An immense amount of legends that circulate for many years mention strange forms of life that live under the Earth. However, these legends usually stay on the Internet, and do not leave there … except for exceptions.
There are stories of beings that come from a dark hell and possibly are among us since ancient times, which is why one of the most controversial videos in the history of YouTube is, without a doubt, which shows a strange creature of Reptilian aspect filmed in a British drain, video that many theorists have used to confirm the theories that these life forms do live among us.
The most terrifying thing is that it is not a single video, or two, but four recordings that were published on the YouTube platform. Another important point to note is that it was not hung by some ufologist, or by some UFO hunter that, normally, they do not have much credibility.
Those responsible for uploading the recordings was a company, which is responsible for water in the United Kingdom called United Utilities, on March 31, 2011. The next day, the news about the strange events recorded by the company was in every corner of the planet.
Many conspiracy theorists, both in personal blogs and forums, began to discuss and analyze the images, assuring that it was some reptilian creature. Others, however, mentioned some kind of lost animal, even that it was a montage. But what would a wastewater company gain from doing such a setup?
The Leigh Journal media was the first formal source to collect the images and review them, taking statements from the workers and people in charge of the company.
Mike Wood, regional manager of the sewer system at United Utilities, said that several of the employees had reported sightings of some strange animal, so they began to review the entire network of pipes with closed circuit monitoring. But what was seen was not exactly a sewer rat.
Wood explained at that time that the images were uploaded to YouTube, hoping that the general public would help them discover what it was, because they also had the theory that it could be an exotic pet that had gone astray, either from home from someone or from a zoo.
What they did have insurance is that it was feeding on the deposits of fat that were accumulating inside the pipes.
However, as the videos gained more and more reach, the theory that it could be a reptilian creature began to take much more strength among the public, and those who had been interested in the event.
In the images that were uploaded to YouTube you can see a strange creature with a long tail and body very similar to that of a reptile that crosses with the robot camera that the company had used to monitor the pipe network in case some of the the drains have some object stuck or there are nests of rats or other animals.
The event became so popular that even people baptized the creature, calling it “Messie”, alluding to the renowned monster of Loch Ness.
However, despite the fact that the first videos were quite … curious, none caused such impact and concern on the entire planet as the fourth video, where you can see the creature in front of the camera, showing long limbs, like legs and arms, with a clear humanoid aspect.
However, when the robot camera moves to focus it better, it retreats at high speed through the drain.
Still no explanation about the event, the company never declared that it was an advertising campaign or something like that and the media did not give more coverage to the topic What was that creature?
