    oh WHAT THE FUCK EVER.

    I was more convinced by the Alien Autopsy video.

    The blinking was cool, but Jim Henson has done better than that. It looked like a head on a stick. At least Kermit has a torso.

    I give this approximately 10 hours before it's become a mock-worthy meme, with dozens of YouTube spoofs that have, variously, Michael Jackson, Gary Glitter and LongCat peering-in through the window. Within 4 months it'll be referenced in a pop video. Within a year it'll be spoofed in the latest film in the "Scary/Epic/Whatever Movie" franchise.

    Oh, I didn't know that aliens were muppets.

    EDIT: oh no wait, I did

    The real aliens

    That's just weak.

    Sorry for spamming, but this youtube video is apparently a fake masquerading as the "real" alien footage.
    Phil Plait has the story on Bad Astronomy

    What's really sad about the whole UFO contactee culture is its . . . nineteenfiftyishness.

    That is actually a really good point.

    THAT'S how you fake, Mr. Peckman. Not an alien peeking through a fucking window, as if aliens who have the technology to travel across the galaxies need someone to go down there and take a look to see if anyone's home. "Yeah, XLPZIG 2, we have hyperspace, but we're still working on everything else. So go down there and check that window. Be careful. Take that pointed stick with you".

    Oh man. THAT was the alien? PUPPET! HAH. I do like the blinking, but eh. Blinks looked too slow, deliberate. I'm sure whoever made the puppet had fun with it, though.
    At my college we used to take mock UFO photos for one of our classes; it was a lot of fun.

    Oh man. THAT was the alien?


    According to Paul, no it's a fake (of the fake), and I'm with him. The "real" (massive quotes) video has not been youtubed yet.

    Ah. Just scrolled up and read the article. A fake of a fake.

    ...I want to make an alien puppet now.

    I'm interested in seeing the 'real' version, after seeing the article with the capture. Not really impressed, just curious. The whole thing reminds me a bit of that scare tactics show, if anyone here's watched it.... or of having wild deer at my mom's house peek at me from my window at early morning and scare the crap out of me.
