Gnome Sighting in Argentina
There are many videos of alleged gnome sightings on YouTube. Most are clearly hoaxes, but some are difficult to explain. The best example of a sighting that I could find was filmed in Argentina in 2008. It shows a group of young men talking when the camera pans to show a small, gnome shaped figure in the distance moving toward them in a strange hopping motion. The men scream and run away in fear. The poor quality of the video makes it difficult to tell if it is actually capturing a gnome sighting. The video was first picked up by a British tabloid newspaper called, The Sun. This video is among the most viewed gnome encounter on YouTube. I went to snopes.come and found out that it was actually a hoax.
