Extreme Expeditions author Adam Davies’ just-released footage of the “Seljord Serpent” or Selma is actually secret footage that has never been released before. (See my previous blog on this sterling example of blobdracontology, here.)
Jan-Ove Sundberg of the Swedish group GUST writes:
The Selma video you now write about at Cryptomundo was taken on our expedition to Lake Seljordsvattnet in 1999.
That Adam & Co. took it has been kept a secret by them until now, but GUST have published many articles about the video. See this feature [which is in Swedish] published in 2005 (I have taken no less than 4 different pictures in there myself).
The reason I haven’t published it on [my site] is that Adam Davies forbid me to do so. Now I guess the time has come.

Of course, the reality may live someplace other than in what Sundberg states. The controversial Swedish figure may be misusing the word “secret.” The footage aired some time ago on the “Richard and Judy” show in the UK, which is their equivalent of “Oprah,” according to Adam Davies. Davies appears to have merely not allowed Sundberg to use the footage himself.
The uploading of the footage on YouTube and its playing on Cryptomundo are its first showings on the Internet, but not publicly.
