An Argentinian mother captured something quite unexpected in a video of her son Benjamin. The creepy footage reveals a mysterious creature running in the background of the video, disappearing under a chest of drawers.
The goblin video has gone viral since it was uploaded, reaching nearly 12 million views. The child’s mother, known as Silvia, claims that the video has not been edited in any way and that she often heard Benjamin talking to himself while sitting on the floor, according to the New York Daily News. She figured it was normal baby banter until the goblin showed itself on the video.
Benjamin seems to hear and see the goblin, taking the time to look under the chest of drawers to see where it went. Silvia, shocked by the appearance of the goblin, also bends over to see where the goblin went and reassure herself that she actually saw the creature. Even after the original incident, she was skeptical about what she saw. However, she has reported that the goblin has been captured on video at least five times.
Silvia claims that she can tell when the goblin is around, even if she doesn’t see it, according to Metro. Silvia claims that the goblins are always accompanied by a nauseating smell. She also states that, since the goblin was first discovered, it has never harmed her or her family in any way. Therefore, she believes it to be a peaceful creature and completely harmless.
Benjamin is now 5-years-old, and Silvia believes that he and the goblin are still good friends to this day.
The video is not the best of quality, and the goblin’s details are similar to that of most Bigfoot videos, leaving many to claim the goblin is fake. Some clues, such as the creature’s shadow and stride, provide reality to its presence. However, many feel it is an amateur editing job.
A close-up of the goblin shows that the body is real. However, many think that the goblin is simply inserted into the video after it was recorded; a shrunken model of a running man or woman.
Commenter Wako1576 claimed that the running motion was unnatural.
“Good visuals, but the motion of it running seemed a bit off or unnatural, maybe because it just went in a straight line, or because the movement didn’t have any natural flaws and was perfect.”
Skinmanikin was quick to point out the goblin has flaws.
“so many editing flaws on this one, can’t believe people fall for it”
However, mayorip pointed out Benjamin’s glance under the table as proof it might be real.
“i would normally think it was fake but the baby looks under the table too”
Regardless of whether it is real or fake, the nearly 12 million viewers on YouTube were entertained by the video and continue to debate in the comments.
Goblin Lore has been around for centuries, most evident in Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Goblins are often portrayed as nuisances, but can also be helpful to humans. They tend to hide out of sight of prying human eyes, causing mischief in their wake. Is it possible that Silvia’s goblin is real?
What are your thoughts on the video? Did Silvia insert the goblin creature into the shot afterward, hoping to fool the world with the mystical creature? Is the goblin real, mistakenly inserting itself into the frame, where it became a viral YouTube sensation? If you believe it is fake, tell us why.
