It's official: The iPhone is terrible at capturing Bigfoot. 

A woman named "Samantha" says she and some friends went for a hike in Downriver Park in Spokane, Wash., and unknowingly startled the legendary creature — also known as "Sasquatch." It was only after reviewing video taken with her phone that she spotted a dark, large shape moving through the woods ahead of them.  

Samantha wrote an email to the KXLY news website saying, "Someone asked me in the comments section if I believed in Bigfoot before the video. I have never given it much thought, but now I’m not so sure. Seems real enough to me."  

Or not. Once again, we have some craptastic video claiming to show Bigfoot. Even in today's world with high-definition cameras in everything, Sasquatch still remains nothing but a blurry shape or small item of interest on the horizon. One thing that is real is the interest generated by these clips online. In fact, if you want something to go viral, mocking up a Bigfoot video looks like an easy bet.   

Already, Samantha's clip has generated almost 1 million views on YouTube. That North Carolina sighting back in March? It has more than 2 million views.   

Of course, it's all in good fun. We want to believe that there might be some giant animal out there that we've yet to fully explain or document. Just don't try and capture it using an iPhone.
