I saw this one on Twitter--hard to know the context. Has anyone heard anything more? Definitely looks like a not-very-well smallish Archi. Wonder what the events were leading up to the footage.

Hi T! If you go to the post (you can click on the Twitter bird logo on the upper-right of the post above), and scroll down, you will see 1) another video of it, and 2) Vecchione's hot take on it -- he says it's Archi, and to your point, not well (..."looks dead" is the exact quote. I wonder where @OB is on this?

Architeuthis, based on all info this clip gives. I seem to recall footage like this from an A. Dux specimen that eventually ended up dead along a jetty, I can do a quick scan on youtube to see whether or not I might retrieve it🤔
