Real Life Gnomes, Or Back-Door Alien Infestation In Argentina?

Illustration for article titled Real Life Gnomes, Or Back-Door Alien Infestation In Argentina?

A few months back, the people of Salta, Argentina were being brutally walk-assaulted by gnome like creatures, and this October, there is creepy new gnome footage. I personally believe that this isn't a woodland creature, but instead a tiny alien race slowly taking over our world; to quote my man Casey from The Faculty, "If you were going to take over the world, would you blow up the White House 'Independence Day' style, or sneak in through the back door? " Is David the Gnome finally enacting his vengeance for the human's mistreatment of his animal friends, or an alien master race? Either way our pointy headed friend can do a mean Hammer crawl. Check out the two homemade videos of pointy hatted proof.The teens that filmed the second footage spoke to The Sun and are now too terrified to leave their houses. According to the interview, this October attack happen very quickly, and the little creature was wearing dark clothes and covered in shadows: “This little thing was barking like a dog - but running sideways on two legs. It headed off towards the football stadium.” First Sighting:

Second Sighting:

Snopes (the rumor busters) decided that both videos were not real as they followed the common pattern for staged urban legend hoax videos (quick focus and then cut away). If that's true and this whole thing is a hoax, then we have a couple of concerns: one, why hoax a gnome and two, that is some mighty convincing girl shrieking coming out of the camera man. [The Sun]

Maybe I was the only one creeped out by the video. It does look a lot like a hoax, but damn, those gnomes, or whatever they are, they just move weird. The second one looks computer animated—and probably is, considering it's just a shadow.

The thing is, if a killer gnome were after me, I suppose I'd just kick it, but I think I'd have to get over the fact that I was being attacked by a killer gnome first.
