I think he spattered some jelly donut goo on his cell phone.

Looks like a parachute to me.

DNW to believe in aliens as flashing dots on a cell phone. For all they know, that was a moth in the streetlight's glow.

The other video taken by the women is much better quality:

This video changed my mind, clearly its aleins.
2008-06-25 10:43:09 AM  
That's 29? With a boyfriend, even? You're ugly, England!

Why would aliens send us flashing dots? Is this a hidden message? Eat more M&Ms? Buy led lights? Drink til you drop?

I wasn't a believer until I saw that one of the sightings was near Cardiff. Now it all makes sense.

Total hoax. They even added the streetlight for good measure as a nod to Fark!!!

Anybody bother to check our local planning department at Alpha Centauri.

I saw this last night, when it opened up with a streetlight I nearly fell out of my chair.
Strange little blinky thing, though.

Klund: The other video taken by the women is much better quality:

It looks like a resistor. Maybe it's a coded message, but I don't remember how to read resistors.

/It also seems to be moving with the wind.
//Maybe the Aliens are in a gas crisis and that is their way of Hypermiling

Send us some real virgins for once so the probing may commence?

(Cut to the previous night. Roky is sitting at his artist's desk, drawing, when the garage door opens up. He turns to see a black sedan with more than just a slight resemblance to the Batmobile pull in. (TD NOTE: the film is speeded up so the car moves very quickly into the garage) The garage door closes as Roky stares in awe. The window slides down to reveal a man in black.

1ST MAN IN BLACK: No other object as been misidentified as a flying saucer more often than the planet Venus.


(Seemingly no time has passed, but Mulder and Scully are back in the room.)

That was when I realized something was weird.

SCULLY: At which point?

ROKY CRIKENSON: See, normally, if two strangers drive into my garage, I tell them to get the hell off the property. But this time, I didn't! It was like I was in a trance or something.

MULDER: What did these men look like?

ROKY CRIKENSON: Usually, I'm really good with faces, but this time, all I can remember is how they were dressed. They were...

MULDER: All in black?

(Roky stares at him, then looks at Scully, then slumps back slightly, staring at Mulder.)

ROKY CRIKENSON: How'd you know that?

MULDER: Since the '50s, people who have had close encounters have reported subsequent visits by these unearthly men in black.

(Scully seems like she thinks this is all ridiculous. Jose Chung talks over the scene.)

JOSE CHUNG: But you know, myths about men in black garments...

(Cut back to the present day, X-Files office.)

...have been recorded throughout history in many different cultures. The Celtic legends are filled with trickster men in black and how anyone who encounters them becomes enchanted.

SCULLY: Unfortunately, I'm not sure that modern reconstruction of ancient fairy tales lends any more credence to Roky's testimony.

(Cut back to the garage. The man in black steps out of the car and walks slowly towards Roky.)

1ST MAN IN BLACK: Even the former leader of your United States of America, James Earl Carter Jr., thought he saw a UFO once...

(He looks down at the document, which reads "The Truth About Aliens by Roky Crikenson.")

But it's been proven he only saw the planet Venus.

(Roky grabs the document and clutches it close to his chest, leaning back in his chair as far as possible.)

ROKY CRIKENSON: I'm a republican.

1ST MAN IN BLACK: Venus was at its peak brilliance last night. You probably thought you saw something up in the sky other than Venus, but I assure you, it was Venus.


(Roky sits up, but the man in black pushes him back to where he was.)

What I saw.

(The man in black leans in as he talks, basically scaring the hell out of Roky.)

1ST MAN IN BLACK: Your scientists have yet to discover how neural networks create self-consciousness, let alone how the human brain processes two-dimensional retinal images into the three-dimensional phenomenon known as perception.

(The man in black stands and holds his arms in disbelief.)

Yet you somehow brazenly declare seeing is believing?

(The second man in black walks over to Roky, his face shaded to all but Roky.)

Mister Crikenson, your scientific illiteracy makes me shudder, and I wouldn't flaunt your ignorance by telling anyone that you saw anything last night other than the planet Venus, because if you do, you're a dead man.

(He gets back in the car. The second man in black is already in.)

ROKY CRIKENSON: You... can't threaten me.

1ST MAN IN BLACK: I just did.

(He rolls up the window. The garage door opens and the MIB's car pulls out of the garage backwards and speeds back the way it came, backwards. Roky stares in disbelief. Seemingly no time has passed, but Roky passes the document to Mulder.)

/repeated from yesterday's streetlight thread, but it's still a great scene. I used to have a youtube link but they pulled it, bastids.

/Oh, the possibilities

I'd say this is one of the more interesting ufo recordings i've seen. so far they've got a police helicopter and soldiers on a base...have to say I'm impressed by the quality of the witnesses and the video.

it's a very big universe out there....
2008-06-25 11:23:14 AM  
Ah, found the scene here (new window). It's about 3:23 into the clip.

so, is this a full fledged UFO flap or are more sightings needed?

/flap, flap, flap

Seriously people, where the hell is Torchwood?

/they're gonna need a lot of retcon

Nobody, trust me, nobody, wants to get caught in Bromsgrove.

/yes, they do look like that here
2008-06-25 01:22:57 PM  
Too bad none of the people in the video are speaking English.

I'd really love to know what their reactions were to seeing these supposed UFOs.
2008-06-25 02:12:22 PM  
They said this:

merde sainte, c'est un UFO !
2008-06-25 04:08:30 PM  
Came for the Doctor Who references , wasn't dissappointed. Yay!
2008-06-26 12:29:07 AM  
came here looking for ALL sorts of refferences, and see nothing.

so, just what kind of hoax is this?
