Finding Bigfoot Promo Teaser on Animal Planet
Posted by Guy Edwards
Oooweee! The twitterverse has been lit up with reports of a new commercial for a TV show titled Finding Bigfoot.
For those of you who do not know, Finding Bigfoot is an effort to end the 100-year old search for the mythical creature, Animal Planet is joining forces with Bigfoot researchers on a new series Finding Bigfoot. You can catch up with our Finding Bigfoot coverage.
Starting as early as last Sunday, we saw tweets about the new promo. With diligence we set our channel to Animal Planet and waited---and waited.
This task was not so tough, because we come from the age before iPods and MP3's. Back in the day (1983), if you wanted to get a recording of your favorite musical single, you waited until the weekend and listened to Casey Kasem countdown the top 100 hits until the "Ewok Celebration" song (AKA "yub nub" #60 on the top 100 chart). If you could have the presence of mind to stop doing the "Chief Chirpa" and hit record, you would have the soundtrack for your entire third grade year.
This task was no different, if we waited long enough we knew we get some great stills from the promo. Check 'em out below. Not much is revealed in the 30-second spot, lots reactions to noises heard in the dark. But you definitely get the sense they traveled through multiple terrains in search of Bigfoot.
