Alien caught on tape in Canada? - I have my doubts

A new interesting video has turned up on Youtube. This time it's a footage of an alien allegedly shot in Alberta, Canada in June of this year.

The original description from "MrBeeHat" is as following:
"This footage was taken at around eleven or twelve at night in rural Alberta on June 7th 2010. A few days prior to this, me and my brother had been hearing noises from the yard at night and thought we had seen something out the window, so we decided to keep a camera handy in case it happened again. As you can see, the footage we captured shows a tall creature with a strange manner of walking. It had quite large hands with three fingers each and appeared to almost go completely invisible at times. One of the strangest features of this being was it's almost metallic looking skin. Feel free to comment on this footage."

This isn't the first time a video of an alien shows up on the web. In the summer of 2008 this video showed up on Youtube:

The video was promoted by Jeff Peckman, but was said to have been shot by Stan Romanek in North Dakota. Back to the new video.

I have some minor knowledge 3D-rendering, and there are two things interesting to me: when the "alien" runs it looks strange, and the collision with the chair doesn't look natural either. It looks like when an object is knocked on a video game and it just falls down.

I doubt that this video shows an actual alien, it is more likely just a computer rendering of some sort.

Here's the video anyway:


  1. While i do believe in other intelligent life (it's a mathematical certainty that there is other intelligent life out there), I am skeptical about this video. A hobby of mine is magic and illusions. Some illusions deal with reflections in clear glass. What if the chair was actually BEHIND the camera, and the "alien". The chair also "disappears" before the "alien" ever touches it. This is due to the angle of reflection from the light. Play around with a flashlight in your window at night.IMHO . . . . . HOAX

  2. Eh...I'm inclined to think it's a hoax. You learn some very simple tricks in film school, and what -=[OPIAT3D]=- mentioned above is one of them. The alien disappearing at times is a sure sign of it, especially since it only seems to disappear when the light and camera are at a specific angle.

  3. looks like a skinny dude in a foil suit,, not buying it..
