    Ppl are ridiculous

    Only retards believe in fairies and elves

    That journalist didn't look very open-minded. It must be tough for him to understand the world when not everyone is the same as him. There is no Icelandic word for Supercilious.

    as a icelander, we have rocks with elves in. it is known.

    cynicism is not an attractive quality

    When I was around 11yr, there was a Vietnam veteran in our apt complex, he was confined to a wheelchair, and he told us some pretty harrowing stories. One I remember was about a mining tunnel experience of his early adulthood. He swore he saw winged demonic beings jumping through and into the tunnel walls, and wherever they were seen, a strong smell of sulfur would either precede or follow them. It gave me chills as a kid to hear those stories. Now that I’m an adult, I try to rationalize it, perhaps he was just messing with us, or maybe he really believed what he told us…maybe the miners hallucinated due to the lack of fresh air, or some kinda toxic fumes…I don’t know, this just reminded me of those stories he told. I haven’t thought about them in years.

    That smirk is just silly, I’m not telling anyone to believe in elves but isn’t life itself a miracle? I know about science but the concept that we are living intelligent beings is amazing so why can’t things like this have some truth to it?

  • M.F on May 15, 2019

    Are they fuckable

  • Wasp Journals on June 10, 2019

    Some people believe in elves, some believe in God and Jesus, some in Allah and Muhammad, to each their own fairytale.

    Science says there are parallel universes yet people that worship science don't believe there is any intersection between them. The reporter is ignorant to think there is nothing that would be considered "supernatural." The supernatural is natural phenomenon that is not understood by most people.

    Really no need to be so dickish.

  • Gilles Desjardins on March 8, 2020

    Are they real?

  • Morningstar LINK on March 26, 2020

    Evlen kind are real

  • Loreto Bustos on March 31, 2020

    Don’t like the journalist. Totally disrespectful of their culture

  • Königstiger on April 25, 2020

    Elves exist.
    They are shy and less strong than humans they live in empty spaces and areas in nature and in abandoned houses.
    Their most favorite places are near water source, Waterfall

  • Will on May 13, 2020

    To make scoff at another culture's beliefs is just a disgusting thing for a journalist to do.

  • Joe on May 15, 2020

    As soon as ignoramus' like you realize that you don't know everything…as a matter of fact that you know nothing.. this world will start to be a much better place..

    whos here after watching eurovision?

  • Sabrina Jolly Corgi on June 29, 2020

    The tone of the journo is really disrespectful. He may not believe in elves it's fine but still can't he have a bit of cultural relativism when he's in there talking with other cultures? If he wanted his tone to be cheeky and humorous obviously failed

  • Marcus Lee on July 1, 2020

    Eurovision brought me here

  • Gilbert Thomas on July 3, 2020

    They helped Fire Saga for Eurovision, don't diss them.

    I hope the elves don't go too far.

    Rather believing in elves than god

    I don't know much about elves but I have had an experience with what I call " little people". They are real. There's a group of them living at the hospital in Modesto California….. they like to hide behind the curtains and play with the curtains. You can see their little feet running or sometimes a whole little group of them playing. They really do wear pointy hats and cartoonish clothing. My mother and a family friend were both in the room when it happened and my mother took one look at them and then at me and then at our family friend Ricky (who we were visiting at the hospital) and she her eyes got wide as saucers and she just took one look at me and one look at Ricky on the bed and said in a very hushed monotone voice… "DO YOU SEE WHAT I'M SEEING RIGHT NOW…….????" And Ricky immediately replied with "Yes the little people… they mess with my curtains at night." I didn't say a single word I just stayed there absolutely in shock. I wish I could say I looked back after the first time but I was terrified. I still have no idea where they ran off to but right before leaving the hospital room he said that he'd been seeing them a lot. My mom and I immediately went out and spoke to a nurse about what we saw and she didn't seem at all surprised!!!!! The nurses already knew about them at the hospital and said that they were harmless and that they were always running around the hospital in little groups. They were about an foot and a half high …………. I have never suffered from hallucinations or any kind of psychotic mental illness or anything like that in the least… although if it had just been me that saw them I may have believed I was actually losing my mind. It did mess with my head though….. I can't lie. I still don't know what to make of it. Believe me or not they are real. They just are.They look like little cavemen/ old men with "cartoonish" clothing and pointy hats although I don't believe all of them had pointy hats. They ran eerily quickly for their size. I almost couldn't see their little legs running they were so fast. Their legs were also pretty covered idk if it was with hair or beards or clothing or all three.. but they were tiny little creatures and they knew they were being seen and could seemingly care less. They were chasing each other around like little children. Hiding from each other and hiding behind the curtains qlmost like they were playing peekaboo. I gain absolutely nothing from making any of this up I just hope that someone out there with a similar experience might read this and hopefully share their story with me. I would say about OVER 95% of the stuff on youtube is fake but after that experience I really haven't known exactly what to think since it happened. I have asked my mother about the experience multiple times since then.. possibly somewhere deep inside I want her to tell me I'm crazy… so that maybe then I could start to make sense of what happened. But to this day my mother will attest to everything I just said.

    They are there!

  • Taylor David on November 9, 2020

    Josh gates caught an Icelandic elf saying "wheeeeee!" during his investigation on his TV show years ago. But they didn't even realize it. I'll never forget it.

  • Chariot on December 15, 2020

    I love your content, Nat Geo, but your journalist was a bit disrespectful there… That attitude… Ugh

  • Lucy Star on January 9, 2021

  • Henrik Jørgensen on May 13, 2021

    I doubt that guy would've treated indigenous South American or African beliefs with the same disdain as he does this.

  • Nanette Castillo Blanco on May 25, 2021
