Can you show that it hasn't?
The burden of proof falls on those who claim we are witnessing something extraordinary.

The BBC certainly seem to think it's something extraordinary, and I wager they have a lot more people there who know about video and artifacts than you do.
So I'd say it's up to you to prove them wrong.
Outside a legal context, "burden of proof" means that someone suggesting a new theory or stating a claim must provide evidence to support it: it is not sufficient to say "you can't disprove this." Specifically, when anyone is making a bold claim, either positive or negative, it is not someone else's responsibility to disprove the claim, but is rather the responsibility of the person who is making the bold claim to prove it. In short, X is not proven simply because "not X" cannot be proven (...)
The less reasonable a statement seems, the more proof it requires. (source)
it is not sufficient to say "you can't disprove this."

There have been, and still are hundreds of scientific theories that remained or remain valid just because someone couldn't, or can't disprove them.
The proposed theories of physics are usually relatively new theories which deal with the study of physics which include scientific approaches, means for determining the validity of models and new types of reasoning used to arrive at the theory. However, some proposed theories include theories that have been around for decades and have eluded methods of discovery and testing. Proposed theories can include fringe theories in the process of becoming established (and, sometimes, gaining wider acceptance). Proposed theories usually have not been tested. (source)
so to me it seems like some rocket blasted from some super high-tech ufo.... the way it shoots through like that..........
What?? It's nice to have an open mind, but really, aren't you overdoing it?

It is a bug near the camera! You can see the ripple effect of the wings like in the Rods videos.

Or it could just simply be a hoax to get people go on their website to see the video and give feedbacks and at the same time look at all the advertisments ont their website ...

Let me say that it is kicking off around here sightings are through the roof. The place is mysterious enough with secret underground areas and aircraft bases, not to mention occult site. I will say no more, and Iam not sure of the significance of the video.
Although I will mention this.... A few days a go an as yet unidentified object blasted through the house of a local old man as though a meterorite. Then the RAF came and took it away for "testing".
