Koi UFO Video 066 - UFO over Nowra, Australia (2010)
Koi UFO Video 066 appears to show a UFO moving around under clouds in the night sky, lighting up the bottom of those clouds. This video was originally
posted online in 2010 with the title "UFO over Nowra, Australia Sept. 17, 2010 **ORIGINAL**".
The video was uploaded with a caption claiming that the footage was real.
In fact, as detailed at the link below, the video shows a RAAF F-111 performing a "dump-and-burn" (in which a fuel dump is ignited) over Brisbane (not
Nowra) as part of the Riverfire festival in September 2010. A dump-and-burn is a fuel dump in which the fuel is ignited, intentionally, using the
plane's afterburner. A spectacular flame combined with high speed makes this a popular display for air shows or as a finale to a fireworks show. The
sound appears to have been deliberately turned off in the "UFO" video to hinder identification of the true nature of the "UFO". After a member of the
AboveTopSecret.com discussion forum ("gift0fpr0phecy") gave detailed evidence to support this view (including detailed comparisons between the "UFO"
video and footage shot at another location of the "dump-and-burn"), the person that uploaded the video subsequently posted on Youtube that
gift0fpr0phecy had been right and "this video is BS" and that he had "had a good lol" (laugh-out-loud). The uploader stated that "challenges are nice
once in a while" and that "It's video's like this that separate those of us who have logic and those who don't".
That admission by the video uploader had he "had a good lol" (laugh-out-loud) about his upload and that "it's the last F-11 that will do a dump and
burn over Brisbane" has been deleted from the Youtube comments. As with the apparently deliberate removal of the sound, the deletion of that admission
appears to be designed to hinder identification of the true source of the video. The video remains on Youtube and continues to get views there.
Koi UFO Video 067 - Mazsalaca meteorite/UFO (Tele2)
Koi UFO Video 067 appears to show an object burning in a crater. Media around the world (including the BBC) reported the fall of a "meteorite" on the
outskirts of the town of Mazsalaca in Latvia.
Some UFO websites suggested that a "UFO" had crashed into the Latvian countryside.
In fact, as discussed at the link below, the Tele2 telecommunications company subsequently admitted that the entire event was a hoax designed by it.
The Latvian government was distinctly unamused by the costs it incurred investigating the "crash" and indicated that it would be fining the
telecommunications company for the hoax.
Koi UFO Video 069 - Canadian Spiral (Kevin Martin)
Koi UFO Video 069 appears to show a white spiral developing behind a moving white light in a twilight sky. A sound of crickets can be heard on the
This video was posted in 2010 by "TheWeatherSpaceNews" with a caption claiming that this "UFO Spiral" had been "seen and heard across Western Canada".
One copy of this video on Youtube had over 630,000 views at at March 2015.
In fact, as discussed at the link below, relatively soon after the video was posted in 2010, Kevin Martin admitted that he had posted the video as a
hoax to test whether Americans or Europeans were more gullible. The admission of a hoax surprised very few people, since most comments that had been
made online regarding the video prior to the admission of a hoax suggested that it showed fairly basic Computer Generated Imagery ("CGI").
More surprising (indeed, incredible...) was Kevin Martin's subsequent claim that his admission of a hoax was false. Even if someone were prepared to
give credibility to someone that admitted a hoax then said he had not been telling the truth when admitting a hoax (and also prepared to ignore the
similarities of the video to basic CGI...), Kevin Martin's withdrawal of his admission of a hoax would still have to be considered in the light of his
other public statements over the years - which include some pretty weird and wonderful "official" weather warnings that prompted the National Weather
Service to issue a statement clarifying that Kevin Martin had no connection with it. The material released by Kevin Martin over the years provides
more entertainment than it provides grounds for believing anything said by him.
Koi UFO Video 070 ("The Orion Conspiracy") shows various still photographs (including the one at the link below), apparently as part of a slide show
in a secret briefing.
Some of those still photos (particularly the one above) have become popular on social media website such as Facebook.
