Classic Viral Video: When People In Mobile, Alabama Found A Leprechaun

By Bradford Hornsby

Let’s get into the internet time machine and relive one of the greatest viral videos of a decade ago.

Back in the mid-2000’s, NBC 15 in Mobile, Alabama reported a strange sighting in the suburb of Crichton. Residents swear they were seeing a leprechaun in a tree.

“The Leprechaun only comes out at night.” Explains the newscast, “If you shine a light in its direction it suddenly disappears.”

The newscast then showed what it calls an “amateur sketch” of the Leprechaun … it is at 43 seconds into the video and is classic. Looks like it was drawn by an 8-year-old.

The highlight of the video is one vocal resident that isn’t buying the leprechaun sighting.

“Could be a crackhead that got hold of the wrong stuff and it told him to get up in a tree and play a leprechaun.”

Watch the video above and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
