an enjoyable and welcome break from the "reality" many of us are already very familiar with (the most entertaining thing about textbook evolution is that it is rewritten every so often.) Has anyone here ever read Galápagos by Kurt Vonnegut? I own a copy but haven't gotten far into it's reading. http://www.goodreads.com/book/...

  • I actually watched it and the government is shitty enough to lie and cover up a lot of things look at aliens, they still say they don't excist!!! So I do believe mermaids are real!!!!
