A rapper from Goldie Lookin Chain claims to have stumbled across something magical while out for a morning stroll – a ‘frolic of fairies’.
Eggsy, real name John Rutledge, was enjoying his summer morning walk through a field, close to Newbridge,Wales, when he decided to stop and take a picture.
However, when he took the time to look through the photos he spotted something otherworldly – he claims he saw small winged creatures swooping and flying through the bushes and grass.
On closer examination, John realised that the flying creatures seemed to be translucent, 4 cm tall figures with arms, legs and wings, just like the fairy tale description of fairies.
It’s amazing. When we checked the image we couldn’t believe our eyes. Ever since childhood I’ve wanted to witness a paranormal event.
The last thing I expected was a winged entity in a wood in South Wales, but there it is, smack bang in your face – it’s solid evidence.
John is certain that his discovery proves the existence of sprites, saying: ‘I think we’ve just put one of the world’s biggest mysteries to bed’. A bold claim.
If the rapper’s right, then he should be careful. As silly as it sounds, in myths and legend, fairies aren’t the kind-hearted creatures that Disney has made them in to.
Fairies used to be associated with trickery and pranks, usually being blamed when objects went missing, but they were also sinister creatures who’d be blamed for the disappearance of children, sudden deaths, and even tuberculosis.
While the photos are certainly mysterious and interesting, we can’t help but feel a bit cynical, especially as John was scouting out locations for his new podcast series, Unexplainers, which will be investigating myths and mysteries.
So it’s pretty convenient, not to mention great press, that he stumbled across fairies while out and about…
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
