Fake Anonymous

There is no shortage of YouTube channels created to profit by deceiving people into watching, but the channel called Anonymous Global takes this ploy to the next level. Not only has Anonymous Global fabricated fake UFO stories, but its very identity is false, pretending to be affiliated with the infamous hacker group Anonymous while sharing none of its values and acting as a propaganda flack for frequent Anonymous target President Donald Trump. The YouTube channel should not to be confused with any other entity, including the Twitter account @YourAnonGlobal which seems to be in line with common Anonymous themes and opinions.

On The Wings of Fail: Secureteam 10

In August of 2014 when I created the original Secureteam 10 Speedebunking episode, it was an attempt to prevent a laughably simplistic hoax channel from becoming a huge waste of time. However, with the help of some high profile web sites trying to ride the Fake Train to Viraltown, it has become exactly that.

While Tyler Glockner doesn’t have technical chops, he seemed to put a lot of work into window dressing: titles, logos, little audio effects, a gear store. In fact, the stylistic effort probably took more time than the videos themselves, poorly Photoshopping UFOs into backgrounds or simply fading them into view in a video. It seems Tyler’s style appealed to worst-of-the-worst tabloid “journalist” Jon Austin of the Express UK, who decided to become an honorary member of the Secureteam. This, along with the hoax channel’s burgeoning subscriber numbers, warranted a more robust response. Hope you enjoy and share.
