PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A former Sweet Home city council member has gone viral after posting a video to TikTok claiming that he spotted a mythical giant in the Cascade foothills of Linn County on Oct. 23.

In the video, Sweet Home resident James Goble said that he was traveling along Quartzville Drive near the Green Peter Reservoir when saw a distinct rock formation open like a “door.” Peeking from behind the “door,” was a giant, the former government official said. The mountain “door” allegedly closed back up before he filmed the video about the sighting, which received more than 5 million views before he took the video down.

“It looked like somebody was staring out of [it],” Goble said in the video. “Dude, giants are freaking real. I don’t care what anybody says.”
