  • Hoax UFO Videos Are Like Porn

    Browsing the UFO channels, I came to a realization: The NDestinationUnknown Youtube channel, claiming to have “The Best UFO Sightings” has not one authentic video clip. Every single one includes badly composited computer generated imagery.

    I went back to their very first video from two years ago, and searched forward. Really bad fakes. Every. Single. One. The fact that one of their posts has over 400,000 views makes me want to weep for humanity. The video that got that many views is so incredibly bad. They put in almost no effort to make the stuff look real.

    I know people who make comedy sketches for Youtube. Really great stuff, made by a team of talented writers, performers, editors, and other artists who have honed their craft for many years, often with no compensation.  On average, their videos get about the same number of views as a fake UFO channel, for about one hundred times the effort.

    There’s one other genre that has an equal or greater appeal compared to the effort required: porn. Consider the similarities: Continue reading  Post ID 68

  • Looknowtv’s Latest Ploy: Honey, I Shrunk The Discs

    Having proved unsuccessful at faking clear, close-up UFO video clips (see UFO Theater Ep. 1), profiteer UFO Youtube channel Looknowtv is trying a different tactic. In their latest post, “BEST UFO SIGHTINGS FEBRUARY 2014” they shrink UFOs to miniscule sizes where low resolution and compression obscure any evidence of tampering. Continue reading  Post ID 68

  • Drama Queen UFO Documentarian is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

    The fake UFO channel everybody loves to hate, thirdphaseofmoon (which I won’t link to, because seriously) recently posted an interview with UFO documentarian Michael Horn who, according to producer Blake, was “back by poplar demand,” which I assume to mean the very trees cried out for more of him.

    Horn is “the North American Publicist for the alleged UFO Contactee, Eduard Albert ‘Billy’ Meier.” If you’re not familiar with Meier, look him up. I’m not going down that bottomless rabbit hole. And “North American”? Does that mean there’s a South American, European and African publicist as well? Has Billy become MeierCorp International?

    The way these appearances work is somebody comes on to promote their product, in this case Michael Horn’s documentary And Did They Listen?, a title which already sounds like it’s scolding somebody, and thirdphaseofmoon gets free content (5 commercial breaks! Cha-ching!). As is the custom with TPM interviews, the guest is never challenged on any of their assertions. To say they lob softball questions is demeaning to softballs. It has to be that way, or nobody will appear on your channel unless you’re Joe Rogan, who can get actual celebrities on his show.

    The best way to describe Horn’s mood is outrage. He has been wronged. He has attempted to have a screening of his film at Arizona State University, and has been rebuffed. In his own words: Continue reading  Post ID 68
