If you logged on to Twitter lately and got excited to see that Venom was a trending area, we’ve got some evil news for you. There is nothing online about the highly-anticipated Venom movie sequel at the instant. There’s no trailer drop or first look photo to search for. This trend has nothing to do with the Tom Hardy film franchise. The real reason Venom is creepier than anything the movie could come up with. A video of an unknown substance has been fluctuating around online, and people are thinking it’s a factual symbiote.
DO Y’ALL KNOW WHAT IT IS?
Okay, so there’s a good chance that no one actually believes the substance is an alien symbiote, but that’s what people are appealing it is. The video of the substance was posted to Twitter on Thursday, along with the question “Anybody knows what this is?”
As you can see, the creature in the video looks and acts just like the fictional alien symbiote from the sides of Marvel Comics. It looks like a black pile of goo, it’s continuously moving, and it withdraws back into itself when the person shooting the video pulls some of it away.
WHAT DO THE FOLKS CLAIM?
Some people have claimed that this is a bootlace worm, which is often seen curled up into a pile like this. There’s also a decent chance that the video isn’t real at all, that it’s instead of some sort of special effect designed to freak people out and go viral. Both of these options are obviously more genuine than this thing is an actual symbiote, but that hasn’t stopped Twitter from freaking out about it.
FOLKS COME UP WITH CREATIVITY!
Here are some re-tweets of people who claimed what it is.

And the responses are super funny. But the video does not claim anything officially as such.