As detailed at the link below, the video is in fact a short fictional movie by Seb Janiak (a French photographer and director) containing numerous
hoaxed photos (some of which were created for the video whereas others were hoaxes borrowed from other sources).
Koi UFO Video 071 appears to show a stereotypical "grey" alien in a dark room making some unintelligible sounds, while Portuguese is spoken.
In fact, as discussed at the link below, the "Captive Gray" videos were CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) artwork by Brazilian CGI artist Philipe Kling
David . The videos were created by him as part of his story called "O relato de um MIB" ("The report of a MIB"). The video was created by Philipe
Kling David using the 3dsMax software package, on a weekend.
Koi UFO Video 072 – Green Sphere (TheFakingHoaxer)
Koi UFO Video 72 appears to show a rotating green sphere moving in the sky, passing behind tree branches.
The creator of the video, an individual with the username "The Faking Hoaxer", posted a video giving an explanation of how he created the green sphere
footage using compositing and video editing techniques. He has made a number of other impressive "UFO" videos, which he accompanies with statements
that they are hoaxes. He has stated in interviews that he sometimes gets accused of hoaxing his hoaxes, i.e. suggestions that they are in fact real
footage, despite showing how he created his videos. He has expressed rather dim views of "UFO nutters", who believe hoaxed videos because "they want
Koi UFO Video 073 – Orange County ring (Steve Zingali)
Koi UFO Video 073 appears to show a ring shaped flying object.
As discussed at the link below, this video shows Linn Murphy operating a 3 foot ring-shaped remote controlled toy aircraft designed by Steve Zingali.
Local media coverage in Orange County from 2007 suggests that the model aircraft "spiked Orange County's unidentified flying object sightings for the
past three years" and had "fooled thousands" - although in fact I have so far been unable to find any "UFO" videos showing the model aircraft other
than those put online to promote sales of the toy aircraft. I wonder if there was an element of hype involved by those selling the relevant toy
aircraft. The toy aircraft was sold for US$ 1,000.
Koi UFO Video 074 – UFO landing in New Mexico (Oondya)
Koi UFO Video 074 is a video appearing to show a UFO filmed from a moving vehicle. The UFO appears to go behind several buildings.
One copy of the video on Youtube (with the title "UFO landing in New Mexico") has over half a million views as at October 2014.
As detailed at the link below, this is one of several hoaxed UFO video signed (pun intended) by the hoaxer, CGI artist "Oondyla". Other UFO viral
videos created by Oondyla (and also signed by him) include one appearing to show two jets escorting a UFO (see Koi UFO Video 059). Both video have a
sign with "Oondyla" on it. In the case of the jet video, the name appears on a road sign. In the case of the "UFO landing in New Mexico" video, the
name clearly appears on a sign on a building in the foreground of the video.
Koi UFO Video 075 – Los Rosques ufos (Manbird12000 - Damien White)
Koi UFO Video 075 is footage which appears to show a large saucer-shaped craft flying over a building and a number of palm trees. A caption at the
beginning of the video asserts that the footage was "taken from Los Rosques Isla los rosques at 8.32pm" on 15 August 2007.
The earliest copy of this video on Youtube was uploaded by "Manbird12000" on 15 August 2007. That video has had over 2 million years as at October
2014. Other copies of the video have also been posted on Youtube and elsewhere.
In fact, as discussed below, the video was created by Damien White, a "visual/audio/musical artist" and "visual effects creator and composer", in the
USA. He has posted CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) videos on Youtube as part of his efforts to seek funding for a science fiction movie. It was
created by Damien White using the Vue6 software, i.e. the same software used by French artist/animator David Nicolas to create the better-known Haiti
Koi UFO Video 076 - UFO attacks a truck in Germany and flies into tunnel
Koi UFO Video 076 appears to be a news report on the "PNC" television channel about a UFO lifting a truck off a road near Stuttgart, Germany. This
footage is sometimes combined with a related video showing a "UFO" flying into a tunnel. Versions of the video are also online appearing to show the
relevant footage on a Japanese television channel.
