“If you swim effortlessly in the deep oceans, ride the waves to and from the shore, if you can breathe under water and dine on the deep treasures of the seas; mark my words, those who dwell on the rocks carrying nets will try to reel you into their catch.” ― C. JoyBell C.

Animal Planet managed to ‘hook’ 3.6 million viewers with their new ‘evidence’ speculating that mermaids do, in fact, exist.

In one heck of a War of the Worlds moment, viewers around the world starting sharing out the astonishing new video at lightening speed.

According to Charlie Foley, the show’s executive producer:

“We wanted people to approach the story with a sense of possibility and a sense of wonder. Hopefully that’s what ‘Mermaids’ allowed viewers to do . . . allowed them to suspend their disbelief.”

In fact, the video is so believable that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) had to release an official statement regarding the ‘documentary’ and to let viewer know that “no evidence of “aquatic humanoids” has ever been documented.

It takes me back to my childhood, when in just a moment of pondering on…even the wildest of dreams could come true.

Except, maybe for mermaids…that’s just a little weird.
