Words on the video read, “Strange creatures captured on video. While exploring a small chain of islands, a tour group came across a terrifying sight. They heard a strange “scream” from one of the islands, and [upon] Upon investigation, they found these creatures near a cave. They seemed to be in a strange ritual. “
A second video was later released claiming the creatures could be “early ancestors” of humans.

The words of the video read: “From the video, scientists have speculated about the importance of the species as it could be one of our early ancestors and could help fight disease and disease. But until you can be caught studying, what exactly it is is unknown. According to the area report, the island is listed [as] Private property, which means that no government agency can enter the area. “
What were these supposedly “new creatures”? The viewers gave their assumptions under the videos.
Commentators discuss the “new creatures”
A TikTok user said of the supposedly “new creatures” in Thailand: “I was there. It’s an island full of monkeys. “
Another remarked, “We have known monkeys for years. Nothing new about them. “
“You have to check out Animal Planet if you don’t know what they are,” said another commenter.
The “new creatures” in Thailand weren’t monkeys, however, and Animal Planet probably wouldn’t be of much help here.
One person joked that they were gremlins from the old movies. Another said, “It’s just my sisters-in-law chilling out.”
The TikTok viral video was uploaded in 2021, but it wasn’t new. The clip appeared to be from 2018 when we posted a fact check on the subject.
As I said, everything old is new again on TikTok.
In addition to the more than 6 million TikTok views, the video was also viewed millions of times on YouTube. The most popular YouTube video was titled: “Ewok Like Troll Monkeys On Thai Island”.
A quick research on “new creatures around” [a] Water cave in Thailand ”led us to the name Tori Wrånes.
Despite the idea that the video shows an animal that was never documented before the 21st century, the truth was a lot simpler.
According to an article and a Facebook post by XIBT Contemporary Art Magazine, both published in 2019, it was none other than the artistic work of Tori Wrånes.
The magazine wrote that she “transported Norwegian fantastic fiction even beyond the borders of her own country”.
Although the vision of trolls playing the flute seems downright absurd, especially in the tropics, the performers and the artist have translated this vision into reality. Wrånes is currently one of the most established artistic personalities in Scandinavia. Last year she was invited to the first edition of the Thailand Biennale, which had the motto “Edge of Wonderland”. She decided to start a living herd of a mysterious species on the island of Krabi.
The group of creatures was playing on supposedly “historical” instruments in the Phra Nang Cave when they were discovered. The performance seemed to be somewhere between controversial and influential art. The actions are incomprehensible, covered with a cloak of fairy-tale and dark secrets, but thanks to these properties they are deeply touching or even evoke extreme emotions.
The person who shot the video was known as Jemayel Khawaja.
In the end, the “new creatures” allegedly discovered in a water cave in Thailand were nothing more than an art exhibition.
This wasn’t the first time artistic expression has been turned into something supposedly spooky and mysterious. For example, we previously reported on “zombies” that were discovered in Google Maps Street View. It was nothing more than an interesting roadside attraction.