In fact, as discussed at the link below, these "UFO" videos were produced by Malaysian production company Director's Think Tank as part of a
science-fiction themed advertising campaign created by Leo Burnett for Petronas (a Malaysian energy company) and AMG Mercedes (which has its
headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany). This has kindly been confirmed to me by Watchmen Productions, a German company that had provided local film
services in Stuttgart for the filming of the main commercials in the advertising campaign and "team members were asked to help out spontaneously as
'cameo' actors for a teaser video".
Koi UFO Video 077 appears to be footage from a dashboard camera (a "dashcam") showing a police officer approaching a car and then being incinerated.
This video appears online with titles such as "alien attacks police officer CNN BREAKING NEWS" and "Alien attacks police officer".
A copy of the video on Youtube uploaded by John Hutchison in July 2011 has over 3.8 million views as at October 2014.
In fact, as detailed at the link below, the video was one of the "Promicin" series of online videos created to advertise a new season of the
science-fiction series "The 4400".
Koi UFO Video 078 – Fun UFO / Missile launch from water
Koi UFO Video 078 is an obvious joke, but since it has over 10 MILLION views on Youtube (as at October 2014), I thought I'd briefly cover it in my
series of webpages on infamous "UFO" videos. This video appears to show a very large stereotypical flying saucer lifting off from a sea, with a
rocket flame appearing to emerge from its underside.
I hesitate to say this video has been debunked since it was always clearly intended to be just a joke. The text accompanying the video says "(The
"Einstein Award" goes to all of you who say it's "fake" lol)".
This video, in case anyone needed an explanation, is in fact an edited version of a Trident submarine missile launch. The creator of the footage
("TimelessDimensions") has also uploaded various other joke videos, including a version of this video which has a cow being superimposed over the
missile in the same footage and also videos entitled "Zebra & Elephant breeding fail" and "Horse & Sheep breeding fail".
Koi UFO Video 079 – UFO behind clouds (Brazilian marketing)
Koi UFO Video 079 appears to show someone stopping driving a car to film a UFO behind some clouds. After a flash of light, a smaller object dropping
at the link below the clouds towards the ground.
One of the copies of this video on Youtube (with the title "UFO Hiding behind the cloud São Paulo, Brazil 24 Feb 2011") has over 250,000 views as at
In fact, as discussed at the link below, this video was a hoax created by Atitude Comunicação, a Brazilian marketing firm, as part of a viral
advertisement for Atitude Media Box (the Brazilian partner of German company PizzBoxx) - which sell advertising on pizza boxes.
Koi UFO Video 080 – "UFO Over Santa Clarita" (Meni Tsirbas and Gnomon School)
Koi UFO Video 080 appears to show someone driving on a road through a desert when a UFO flies over the car and towards some power lines before a large
UFO mothership suddenly appears and then disappears.
One copy of the video on Youtube has over 1.5 million views as at October 2014.
In fact, as discussed at the link below, the video was a hoax directed by Canadian visual effects artists Aristomenis Tsirbas ("Meni Tsirbas") of
MeniThings Productions in partnership with the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. Meni was responsible for direction, animation and lighting. Gnomon
School students were assigned concept design, modeling and texturing. All the elements of the video are CGI ("Computer Generated Imagery"), including
the landscape, sky, car and power-lines.
Koi UFO Video 081 appears to show a UFO hovering above some parked trucks alongside a road. Two jets appear to fly passed the UFO.
This video was discussed in articles by The Sun and The Daily Mail newspapers during 2010, as well as in the media in several other countries. One
copy of the video on Youtube has nearly 1 million views. Nick Pope told The Sun: ‘This is one of the best videos I’ve seen'
In fact, as discussed at the link below, this video was a hoax created by Youtube user "princessmarije" using the Vue 7 graphics system (i.e. a later
edition of the Vue software used by David Nicolas to create the Haiti UFO video and by Damien White to create the "Los Rosques" UFO videos).
