Did a guy just find proof the Canadian Loch Ness monster is real?

We've been collecting alleged photos and videos of Scotland's legendary Loch Ness monster for decades, but Nessie's not the only game in town. Canada has its own version of the legendary lake beast, and some guy may have caught it on video.

Richard Huls was visiting a winery near Okanagan Lake in British Columbia last week when he turned his camera on the lake and captured an unusual shape in the water. The shape is darker than the water around it, and definitely not moving in conjunction with the waves, but what is it?

Well, maybe it's Okanagan Lake's legendary beast, Ogopogo. (Yeah, that's really what they call it.)

"It was not going with the waves," Huls told the Vancouver Sun. "It was not a wave, obviously, just a darker color. The size and the fact that they were not parallel with the waves made me think it had to be something else."

This video hardly looks like conclusive proof of anything except that the cameraman has some issues with steadiness, but it is something worth pondering. Something else worth pondering: How did we get through the 1980s without a band called Ogopogo?
