Update: "Sewer Cam" Video Mystery Solved?

So the intertubes have been all a buzz the past couple of days with speculation about the now infamous “sewer cam” video. Even on this very site ideas have been tossed around mostly revolving around the idea that it’s a hoax that’s been set up for some new movie. Well it looks likes the video is now getting the attention of city officials down in Raleigh, North Carolina where the video was supposedly taken.

Marti Gibson, who is the Environmental/EMS Coordinator for Public Utilities in the city of Raleigh only had this to say.

The video was taken in a private sewer system by a private contractor working for them. It does not belong to the City of Raleigh nor will it reach the Neuse River Wastewater Treatment Plant. This is the response from our director: "The video is of the private sanitary sewer in the Cameron Village and was taken by a private contractor working for them and not taken by our staff. The blob has been identified by others as worms."

Private video? Sounds shady if you ask me. Well the good people over at Deep Sea News interviewed Dr. Timothy S. Wood and he had this to say.

They are clumps of annelid worms, almost certainly tubificids (Naididae, probably genus Tubifex). Normally these occur in soil and sediment, especially at the bottom and edges of polluted streams. In the photo they have apparently entered a pipeline somehow, and in the absence of soil they are coiling around each other. The contractions you see are the result of a single worm contracting and then stimulating all the others to do the same almost simultaneously, so it looks like a single big muscle contracting.

Of course there are a bunch of other ideas out there but most people who might have a clue what they’re talking about seem to agree with Dr. Wood. I’m going to go out on a limb though and say this is all a government conspiracy to cover up their new underground pod people project. They’re coming to get you people and they’re going to suck out your souls. Get the tin foil and cover your heads while you still can!
