Anonymous UFO Prank Fizzles

Posted by on May 23rd, 2011

The rapscallions who make up the band of mischief makers known as Anonymous had a new target this weekend, UFO believers. Unfortunately for them, the more cyber-savvy of the sky watchers were ready for the hoax.

“A triangle of about 8 yellow lights in the sky” is the key phrase Anonymous told those who wanted to participate to use on various UFO report blogs and forums yesterday. Their hope was to spark an international panic that hundreds, if not thousands, of alien ships of a similar design are moving into position around the globe.

But if various UFO forum threads are any indication, the hoax got little to no traction. A Google news alert for the key phrase only brings up one blog post discussing the plan before it went into motion.

    Sonofa-! On the very same night that I really did see a triangle of about 8 yellow lights in the sky! I got video footage that includes the lights, a hatchway opening up on the bottom of the ship and an alien peaking out and shouting at me that the moon landing was fake. He then threw his whiskey bottle at me and flew away.
    But because of this fizzled hoax no one will believe me. I’ll just go delete my video footage.

    Oh, the irony!

    I’ve got news for them: The ARE the idiots of the world. Their next ingenious plan is to order a bunch of pizzas and have them delivered to their neighbor’s house! Then, I hear they’re planning on ringing people’s doorbells and running away before the person gets to the door. …Seriously, is Anonymous made up of a bunch of 10 year-olds? This was the lamest “prank” I think I’ve ever heard of.
