Are we sure that isn’t just a prankster in a squid costume?

That just may have turned my day around somewhat.

Both the creature and the way that that young woman seems to always
smile when she talks.

Clickbaity headline - not a “giant squid”.

Described more truthfully as “larger than a human” and a “really big squid”.

I really love that there is a technical difference between a squid that’s larger than a human and one that’s classified as giant.

Out of date now that we have video, but I enjoyed this about the actual giant squid. The Search for the Giant Squid - Wikipedia

Also, dude in the video specifically says this is not a giant squid (and explains that’s a particular species).
