New Film of a Loch Ness Monster?

Just after the report of a photo of a "Loch Ness Monster" (that looked more like a bird or a log), which was just after reports that any Nessies had not been seen for 8 months, come this report of one of the lake's monsters on video.

The Daily Mail reports:

"This video shows what looks like a head and a long neck poking out of the tranquil water in the Scottish loch.
"It was spotted by Rob Jones, 35, from North Wales, who uploaded the video to YouTube to find out if anyone knew what it was.
"He asked: 'What the h*** was it? Did anyone else see it?'
"Speaking to the Scotsman, he said: 'I saw it quite far across the Loch near the castle, but by the time I stopped the van, it was very close and other people stopped to take photos too.
"'Sadly, I don't believe in monsters, but I would love to know what it was.'
"'Nessie' appears to be unfazed by the boat moving past him, as does the man who can be seen standing on the top of the boat, by the creature's presence, throwing confusion into the situation.
"Rob tried to follow the monster's path, but it disappears from sight behind some bushes."

I am having some doubts about this film, and there's many reasons for that:

  1. The boat right beside it . Whatever is in the video went right by this boat, with someone standing out on it, and the person didn't seem to react at all. That's not really what I think you would do if there was a lake monster swimming right beside you.
  2. The "creature" itself. The "neck" is held straight up the whole time. To me it almost looked like it may have moved a head around 40-50 seconds but I'm not sure. But other than that, it doesn't move. At all.
  3. At the end of the video, after the filmmaker looks at those standing next to him, he looks back at the lake. And at this time, you can still see the "thing" in the bottom right-hand corner, but they either don't notice or don't care, since he didn't focus on it at all. Suspicious. I think if someone was witnessing the Loch Ness Monster in a place where they could see it clearly, they'd keep the camera on it!
  4. I'm also very suspicious of this and the earlier photo, because they were taken shortly after lots of news about Nessie being "missing." Later in the Daily Mail article, it is noted that the two sightings took place within five days of each other in May. Two sightings within five days when there hadn't been a reported sighting for eight months before that?
I don't think this particular film, and the earlier photo, are very credible. It just seems too coincidental to me that there are two sightings, both with something caught on film, shortly after the news about no sightings. Probably just people trying to get their "15 minutes of fame."
