Sewer Creatures

(YouTube link)

This sewer-cam video from Raleigh, North Carolina has been inspiring nausea all over the web. Deep Sea News contacted experts to find out what kind of creature this could be.
They are clumps of annelid worms, almost certainly tubificids (Naididae, probably genus Tubifex). Normally these occur in soil and sediment, especially at the bottom and edges of polluted streams. In the photo they have apparently entered a pipeline somehow, and in the absence of soil they are coiling around each other.

Read more about annelid worms and see more videos, if you have the stomach for it. -via a comment at Digg

It's promoting the sequel of a Japanese horror flick called The Host.

Did nobody else spot the wiki links all updated the day the video appeared?

Check out this cached page here:

Which was obviously taken down at the studios request, but none the less it's a nice bit of work!
