The Abyss has always been one of our favourite movies and maybe James Cameron knew something the rest of the world didn't. Check out this new mermaid footage that's making the rounds. It was shot up in Greenland. It's unclear except for the translucent hand, face and body that swims off rapidly. It makes us think that the message in Cameron's film may have been portentous. We do SO hope this is not a hoax. The top video is from YouTube and the mermaid can be seen more clearly on it. The full video is below.
NOTE: Since posting this piece we have found confirmation that this is indeed a hoax (albeit a wonderful one that stimulates our imagination and that of millions of other people). Here is some information on the hoax: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/showtracker/la-et-st-animal-planet-mermaid-hoax-special-record-ratings-20130530,0,3088708.story
(PLEASE NOTE THAT WE'VE ADJUSTED THE SIZE OF THE VIDEO IN HTML BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE SHRINKING TO FIT THE PAGE SO HOPE YOU CAN STILL SEE IT ADEQUATELY.
