Yes, the title of this posting is correct: I have indeed dubbed the creature in my famous video after myself... it is my right after all. The name "Von Beringe's Southern California Upright Timber Giant" will soon ring through the halls of academia as I am proclaimed the discoverer of the creature commonly misidentified as Bigfoot.
Here I provide wood carvings of my associate Monk and myself for any institutions that would like to get a head start on adding us to the annals of natural history.
Further evidence of my astonishing discovery can be found below. In the video you'll see Monk & I leaving camp less than an hour before the creatures appears. Not only does this offering contradict any notion of CGI enhancement, it also provides a source of scale, supporting my claim that the hairy beast must have been upwards of 8 1/2 feet large.
For those interested in breaking down my videos, you should know--for the sake of scale, yaw, pitch & roll--that Monk and I were camped on a steep incline in the area in Griffith Park known as "The Old Zoo."
Thank you in advance for your good wishes on my history-making discovery.
All the best,
