Their fake UFO video was so convincing that it was picked up by the Paranormal Network. Shortly after, another UFO site copy-and-pasted the video, and another, and then even a foreign-language site calling itself UFO Video Italia. Somebody else somehow stretched the 18-second clip into a two-minute epic, complete with ultra-slow-motion zooms and dramatic backing vocals that seemed to come from a strange marriage of Jerry Bruckheimer and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Some viewers pronounced the video as conclusive proof of the existence of extraterrestrials. Others denounced it as a fake, but with impressive and elaborate CGI imagery.

Awesome, great kids too... I really hope they're getting more access to that video camera, we've got a couple of young James Camerons'. I used to terrify my babysitters as a kid by doing special make-up effects, like a bone poking out my arm with blood and stuff.

Personally i can't understand how people could be tricked into thinking it's a ufo when it's obviously a reflection off the window, bad acting included. I mean you could see the window frame at the beginning of the video.
Yes, and that plus the fact it became an international incident speaks volumes to the gullibility of too many people ready to believe anything at the drop of a hat with only a crappy video for evidence.
