If Bigfoot exists, is it really the ancient ape Gigantopithecus?

I've recently been hearing more and more about Bigfoot again. It seems that this legend never goes away... I should have entitled this post "the sasquatch that never dies," instead. Anyway, most of the sightings of this massive creature are in the northwest region of the U.S., like Washington. On the other side of the world, they have a similar mystery beast that supposedly roams around, called the abominable snowman (also known as the Yeti Monster). Although many critics say that all of these sightings are bogus, etc., I'm starting to wonder if we may be dealing with an ancient ape that never went extinct. One such possibility is the Gigantopithecus. If you want more information about that prehistoric ape, feel free to do a quick web search online.
The point is, if this is true, it wouldn't be the first time something was discovered after being thought to be extinct by the scientific community. One of the more popular examples is the Coelacanth fish, which was thought to have gone extinct 65 million years ago, only to be found alive, swimming and well, in 1938. But anyway, after reading a bit more online about bigfoot stories, I came across a cool video that tried to enhance the well-known film from a few decades ago, that claimed to have actual video footage of a sasquatch in motion. The YouTube video is only a little over 12 minutes and if you're interested, you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKUwdHex1Zs

So, what do you think? Is Bigfoot just a big joke? Is it an ancient ape that never went extinct, such as the Gigantopithecus? Does Bigfoot even exist at all? Hey, this subject does remind me of the movie "Harry and the Hendersons." Ha!

Side Note: I actually think that all of this hoopla & ballyhoo about Bigfoot (especially the TV shows like "Finding Bigfoot") is a load of crap.  I see these type of creatures every time I go into a grocery store... LOL!
