It's beginning to look just as likely that they're part of a viral marketing stunt for a Hollywood movie, however. Several skeptical YouTube users have pointed out how the UFO clips appear to have been digitally manipulated.


That hasn't stopped one of the videos clocking up more than a million views, just a few weeks before the release of Battle: Los Angeles.

So there you have it folk's the ufo is a staged event for the movie battle of la.
Go figure i though tit was 100% proof of ufo's..they had what 5 point of views at it lol

" But this latest sighting had been proving more difficult to dismiss -- as it was recorded from four different perspectives.

Adding to the mystery is the fact that flying over the Dome of the Rock landmark -- an ancient Islamic shrine -- is forbidden"


We can't even debunk events that happen in 2011 in a major city . But were gonna try and unriddle the NWO ?

lol

So you're telling me that the three yet-to-be-debunked Jerusalem UFO videos are viral marketing for a movie that is based in the United States? Wouldn't you think, with a week left before the movie's launch, they'd take credit for the videos to actually *promote* the video? Or is this a new form of implied viral marketing?

Sorry, to me, it just doesn't add up. I'm not convinced, by any means, that this is viral marketing.

So Foxnews claims it's viral marketing I guess it's case closed huh?
I'm still not sure how I feel about this one but for any news agency to jump on the story this late in the game does nothing to sway me in either direction.

So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the stunt. Hell, no one has been able to prove that the 'stunt' was faked. I'll admit defeat when someone takes responsibility for the alleged hoax. Until then, I'll be happy as a clam.

Additionally, if this actually is a viral marketing stunt, what would be the motivation to create an obviously fake version of the video? It makes no sense. If anything, the third, hoaxed video makes it less likely that it's a viral marketing stunt.

If this is the case, what does it do to the search for UFOs? Its like having Hollywood planting artifacts in an egyptian tomb to promote a film.
Short of "your own eyes", what can you truly believe? Then even IF you have footage, nobody can believe YOUR footage... Marketing/Sales people are scum of the Universe.

If it's PR, it's not for another Alien movie, it's PR for UFO's, liike those many Alien/UFO movies coming out in the next time (unfortuately mainly negative movies, except for Paulie).

oh yeah,news is news alright





also do you have any proof to why we should be "admitting defeat"? this why i hate talking about UFOs with people, everyone claims they have seen one but as soon as there's a new video it must be fake

Hoaxers, true believers, debunkers, and true skeptics alike can learn a lesson from this incident. Jumping to conclusions without solid irrefutable evidence is dangerous to ones eternal online reputation. It seemed very suspicious from the outset, and now we find that this remarkable video was, and is, most likely a promotion for an upcoming movie. Even the most hard core skeptics (like me), want this phenomenon to be true, but the constant flood of high quality, high production value hoaxes make discerning the real deal very, very difficult.

I can envision a scenario where an actual video taped alien landing would be dismissed as a hoax. And who can blame anyone for being skeptical in this time when fake UFO videos have become ubiquitous, (commonplace). The effect of all this trickery and fooling around is that if and when the real event occurs no one will believe it, the cry wolf scenario has made it extremely difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Unless genuine Alien artifacts or samples are obtained, even clear high definition video of an encounter will be dismissed as more fabricated UFO garbage. 2011 marks the beginning of a new era of doctored and manufactured videos that are very difficult to spot.

Still, the work done on this site by the AboveTopSecret members has been very effective, the video in question was analyzed and dissected in an impressive display of expertise. Even before this recent disclosure was made, the members of this site were among the first to show that the videos were suspicious and had many red flags regarding their authenticity.

They don't really have to say wht it's advertising if this is the case. Generate hits and interest, eventually reveal what you're advertising by then the public are hooked.

They used this kind of ad campaign for years about different products. Makes sense, UFO sighting in one place, alien invasion underway when the movie starts.

Because it's a HOAX



Hell, no one has been able to prove that the 'stunt' was faked.


It was proven to be faked, all the videos are part of a large HOAX!
www.abovetopsecret.com...


I'll admit defeat when someone takes responsibility for the alleged hoax.


The hoaxers will probably never confess, come forward and take responsibility for such wrong doing unless forced to.

Unless you are one of the HOAXERS you have nothing to admit.



Until then, I'll be happy as a clam.



Be happy knowing there are plenty of legitimate videos out there.



Additionally, if this actually is a viral marketing stunt, what would be the motivation to create an obviously fake version of the video?


Remember when the film the Fourth Kind came out? Well they had several fake websites up with Dr Abigail Tylers Bio. She does not exists there is no Dr Abigail. Remember when Cloverfield came out? There were several viral marketing sites as well. This kind of thing has been done time and time again.




It makes no sense. If anything, the third, hoaxed video makes it less likely that it's a viral marketing stunt.


I have reason to believe a copycat hoaxer was inspired by the original hoaxers to make a less convincing hoax.



ENOUGH ABOUT THIS HOAX LET IT DIE!

Well there you have it, if fox news says it's a hoax, it must be so. I know I get my most credible information from fox news
This honestly explains nothing... just that somebody made an obvious jump to conclusions and pointing out the obvious that its possibly a marketing stunt and posted it as news. This debate has become tiresome.. it's like trying to prove Roswell happened when people are willing to accept the weather balloon theory. If it's a marketing attempt... I would think after spending the money on creating this that they would want credit for it then...otherwise its a nameless, time consuming, and possibly expensive hoax that the average joe will just forget about eventually.

If you watch all three videos at once it looks pretty good.I think it's real.I've seen some really good ufo sightings and this could be real.I saw a silver orb and a black triangle with other witnesses.I wish I got video of them.but I wasn't alone so that's cool.The orb was in August 2006 and the triangle was in September 2007.
