Has Animal Planet got another new mermaid show coming out or something?

One of the youtube commenters is claiming the footage is taken from this 2011 TV movie: Mermaids: The Body Found. It's a docufiction that originally aired on May 27, 2012 on Animal Planet and later on Discovery Channel.


The docufiction, Mermaids: The New Evidence, which was aired earlier this month, is a sequel.


They're both faker than fake.

Mermaids may be a hoax but Merman is very very real.

I don't know about y'all but who really knows what's way down at the bottom of the Ocean.  The Abyss?? Aliens??? strange prehistoric animals.  I am keeping an open mind about this whole thing.  Besides it would be nice to know Ariel is still floating around.

It was Friday morn
When we sailed out
And we were not far from the land
hen the Captain he spied
A mermaid so fair
With a comb and a glass in her hand

I always thought the Aquatic Ape theory was interesting and explains why we are so different from other mammals (we're really different). Science is pretty slow to even look at theories like this though (perhaps rightly so). But this whole Mermaid thing is pretty silly. The 'documentary' was so obviously baloney I thought it was a joke.

If Ariel is still floating around it is in a vat of embalming fluids in some secret government sanction facility

Discovery really needs to do a tiny bit of research related to the names of cities, and especially how those names are pronounced.

Their so-called "Naval officer" with his faced blotted out supposedly served near the city of Beaufort, SC.  But this guy repeatedly pronounced the name using the long "O" vowel sound, as in the word "boat":  BO-fort.

WRONG.

The name of the city is pronounced as the word "beauty" (the word "you" with a B in front):  BYOU-fort.  Anyone who served in the area would know the name of the city and how it is pronounced.

Plus, all the "scientists" used very hard T's at the end of words such as thaT, whaT, boaT, etc.  This is a technique taught to ACTORS, and it's *very* noticeable.  Non-actors simply do not punch out an extremely loud, distinct T sound when it's at the end of a word...it's has neither less nor more emphasis.  I mean, I say "that"....not "tha-TUH".

So my first impression was, these folks are actors.  And once I saw their IMDB pages, well....tha-TUH was tha-TUH.

/but the Kardashians all tweeted about it!
//it *must* be real!!

Like some shows are rated adult because of sexual content, some should be rated adult because of stupidity content.

How can young kids distinguish between genuine science shows and this crap?

I must admit I was fooled by the "Mermaids: The Body Found" mockumentary.  I missed the beginning, and didn't see that video of the kids finding the body on the sand, which was obviously fake.  It would have know it was a fake if I had seen that part, but no such luck.  During the rest of the shows, the people being brought in had quite believeable credentials.  Not "bigfoot research" or "ghost specialist" types you see in other shows, but NOAA scientists, people from the Smithsonian, American Museum of Natural History, and so on.  It is the same formula described on this Radiolab episode.

Afterwards I understood how those people who fell for "The War Of The Worlds" broadcast must have felt.

I hadn't heard of this mermaid crap until it started showing up on my Facebook feed ("wow, is this mermaid for real???").  To their credit, the comments quickly set them straight about the show, but there was still a lot of "but this doesn't DISPROVE mermaids either!!".

You should have known it was fake when you saw it was about mermaids.
