    Slightly off-topic, but how? :confused:

    And it may have cost 50k to produce a puppet that advanced, but surely they could have just stuck a guy in a suit for very little money?

    I guess I'm just a cynical old git :rolleyes:

    If it's anything like the scene in Signs when the alien steps out of the bushes I don't want to see it. That bit chilled me! :eek:

    I don't believe it. I do believe there is intelligent life in the universe, but I find it hard to believe they have humanoid features, such as a distinguishable head and eyelids to blink with.

    I reckon when we find extraterrestrial life, it'll look nothing like we could have imagined.

    don't buy it.

    I really think that if someone had a video of an alien, there would be no waiting... there would also be no documentary... This would be the biggest thing to happen, or almost biggest thing to happen, ever.. EVER! It would already be cast all over the world etc etc. and news people all over the planet would be going apesh*t over this discovery and it would be the only thing on TV.... Or this perosn would have already been snuffed out by the feds and the video destroyed.

    I think it would be really awesome if this were real, but this just seems to be some political-hype-attention-getting-scheme-a-ma-thing.

    ..wait til friday and I'll show you my alien... to borrow a line from South Park: "Come On. I mean, Come On." - jimmy, trying to get the bloods and crips to get along.

    So I don't buy it anymore. I thought they were going to air it on the news today, not just announce that its going to be on TV. What a rip - just used for publicising a TV show.

    Unless they are going to air it on the news and my wires are just incredibly crossed.

    If there are aliens ...

    Even if the aliens recorded it in their Betamax format?
    Too bad there's no sign of it on Earth.

    Those interested can Google The Drake Equation.
    It's hardly scientific. But it may help us understand the factors involved.

    Someone is out for a quick buck. Just another con artist.

    Sounds like an attempt to build up hype.

    What would be great is if someone like Steven Spielberg secretly got together with some of Hollywood's best computer animators and special effects artists. To create an "authentic" alien autopsy or visual of space craft. Then release to the public anonymously through some everyday guy whom could not be seen as having the resources to make a fake video:D.

    Seriously... don't want to hijack the thread... but Signs actually was the scariest film I have ever ever seen. Bar none. Usually I laugh at the likes of Scream, Exorcist, etc... but Signs. Argh!

    All hype...

    The fact that there would be evidence to prove what people want to see and is not being let out based upon it being included in some guy's documentary is basically free advertising for said documentary...I for one and calling B.S.!:D

    I wouldn't mind it being authentic but something inside me says if the video has any audio we'll no doubt hear...

    "Hi Ho, Kermit the Frog here!"

    I mean a head popping up looking in a window? Quick flashback, SESAME STREET! All those damn chars were nothing but torso puppets.

    Still, a big part of me believes in ET's but it seems like they visit this planet and pick the dirtiest trailer park, or BFE farm in Iowa just to report back to their homeworld and say "No intelligent life here boss!"

    Smegging yeah, it's real.:cool: I've seen the video.:p Here's an excerpt:

    RIMMER: Incredible! A stupendous moment in my own personal history! The perfectly preserved remains of a Quagaar warrior!
    LISTER: Yeah, right, Rimmer. Absolutely.
    RIMMER: They must have looked something like ... a roast chicken.
