Houston, TX-- A shocking video is going viral on the Internet tonight and it is scaring people around the world. A horrific Utube video shows a giant squid attacking the Deepwater Horizon Oil Platform last month. The 80-foot monster is shown attacking the rig with its eight tentacles. The rig is quickly destroyed, and crude oil then begins pouring into the Gulf of Mexico.
The 10-minute video looks like something out of a Jules Verne nightmare. The giant squid is first shown looking at the oil rig with its hungry, dinner plate sized eyes. Giant tentacles with suction cups can then be seen grabbing people off the platform and eating them.
The giant squid has been videotaped only once before, off the coast of Japan in 2004. Oceanographers believe the giant squid thought the oil rig was food. They also believe there are many more of these monsters lurking in the dark waters of the Gulf of Mexico right now. Future attacks seem likely.
The Obama administration has been trying to keep this information secret. Navy Seals have been sent to the Gulf to kill giant squids before more attacks occur. So far, there has been no luck in killing any of the beasts.
News of the attack is sending oil prices skyrocketing. There are also fresh rumours about a 'sea monster' attacking an oil rig in the North Sea off Scotland. More video is expected on Utube shortly.
