This video of a 'mysterious giant creature' in the Thames is the reason you have trust issues

Updated: 

Be honest, videos like the one below are the reason you have trust issues. You so badly want to believe it will be different this time, that this genuinely could be proof that our world is enchanted and all that is currently known isn't all there is to be known - that there is some mystery left.

But your jaded heart won't let you. And probably with good reason.

This footage was captured in a cable car on the Emirates Air Line in London, and appears to show a "mysterious giant creature/object in the Thames".

"Something huge was moving under the water and then briefly surfaced," wrote the poster. "Are there whales in the Thames?? Or is it some weird submarine."

Two sides of your brain are fighting now, aren't they? One part wants to believe there could be a magical river monster living peacefully in the Thames, oblivious to and unconcerned by all the man-made chaos of the city. The other part is very aware After Effects software is a thing. Maybe the comments underneath can help you decide?

"You have the opportunity to video one of the most legendary monsters of all time and you shoot it vertically? Were you dropped on the head as a kid, man?" one observation reads. "Must be your mum," says another. This isn't going to help us decide.

There's only one thing to do now: go back to our lives.
