There has been a video making the rounds on the internet these past few days that purports to show an alleged “grey alien” from the Zeta Reticuli system. The video is on YouTube, and many other sites and blogs are talking about this video. I’ll let you take a look at the video, and then post my thoughts on it.
A lot of the sites that are talking about this video are saying that it looks legit. And to a certain degree, I would concede that point. The extraterrestrial (apparently named “skinny bob”) in the video definitely looks real enough. Even when it blinks, you can almost see muscles moving underneath the skin. But is this an actual alien from a crashed UFO?
Unfortunately (well, fortunately if you like science fiction movies), we live in an age where it is so easy to fabricate these kinds of special effects, even on a home computer. This may be nothing more than some fancy CGI. Like a lot of evidence, without any contextual basis, this can be a clip from Area 51 just as easily as it can be some leaked viral footage from an upcoming sci-fi movie. I also don’t quite get the whole “movie projector clicking” in the background. It sounds fake and inserted in there to give the film more credibility. If it is a hoax, it’s a damn good one. But I still call hoax on this.
