You see that? What the hell was that? That was a f*cking gnome! That's what that was. Or at least that's what The Sun is reporting.
Apparently General Guemes of Salta, Aregentina is currently being terrorized by this little creepy gnome. Is he evil? Magical? Who the hell knows, fact is he looks cool, or creepy depending how you look at it.
Truth be told I have no idea what I'd do if this thing comes walking towards me randomly at 1:00 in the morning. Options include punting it down the street, running away, or offering it a hit of your joint and hope he's a stoner, much like the LEPRECHAUN.
I can't really tell if this whole story is real or fake. The Sun states it's a midget dressed in a pointy hat and walks sideways. Who knows, but it's pretty cool. Apparently it's pretty damn scary though, Jose Alvarez, the kid who caught the thing on tape, had the following to say:
"We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving. To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid. This is no joke. We are still afraid to go out - just like everyone else in the neighbourhood now. One of my friends was so scared after seeing that thing that we had to take him to the hospital.”
So if anyone was looking for a reason to travel to Argentina, there it is. I'm booking my plane ticket as we speak... I wish. Let's hope there's a lot more to this story. Check out the video of the little guy below or head on over here. If the you have a fear of gnomes and were tragically traumatized by the video, accept the picture of the hotties below as my apology.
