If you have never bought into conspiracy theories of some sort — Sasquatch, Yeti, successful governmental intervention in a free-market economy, and the like — this peculiar video might change your mind.
A group of bikers in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, ran across something truly amazing while traveling along a trail, the U.K. Daily Mail reported. So amazing, in fact, that one of the lead riders fell right off his bike in surprise when he saw what had just popped out of the forest.
It was a little half-naked human-like figure carrying a stick.
Seriously. And it was caught on tape.
This video, published March 22, has picked up better than 7 million views already, and people have been going wild trying to figure out just what the heck is going on.
The Daily Mail explained a theory that may just solve the case: the legendary Mante tribe.
“The mythical Mante tribe are said to be smaller than the average man and flee when they see people from the outside world,” the Daily Mail reported. “The only record of the supposed tribe was in the 17th century, when it was claimed two Mante tribesmen were captured and presented to the Sultan (of Aceh).”
But Mante people aren’t supposed to actually be real. They’re folklore … right?
“In 2003, archaeologists found evidence of an ancient race of small ‘hobbit-like’ humans on the island of Flores, on the other side of the archipelago,” the Daily Mail continued. “Homo floresiensis are believed to have been around 3-and-a-half feet tall and lived around 50,000 years ago. Fossils of the ‘Flores hobbit’ showed that the early people had small brains and no chin.
“While some scientists believe the species were completely separate from the modern human, others argue homo floresiensis just had growth problems.”
An interesting hypothesis, but it leaves one mystery unanswered … What the heck is on this video?
