Ghostbuster, Blues Brother, UFOlogy advocate: Dan Aykroyd.
The comedic titan has remolded himself in recent years as not only a hawker of Crystal Head vodka but a celebrity endorser of UFO research. What follows is a brief tour trough Aykroyd’s opinions on the matter including his eight-part Unplugged documentary opus.
Above we see the most recent interview with DA at a Crystal Head signing. A self-confessed spiritualist, Aykroyd’s most refined passions in the research community surrounding unexplained flying objects. In the interview (in which Aykroyd rattles off a who’s who of UFOlogists and gives props to up and coming research teams) he mentions his 2005 UFO doc Unplugged which cemented the actor’s place in the UFO community.
We see that AFTER THE JUMP…
Produced and directed by UFOlogist David Sereda, this 81-minute compilation of interviews and archival footage has become a modern must see of those fascinated by the study of possible alien sightings. The doc not only reviews various video evidence but also pulls clips from the likes of Ronald Reagan who confessed to seeing a UFO while he was governor of California.
You can see the rest of the doc for free here on YouTube.
But you don’t put Aykroyd’s face on the box of the DVD unless you want it to get a little publicity, which is exactly what happened when the DVD hit shelves. Among the press done to promote the release was a stop on Anderson Cooper’s program.
And so, we prove the cliche true. Old comedians don’t die, they become passionate, knowledgable advocates of alien visitation.
