Live Leak: Oil Rig Cam Catches Sight of "Sea Monster"

Well... some kind of brownish-colored jellyfish or something.

But I'm not sure it's right to just say it's a jellyfish, though I think it is. It's certainly not a creature most people have seen before. I haven't. I imagine it will just be a couple of days before Art Vandelay, Marine Biologist, informs us it's a jellyfish of a less-known sort, but it's still... weird. Update: This video is from last year and it has in fact been identified as a deepstaria reticulum, a kind of jellyfish. Thanks to Inspector Cussword and @rdbrewer4.

This is not some sort of weasel. Although, let me say, when I first saw it swimming away I though "Oh for God's sakes, that's just a bear, swimming underwater." And a bear is a kind of weasel.

But it's not that. It comes back and shows off, and it's all weird and stuff. At various times it looks like a limbless squid*, and then some kind of manta, and then a jellyfish.

If you want, you can play the theme to Sea Hunt while watching the silent video.

Or, you could play this as the audio.

Thanks to @slublog.

* This "limbless squid" thing is my best guess. It definitely moves like a squid, and it looks like some kind of cephalopod. But I don't know of any cephalopods that don't have limbs and just appear to be undulating brown sheets.

Maybe a clam without its shell.

Another possilbility is that it's some kind of animal that got trapped inside a brown plastic trash bag.

Video of the Jellyfish:

It's a kind of medusa jellyfish.
