Ok, so on Animal Planet there's been some debate as to whether the video is legit or not. To back up the fact that it's real, it's home website believeinmermaids.com's domain name has been seized by HLS (Home Land Security). It is illegal to fake a seizure warrant. So for those who believe that the owner(s) did this are most likely wrong, unless of course the said owner(s) of the website did fake a seizure warrant and broke the law. I don't think the owner(s) would go through all of this just as a prank. I'm new at this so don't make fun of me if I did something wrong,

I accept. I'm not sure if this is a round for acceptance or not, so i'm just gonna say a argument

argument #1:Adobe after effects exists
The existence of Adobe After Effects removes videos from the category of reliable evidence.

That's unfortunate, because my previous comment is overflowing with sarcasm.

I'm finding a lack of sarcasm in that sentence.
