A UFO hoax video has gone viral online after the truth about the video came out from the creator. The clip was put together by Aristomenis Tsirbas, a visual effects specialist, though early on after the video was first released it apparently had some fooled. Though the video has some over-the-top components, it seems some people were eager to go along with the concept until they learned otherwise. The Inquisitr shared the details of the UFO video hoax on Feb. 10.
The UFO hoax video was originally posted on YouTube last fall, with a note that attempted to lead people to believe it was legitimate. While the creator didn't let anyone in on the hoax for the first few months, last week he opened up about the video and its creation, and now it's gone viral online as people check it out for themselves. Creator Aristomenis Tsirbas has worked on movies such as “Hellboy” and “Titanic,” and he also did some work on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”
Tsirbas shared that he and his team worked on the UFO hoax video for four months, and the goal was to showcase for people just how realistic computer-generated images could look. They knew the mothership at the end was over-the-top, as it was designed to be, and if it weren't for that chances are far more people would have believed the UFO video was real, or at least pondered the possibility. The video has over 230,000 views on YouTube, and many of the most recent commenters are sharing how impressed they are with the computer-generated images incorporated.
Had you already seen the UFO hoax video? Would you have found any of it to be believable had you not known it was computer-generated?
