You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....
I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

That's a bear with a large fish . Note how the trunk never moves. Also, no sign of tusks or the 'mammoth's ears. And generally, the way it moves and the shape of the head makes it 100% clear to me that's a brown bear. (trust your friendly neighboor biologist on this).
Also, at this age and year, I don't believe in "my camera could only make a blurry shot" arguments anymore. I can make better videos with my not-smart phone.
People who have no idea about how stuff like Photoshop or video editing software works will also believe any hoax these days. My father, who only started browsing the web a few years ago keeps sending me stuff like THIS as undisputable truth and a proof of conspiracies and aliens and whatnot. As a die-hard sceptic, you can obviously guess my frustration at it.
That one's probably also either fake (or just a big snake), but it's more interesting than 'Obviously-Not-A-Mammoth' up there.
Fake, rather. Snakes don't have a head this big compared to their bodies. Also note how the thing never sinks despite hardly moving or waving anything and it doesn't have any fins to support it...

I don't see why that on its own would mean people wouldn't take it seriously; The fact that the whole idea is so ridiculous, on the other hand, should have everyone going in sceptical. And of course, it's obviously not a mammoth, but some people will believe it I guess.

True ghost/cryptid/whatever hunters would never use such a thing! They're chock full of filters and image altering gadgets that make exciting and interesting but highly implausible things look like normal, everyday stuff. Like the Youtube filters that made what was clearly a mammoth to those filming it into a dumb old brown bear with a fish. Blah!
