Russian Dead Alien Video: A Hoax
Dead Alien Video from Siberia is Fake
A video shot in Siberia which supposedly shows the discovery of a frozen alien corpse is, alas, fake. The dead alien video hit Youtube on April 17, and has since gotten over five million views. The video was uploaded by an account associated with All News Web, a paranormal and UFO site.
The dead alien video is tied to a series of UFO reports in Siberia over the past month, and the video detail section asks, "Is the alien seen in this video a survivor of that crash who managed to leave the area only to die as a result of Russia's harsh conditions?"
The short answer is "no". Why would they film the empty landscape before finding the body? Surely you only start filming only when there's something to film. Why does the alien body look so much like Hollywood aliens? It also doesn't help that the filmmakers are laughing as they shoot. That messes with the believability factor.
Having the dead alien's leg chewed off was a nice touch, though.
