(NEW) 2013 REAL MERMAID Captured On Camera?

611 ratings | 240018 views
This video was from Animal Planet. Mermaid sighting in Kiryat Yam seen on Animal Planet. Real Mermaid Caught on Camera in Kiryat Yam, Israel. Locals and tourists in the Israeli town of Kiryat Yam have been flocking to the coast in hopes of glimpsing a creature that most people believe only exist in fairy tales. An alleged mermaid, said to resemble a cross between a fish and a young girl, only appears at sunset. It performs a few tricks for onlookers before disappearing for the night. One of the first people to see the mermaid, Shlomo Cohen, said, "I was with friends when suddenly we saw a woman laying on the sand in a weird way. At first I thought she was just another sunbather, but when we approached she jumped into the water and disappeared. We were all in shock because we saw she had a tail." The sightings apparently began several months ago. $1 million reward The town's tourism board is of course delighted with their newfound fame and local mystery fauna. Taking a cue from the town of Inverness, Scotland (on the shore of Loch Ness), the Kiryat Yam government has offered a $1 million reward for the first person to photograph the creature. Town spokesman Natti Zilberman thinks the reward money is well-spent. "I believe if there really is a mermaid then so many people will come to Kiryat Yam, a lot more money will be made than $1 million." Of course, if the mermaid does not exist -- perhaps it is a hoax, an optical illusion, or a simple misperception of a known animal -- then the town's reward money will remain safe and unclaimed, while the economy benefits from the influx of tourists vying to get a photo that will leave them set for life. It's not clear what people are seeing, though the power of suggestion and imagination can be strong. Identifying animals in water is inherently problematic, since eyewitnesses by definition are only seeing a small part of the creature. When you add in the factor of low light at sunset and the distances involved, positively identifying even a known creature can be very difficult -- to say nothing of a mythological one! Mermaids have long held fascination for seafaring peoples. There are a few dozen significant historical claims of actual mermaid sightings. Most of them are clearly myths and legends, such as "true" stories about lovely young women who married sailors but were later discovered to be shape-shifting mermaids (such as in the film "Splash"). Other reports date back centuries, and offer no proof or evidence other than a curious story. For example, a Capt. Richard Whitbourne claimed he saw a mermaid in Newfoundland's St. James harbor in 1610. Another story, from 1830 Scotland, claimed that a young boy killed a mermaid by throwing rocks at it; the creature looked like a child of about 3 or 4, but had a salmon's tail instead of legs. The villagers supposedly had it a funeral and buried it in a small coffin. P.T. Barnum's mermaid Hoaxers have worked to satisfy the public's appetite for mermaids; the fact that none have ever actually been found is only a minor inconvenience. The great showman P.T. Barnum introduced a mermaid to astounded crowd in the 1840s: his infamous "FeeJee Mermaid", actually a taxidermy fake. The head and torso of a small monkey was grafted onto the body and tail of a fish. It was bizarre and strange - --certainly nothing anyone had seen before — but a far cry from the banners and posters suggesting a beautiful, half-naked woman. Other mermaid fakes appeared throughout the centuries. Some were manatees that had been dressed up to resemble a human form and exhibited for profit. Whether the Israeli mermaid sighting is genuine, a hoax, or an innocent mistake exploited for tourism, the reality of finding a real mermaid might be different than people imagine, as shown by a song from the Newfoundland band Great Big Sea, which sings folk-rock versions of traditional sea shanties. One of their most popular songs, titled "The Mermaid," tells of a lonely sailor who courts a mermaid: "I love the girl with all me heart / But I only like the upper part / I do not like the tail!"

Those who are saying this video is fake... Dont you guys see the height at which these guys were recording the video ? There is no way any human can reach where the mermaid was seen... Look at the force of the waves ...

I'll Believe That Is A Real Mermaid If Someone Catches One Alive and Puts It In A Museum.

same question, is this video real? mermaid does exist? I'm so 😕 confused
OH HI (8 months ago)
Yajirke Melding In my own opinion , it is so difficult to edit this video and I think if they wanted to make a fake mermaid , they wouldn't go to such high place and ask someone to pretend to be a mermaid and sit on that rock as it is a cliff and it is so dangerous to be there I think . *Sorry for poor English

what I don't get is how come they don't use a camcorder?
SadisticPork (2 years ago)
I think it's a fake but cleverly done. The giveaway is the cameraman did not zoom in because if he did the CGI would be clear that's why the focus is kept in a distance so we cannot spot the effects.

