A cell phone video posted on YouTube has revived the legend of “Champ,” a monster that supposedly lives in Lake Champlain at the U.S.-Canada border, ABC News is reporting.

Eric Olsen, 37, of Burlington, Vt., shot the nearly two-minute video and posted it on YouTube last month. It shows an object moving across the lake at daybreak and dipping below the surface.


Believers says the video offers evidence of Champ’s existence. Skeptics say the video likely shows a moose or deer. Olsen himself said he doubts it’s the legendary water monster of North America.

I’ve seen the video, and I think it could be a monster.  Because it kinda looked like Donald Trump floating on his back.

I didn’t even know we had our own version of the Loch Ness monster.  I think Nessie has got a much better PR operation.

If it turns out to be a true water monster, should we kill it, capture it or make it the star of a reality TV show?  Because you know we’d watch “I’m a Sea Monster! Get Me Out of Here!”