Koi UFO Video 082 - Rubber Johnny alien video (Chris Cunningham)
Koi UFO Video 082 appears to show a humanoid figure with a very large head. In some shots the figure is seated in a wheelchair. One copy of relevant
footage with the title "E.T Capturado Pela Nasa" (Portuguese for E.T Captured By NASA) has over 2.6 million views as at October 2014. Another copy
entitled "THE REAL LEAKED ALIEN FOOTAGE! WARNING: DISTURBING VIDEO" has over 1.7 million views. The video is regularly posted on UFO discussion forums
and Facebook pages, inspiring many comments about the "creepy" and "disturbing" nature of the footage.
As detailed at the link below, the footage in this video is extracted from a music video entitled "Rubber Johnny". The video was directed by Chris
Cunningham and features music by Aphex Twin. The full video lasts 6 minutes and shows the relevant figure talking and dancing. The humanoid figure
in the video is in fact the director, Chris Cunningham, wearing prosthetic makeup created by Neill Gorton.
Koi UFO Video 084 appears to show a meteor-like object in the night sky, emitting sparks and frequently changing direction. This is one of several
very similar videos that are regularly posted on UFO discussion forums.
In fact, as discussed at the link below, the video shows night skydivers with magnesium flares. Videos of some night-time parachute jumps (by teams
such as the US Army Golden Knights team) are included at the link below.
One of the problems within ufology is someone saying that a certain explanation (e.g. a meteor) does not explain the evidence, when no-one ever
suggested that it was in fact a meteor! Basically, a "straw-man explanation" is set up and then attacked - rather than all possible explanations given
It is also amusing to note that many of the discussions of the above video immediately jumped to the conclusion that it clearly shows CGI (Computer
Generated Imagery), when in fact that explanation is completely wrong. Some people have now become so jaded by "UFO" videos that, in the absence of
any other conclusion being obvious to them, simply conclude it must be hoaxed footage. In fact, many "UFO" videos and photographs are not hoaxed but
are simply misinterpretations of mundane objects or put online out of context (whether innocently or deliberately) .
Koi UFO Video 085 appears to show a triangular craft causing a large explosion, with a tank in the foreground. It was uploaded to Youtube in May 2014
with a caption stating that it US marines had filmed a mysterious UFO attacking a Taliban cam in the Asadabad District of Afghanistan in March 2014.
Many of the early comments on the video speculated that it should a TR-3B (a secret flying triangle aircraft operated by the US Air Force).
One copy of the video on Youtube has approximately 2.5 million views as at October 2014. The video was the subject of an article by a popular British
newspaper, The Daily Mail.
In fact, the "triangular craft" was CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) inserted into footage of an explosion which had been online since 2007, i.e. for
about 7 years before the "UFO" event supposedly occurred. The original footage is embedded at the link below. Behind the Youtube username that
uploaded this "UFO" video (i.e. Section 51) is a small team that describe themselves as "Internet-video creators specialized in dreaming up sci-fi,
action YouTube videos, jam-packed with stunning VFX". They offer various incentives for those prepared to provide funding for their projects. For
example, in return for a small fee, they offer to take the video of your choice and "we insert an original UFO on it".
Koi UFO Video 087 appears to show a ring of lights in the night sky above some trees, with lights appearing to fly in and out the ring formation. The
video has a caption indicating it was filmed in Phoenix (Arizona) on 5th June 2005.
The video was posted in 2005 and gained considerable publicity, including via the rense.com website. The publicity prompted supportive comments from
various ufologists and video editing experts, including David Sereda (famous for his analysis of NASA "UFO" videos).
In fact, Brian Bessent confessed in 2006 that he had hoaxed the video. He posted a diatribe on his ufotheatre.com website about the gullibility of
the UFO community. He explained that he hoaxed UFO videos to make money and that this was very easy to do. He referred, in particular, to his use of
the "Bryce" animation software plus "stoner techniques", which involved him getting stoned before filming. Apart from getting stoned before making his
videos, he referred to getting stoned using the money he made from his videos - commenting that he "made thousands and bought hella dank .. and bongs
# i smoked so much i think i nearly died ... all thanks to rense!".
Brian Bessent commented that "making money off UFOs requires no talent other than a slightly higher intelligence than that of your intended
