Now, if it had been caught giving a probe to a Koala Bear...maybe.

Part of the Australian ufo wave hoax.
In April 2006, the Australian Film Commission funded an experimental digital video project by director Christopher Kenworthy. Between June and mid-August 2006 thirty-one clips of UFOs were created. The UFO videos were distributed over the internet via websites and video podcasts.
The project was hugely successful, being viewed by many millions of people. Very few people suspected that the clips were manufactured. Gradually, the level of plausibility was reduced, but only when the last two clips were uploaded did a large number of people get suspicious. It's also worth noting that two of the UFO clips we distributed were quite genuine - and no researcher was able to pick which two they were.
Kenworthy says, 'I wanted to give people a taste of the drama and excitement of a UFO Close Encounter, creating a genuine sense of wonder.'
The project was covered extensively in Adobe Photoshop Forensics by Cynthia Baron.
