(Newsroom America) -- People involved in producing the world's most famous Bigfoot footage have admitted it was a hoax and the "Bigfoot" is actually a man in a suit. The footage was taken nearly 50 years ago and is among a small number of film clips that have been burned into the world's collective conscious.
The footage these motion pictures present capture once-in-a-lifetime events and have been viewed repeatedly, millions of times, leaving an indelible cultural impact across the globe.
Lasting only seconds on the screen but a lifetime in our minds, these snippets of footage include:
President Kennedy's assassination – Zapruder's famous 27-second film Loch Ness Monster – "Nessie", as the mythical best is known, swims majestically across the famed loch Hindenburg airship crashing from the sky in flames in 1937 newsreel film Challenger Space Shuttle disaster shown live on CNN First man on the moon by Apollo 11 crew from 1969 Bigfoot Creature – Patterson/Gimlin footage of the mysterious beast as it lumbers along a northern California river bank
All of these films have created lasting images of historical events, and have been accepted by generations past and present as proof-positive of their occurrence.
While the authenticity of each of these famous film moments has been debated, never have any of these films conclusively been proven fake. That is until now.
A radio broadcast "Hoax of the Century" (online at http://www.searchingforbigfoot.com/bigfoot-sightings-show.htm) finally puts the nearly 50-year hoax to rest.
Renowned Bigfoot researcher Tom Biscardi presents testimony from those involved in staging the film, providing decisive evidence that the footage was not of some unexplained and mysterious natural being, but of a man in a suit.
Mr Biscardi says the radio program irrefutably proves that the Patterson/Gimlin film was perpetrated upon the public as a hoax for monetary benefit.
While the authenticity of the Patterson/Gimlin footage has been debated before, and most believe in its validity, the people involved have confessed it was a hoax including Bob Heironimus who wore the suit and Philip Morris, the man that sold the suit to Patterson.
