OK, so it's a movie prop. I still have some questions:
* How did the owner get it into his family room? How does he get it out?
* He says it flies, but we don't see it flying, we only see snapshots of it, possibly superimposed on other imagery of the neighborhood. I'd like
to see an actual video of this thing in motion - I have some doubts about it being actually functional whatsoever.
* The owner says he "bought it" for $10K. Really? From whom? Can we check with the previous owner? He says it was in movies like Mars Attacks,
and MIBII, yet the prop in those films did not appear functional, merely CG-animated. It shouldn't be too hard to confirm with the studios producing
those films regarding the functionality of this "IFO".
* The owner says it can fly, but there is no visible propulsion mechanism, no ports, no sign of it having ever left the ground. The owner also says
the means of propulsion is "a secret". Big red flag there. "A Secret", eh? Maybe a visit from any number of government "Acronym Agencies"
would have this guy change his tune in a hurry. I call bogus on this.
* The neighbor who says he saw it flying over the houses and trees did not sound credible or honest to me whatsoever. My guess is that he's in
cahoots with his buddy, the owner down the street, and they have a great laugh over a few beers about how they "fooled" everyone.
* The news people were pathetic. As usual, they give the typical 'curtain of ridicule" set-up, complete with the requisite childish comments and
giggling to each other. Then our bubbling blond journalist (is there any other kind these days) proceeds to swallow hook, line, and sinker from
"prop-man", determined to give us her "man-in-the-street" perspective. What an insult. And network news channels wonder why viewers are
abandoning them in droves. Go figure.
Bottom Line: We've got a couple of clowns trying to have some fun with a plywood and silver spray-paint "flying" saucer that actually doesn't fly
at all. It wouldn't surprise me if the owner's wife is furious for him wasting 10,000 dollars on the piece of junk and has threatened to leave
him if he doesn't get rid of the thing - she wants him or "it", and preferably both, out of the house, NOW! The guy probably convinced his wife he
can "get on the news" and may even be able to make some money with the thing. You know, like charge admission or something to see it. But he has
to build up some publicity first.
*yawn* Ok - that's enough.
When you can come up with a video of this guy actually floating this contraption out of his living room give us a shout. In the meantime, if you can
reach him, please tell him I have some great swampland in Florida for sale - which is actually a vortex to another dimension! Yeah, that's the
ticket Oh - and tell him to bring the saucer...
