The third possibility (and the one I think could be most likely) is that this is CGI. I tend to be somewhat suspicious about the oh-so-fortuitous camera angle on this. Yes, they put the guy's head in the way and they pan away to the campfire but the camera is there, on target, when it counts. That just makes me a tad suspicious.
The video was taken 15 years ago at a wooded area close to a lake in New York and at the end they even show the lake being filmed by the same people and on the other side is some kind of festival.
The BFRO on Animal Planet interviewd the man and his family who claimed they saw nothing until they looked at the film 15 years later.
Several biologists/animal experts from New York who looked at the film say it is definitely an ape of some kind but no way to know if it's an actual bigfoot. This was all on the 1 hour tv episode of Animal Planet about 3 days ago.
