    It is filmed out side the office (there is another film inside the office) of a company called BEAM.tv which is owned by the special effects company ‘The Mill’. 44 Clipstone Street for those that want to see it in Google Maps, then go to Beam.TV and look at the address at the bottom.

    Basically an attempt at a hoax/viral marketing by The Mill.

    Eh, I could do a better job at this hoax given the right video editing tools.

    Well, if they have Saucers, all they need now are Tea Cups and Tea Pots to have High Tea !!!

    I should have bought the mothership boarding pass.

    I think the “Ship” is a kids metal coated balloon of the sort Walmart and Kroger sell.

    I certainly hope this wasn’t done by pros. It was poorly done.

    In the C-charge zone, did they pay their £8?

    Quick! Someone call Harling-Straker! This is a job for S.H.A.D.O.!
    Chicks with purple hair in silver mini-skirts, and bases on the moon. Where did the 1980’s go?

    #8, Mmmmmm. Amazon Women on the Moon.

    “All your Londons are ours.”
    Well, they’re good raincoats, anyway.

    Don’t be flying saucers, that bone china is expensive these days…

    Is that the sound of a Tardis in the background?

  12. Yankinwaoz says:

    Hmmmm… there must be a UFO movie coming out soon. I’m guessing this is an attempt to start a viral buzz for Cowboys vs. Aliens.

    the hack camera work on this is essentially identical enough to real(ly awful) amateur camera work I’ve seen on countless other youtube videos of genuine events that even if I believed this was really a UFO video, there would be another very serious problem with it: nearly every person out there with a high-resolution camera (video or still) on their person at any particular point in time is a complete freaking moron. I believe that if aliens ever really did come to earth, the average person would not know about it for days, weeks or months until they were walking down the main street of their local town because the amateur videographers would be incompetent and the news would be prohibited (for classified purposes, of course. queue sheep bleating) from any more formal media venue.

    #8 UFO was set in the 1980’s, but those styles were definitely UK 1969. You can buy the complete series on DVD. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were on Netfix too.

    For me I’ll take Gerry Anderson’s other work, SPACE: 1999. Barbara Bain’s comely wenchness and coquettish acting does it for me!

    They should get the heck out of there!
    The sidewalk could give way at any moment!

    I bet the civilians not involved in the video shot think those people staring up at and video taking the sky are utter whackos.

    The “saucers” just looked like solar glare to me… and the mothership just looked like something drawn up in Corel Draw and pasted into the video..