FireStormBaller (3 years ago)
It's fake, the acting, the voice, the quality. And if you were recording a mermaid, you won't keep panning the camera to your friend, you would keep at it towards the mermaid and it looks nothing like a mermaid.

i agree with +miss diaz we don't even know if we have found all of the species for whales...WHALES! if we don't even know all of the species for the biggest marine animal then how do we know weather or not mermaids exist? Exactly don't push the possibility away!
susan cruz (4 years ago)
Nice try kiddos, when you discover some thing amazing , you don't even want to blink or loose sight of it. Why do you need to focus your friend's fake reaction if that mermaid was real.
TheCrunchySopa (2 years ago)
+susan cruz Absolutely true.
Jellisa Diaz (4 years ago)
8% ocean has been discovered the rest has yet to be ... we don't know what in the ocean. No one can go that far deep into it. .. I 100% believe in mermaids. Or ancestors use to draw mermaids on caves there poof out there the government has band all poof and denial it all ... fishy.. not only that what kid of human moves like that..?? I can say the same about ufos and ya believe in them? But I don't think they look like Ariel...
Minty._. Fresh (1 year ago)
Jellisa Diaz lol FACTS
Lolie Hermes (4 years ago)
This is fake. Just to be more positive.. screenshot it and put it in my editing program. there is a gap between the body and the end of the tail due to failed editing. if this was real you would know it for sure. nice try.
mintyredpanda (4 years ago)
it looked like the cgi version in M:TBF but it also looks like the reconstructed body they found. I still believe though.
Dragon Chi (4 years ago)
She went into the water and there were no ripple. If the clip were more closer and the quality is better than must be more convincing but for now I hold my believe. Thanks for sharing anyway.
Genesis Adriano (4 years ago)
If you could have tell it was a mermaid u should have zoomed it more
Scottie (4 years ago)
if I saw a mermaid and caught on a camera or whatever well I'd show it to my friends and family also from what I'm seeing on this video it seems that the mermaid or whatever it was heard those boys talking, noticed them on a cliff and swam away, also the tail the creature had was too long to be a sea lion
Michael Bornnard (4 years ago)
If that wasn't a Mermaid, then what the hell was it?!
CarlosSpartaSilveti (4 years ago)
Very good CGI - very very bad acting -.-

I think mermaids are real but this video IS A FAKE the mermaid in this video is obviously a CG and its appearance is 100% similar to the mermaid in "Mermaids The Body Found"

Asia Nguyen (5 years ago)
In the video it's small are they really small or ........?
RMH432 (5 years ago)
if you want to know the real truth behind this, search: Mermaid, The Body Found. this is scripted and that mermaid you see there is nothing more than CGI: the guys recording are actors but the mermaid is computer generated imagery.
yan layang (5 years ago)
I believe in mermaids because the time that i catching some fish, that time I saw a mermaid like the thing i saw here at this video, so the same... your believing me or not I'm telling the truth...
Lalaloopsylovers100 (5 years ago)
Exactly! If it isn't a real mermaid then how do those people get in there?
Brendan Deegan (5 years ago)
Watch the setup, listen to the script, and clocked in exactly.59 seconds. I know people WANT to believe but there has to be something better than this hack set up. Nothing to see here, move along people.
Brendan Deegan (5 years ago)
haha acting makes Keanu Reeves look like Laurence Olivier

I don't know whether those two dudes are just really weird, or just terrible actors.

I concur that thing took off in the watery turbulence like a pro, unless that "person" been practicing with that suit in the conditions of the water for awhile.

Your not allowed to swim there, so it must be a real mermaid.
Rosa Wierda (5 years ago)
it would be awesome if there were mermaids, but oh dear, that acting is really the worst ive ever seen..

It's 2013, have they never heard of an HD camera? Such bullshit.
Omnom086 (5 years ago)
YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SWIM IN THE AREA THAT THOSE GUYS ARE IN!!!!! They're at Rosh Hanikrah in Israel. I've been there myself, and by law you cannot swim there. That is definitely not someone acting, it's just those guys are ridiculous the way they sound. Not to mention, this is definitely not photo edited. Shit is just bonkers tho I think it's awesome lol
Nabil Nazri (5 years ago)
It could be CGI

The way the mermaid turn her back is creepy as shit.
James Plummer (5 years ago)
It could be real. If you look closely to how it moves, humans can't move like that. It was as if it was using its belly to move. Like seals and other sea creatures do.
Fruniefryyeah (5 years ago)
they already prooved this is fake
주니어JR (5 years ago)
I think people have a hard time believing in mermaid because of the name . It sounds fake. Maybe if the creature has a more scientific name.
EbenTv (5 years ago)
The video is probably stage? watch their acting again
"Retrograde" (5 years ago)
That's definitely but i do think mermaids exist considering the amount of unexplored ocean the world has so you never no. but this is fake you can tell straight away by the "acting" the men are doing.
pears009 (5 years ago)
You can see at the end of the "mermaids" dive, that it is "super-imposed" the splash-line(s) don't match up/there are no splash-lines form the "creature" diving into the water... It simply disappears... It's not real! (Although, I was really hoping it was...) So guys, but anyone who knows anything about "film" of photography would agree with me... It FAKE and something these guys produced on the computer, or in an effects lab...
