Discovery News Gets to the Bottom of the ‘Dancing Squid’

We’ve all seen them. Wacky videos that friends share on Facebook or bring up from YouTube on their phones. And often we’re left to ask: “Is that for real?”

They’re also the perfect folks to uncover the truth behind some of the wacky stories that you hear online.

Sushi, anyone?
