Philloniess Fisch : I feel like it’s fake because as an American I can assure you that we do not use the metric system. We wouldn’t say something is certain meters away. We would probably use feet. Good video anyway!

Meyer Shankhoof : Heeeere's Negan!

XenoWars Games : Sounds very close for it being 20 meters. And looks 2 times farther, for it being 20 meters.

Jonathan Figg : I’m still trying to understand what is so terrifying about this “urban legend.” What am I missing? It’s just the sound of someone whistling. No scary visuals or imminent danger. Even with the backstory, it’s mildly creepy at best. Please enlighten me.

Wonderfroggy : That´s how I whistle every time I´m trying to get my cats to come in. Been whistling like that since I was a kid and my parents do it too, so it´s not that uncommon I would think.

FreddieMason : The reason I can tell this is fake or at least the dude telling it was stupid af is it said the canoe was perpendicular to him (aka straight at him. Parallel would be going down/up the river.) And then turned a 180 and "disappeared". If he did a 180 he should be facing the other shore.

Roland Jenkins : 7 1/2 minutes of my life I can never get back.

Matt Banks : real or not the footage gives me the chills

GuyWithChainsaw : The story is probably fake, there are evidence that support that, however the story is still good. The idea of a sound haunting you through your life can make you paranoid. Wherever you are you are scared of hearing that sound and when you finnaly forget... *tweeet*

Zer0san : I hate to be that ONE downvote, but just wanted to let you know it’s not the video itself, your stuff is phenomenal. The downvote was for the Falcons shirt. Keep Pounding, fam.

Charlie Hartnett : The only strange part of this story is that this guy apparently went 16 years without hearing anybody whistling near him... SPOOKY

HeidiSue60 : The canoe whistler is creepy BAD, but it reminds me of the mating call of the black capped chickadee, so I wonder if his childhood whistler might have been a bird. However that doesn’t explain some random canoer coming at him whistling like a chickadee 🤭 freakeeee!

Dane Parker : I can't help picturing a chickadee when I hear this 😄

corilew26 : I swear to god, that video is cursed. Once the video ends I can hear the EXACT SAME whistling.

mabecka : Atlanta Falcons no less! Good for you :)

Terri Hamill : Here via NE. I'm from Flint (yeah, that one) which is near Lansing. When I heard this story it sparked a really vague memory in me, some urban legend (maybe not so legendy?) about a mysterious whistler and death or serial killer... Can't put my finger on it, but the video is definitely creepy.

Chris Cringle : I did not know a person could sound British, Irish and Canadian all at the same time!!! lol😁

Jacob Frye : I really, really want to believe it's fake...

Jemma Farrar : Crazy what humans are scared of nowadays whistling, trees, just noise in general wtf

Sasquatch Fever and Sons : Me and my friend heard the whistle after I told him about it. Probably BS but it was still crazy timing.

David Miller : The guy in the canoe was probably whistling to comfort himself from a couple of drunk campers shouting at him on the shore.

Bob Madeup : Missed this one. There was also a r/nosleep story called the Whistler or something like that. It was one of the best 2-3 stories I'd read there.

That Chapter : So, what do you think about the Whistler?! True story?

Cool girl 123 : This sounds fake I mean people share scary stories for entertainment value.

Heather Lynn : Fake or not still creepy as hell

WitchidWitchid : Wow, I heartd that same whistle theough much of my childhood. One of our neighbors used to whistle almost exactly like that to call his kids in for dinner.

Michele Cox : You want freaky?! That was my Mothers' "come along" whistle! That gave me chills. I am going to go have a freakout moment now...

Dean Kirby : wet your whistle

Ryan Higgle : That's a seriously creepy one

OuTLaW#HighTimes 101 : I heard it one night in ky during a thunderstorm..I mean raining hard I had took a nap an woke up I was setting up in the bed like 2 in the morning it was haunting as hell..Scared me to death..

Onnie Tyler : I live in lansing Michigan. Weird . Oh and this is city is filled with creepy things and people !

Rod Williams : Its Negan!

Lisa A Johnson : It’s fake. The person making it is doing the whistling. You wouldn’t be able to hear it that clean if the person doing it wasn’t really close to mic.

Lynn Potter : I just wonder if other people have heard this before ? Or is it just this one person?

Agostina Kenoyer : Why is an eight year old child walking his dog at eleven at night?

john oliva : Why is allthis strange stuff happens in the Northwest or the Michigan area.Love the video.

s shlubb : I don't see a figure in a canoe much less see a canoe...All I see is black of night and water...Is this just ANOTHER FAKE video...And right, the USA is NOT on the metric system...BOGUS!!!

DataSeeker : synchronicity at most, juvenile imagination at work, quite likely.

Jestre, Lord of Fools : Footage of a bird whistling off camera set to a creepy story, how...... fascinating?

zaahatchetman gaming : I live in Michigan and weird shit happens here all the time.

Silkendrum : That whistle is the same sound a child who hasn't yet learned to whistle will make (weeee-hoooo). It's a simple draw in, blow out. Any 4-year-old can demonstrate it for you - or someone like me can, since in my entire long life I've never been able to whistle.

Sandy Davis : Hey cutie its me again. I just love ya

MikeKye200 : Sounds like BS to me.  All I see is some fireworks above a river. No canoe.  And the constant whistling sounds dubbed and fake as hell.

Jarrold Bates : Bull sh!t but, a good campfire story.

Joseph Neva : ITS YOOOOO BOY HERE!!! Sup Mike!

Aphotic : Fug i live there

Michael Downey : So crap. The whistle sounds like it is right next to the microphone. Then when he says was that you his voice sounds like it came from the same place as the whistle. And at the end that boat is way out to hear a whistle that soft that clearly.

jay d : Its your boy mike im still a virgin ,

bunberrier : That was about as believeable as CNN.

A human Being : Ugh why Lansing, I live really close to Lansing and there's a swampy area where I live.
