Here’s a big surprise: Serbian video of dead “alien” is a hoax.

Over the weekend one of my relatives asked me if I had seen that Russian dead alien video that’s been racking up hits on YouTube. I replied that I had not. Then they asked me if I thought it was a fake. Absolutely, I said.

But how can you be so sure when you haven’t seen the video, they asked. Because it would take more than a video clip by some random yahoo on the Internet to convince me, I said. At which point the conversation got into whether or not I think life exists elsewhere in the Universe (I do) and if so then why can’t they have visited us (because I understand the problems of travel between star systems and while life may be abundant, sentient life may be less so). So on and so forth.

And it turns out I was right:

A video of what was claimed to be a mutilated alien corpse, which scored hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, has turned out to be fake.

The tiny “dead alien” is just skin from chicken filled with bread, reports the website 7d.org.ua. Police questioned the men who claimed to have found the “body” and they allegedly confessed to creating it themselves.

It’s amazing how quickly some hoaxers will fess up when they think they’re about to be charged with a crime”

The chief editor of the local Kabansk-Info newspaper initially thought that it was the body of an infant in the video and alerted the police.  Officers immediately started the investigation and identified the alleged author.

They went to his house and asked him about the infant’s body.  The scared man reportedly showed a fake alien corpse.  It was even painted in “alien colors”.  Scolding is the only possible punishment for such a stunt as it cannot be considered a crime, the report says.

Yes, even in Russia, stupidity still isn’t a crime.

  1. The police report is obviously a coverup. Alien infiltration has penetrated even into Siberia. Beware.

    A trick of the light. An Alliance lie! Swamp gas! A wizard did it! Infinite Dragonflight!

  3. I did explain in the same conversation that I realized that story was fake it was the possibility of life elsewhere. Yes, I do see and understand space travel enough to know that the probability of them traveling to Earth is very unlikely.

    Alternate Dimensions or Parallel Universes should be another topic we should discuss next time. We sort of delved in to the discussion but not in length.

    Was nice to see you and Anne at Easter. I should see about finding time to have Justin and I come visit you too in the future.

  4. Alica, I didn’t mention you by name on purpose. I wasn’t trying to embarrass you with this post. 🙂
