You can’t believe everything you see on the Internet. Here are 10 of my favorite videos that claim to show evidence of ghosts, UFOs, aliens, and other paranormal activity…but probably don’t.
Of course, that doesn’t mean they’re not interesting (or, you know, entertaining). Let’s get to it.
10. An Alien Body Found In Russia
This footage shows an alien body that was found at a UFO crash site in Russia. Apparently, “hundreds of villagers saw a huge object, glowing pink and blue, hurtle towards Earth before loudly impacting the ground in a wooded area.” This video later found its way onto the Internet.
9. A Winged Creature In Indonesia
An angel-like spirit blasts onto the concrete at Cilandak Town Square in South Jakarta, Indonesia on September 11, 2011. It’s only a brief stop, though, as it appears to hop away almost immediately.
8. A Shocking Humanoid Found in the Woods
A group of people are out walking in the woods when they come across a humanoid creature that seems to be eating something. It turns toward their camera, revealing bright eyes that glow in the darkness. And they run. Well, I wouldn’t blame them, I guess.
7. An Alien Gets Interrogated In Russia, 1957
I’ll let this video speak for itself:
“In 1987 A Mexican officer received the following footage from a secret military base located in the United States.
Our information revealed that Mexico abides by an Information Exchange Protocol which formally grants neighboring governments the authority to secretly solicit and exchange sensitive information regarding celestial beings, space travel, and extraterrestrial technologies.
According to our sources this video and others like it were filmed in a military base called G13. A staging facility where alien beings are tested for light sensitivity, reflexes, intelligence and brain activity. In this clip scientists conduct auditory tests on what appears to be an extraterrestrial being.”
6. A Ghost Orb on a Rooftop in Sebastian, Texas
A woman in Sebastian, Texas found this mysterious bright orb on security camera footage. Watch in terror as the ghostly figure moves around and, I don’t know, changes shape and stuff. This could be all the proof we need that spirit orbs actually exist! Or it could be a bug.
5. Another Alien Interrogated By the KGB
This is a compilation of alleged footage from various KGB records, namely an encounter with an alien and its wrecked spacecraft, as well as another arrival. ”From the first contact in 1942,” says the video, “a series of diplomatic visits to discuss matters of mutual concern were planned…these meetings would take place in secrecy…”
4. A UFO Takes A Dip In A Swimming Pool In Naples, Florida
A “saucer shaped UFO” shows up on security footage at a Florida condo. It appears to float down to the swimming pool and hover around a bit before vanishing after about 30 minutes. Despite the fact that it’s probably just some moisture on a camera lense, the footage goes viral. Now tell me that’s not weird (the “goes viral” part, not the water on the camera part).
3. One More Alien Interrogation for the Road (at Area 51)
You know, aliens. They come to Earth, who knows why, and are immediately taken hostage by our world’s governments and interrogated. They’re asked questions like “How does your ship work?” or “What’s your favorite color?” And then it’s off to the Genesis Ark Prison Ship at Area 51, where we arbitrarily lock up voyagers of space and time. Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned that. Anyway, I’ve always found this video rather creepy.
2. The Most Spine-Chilling Ghost Footage Ever Taken
Something about this particular video makes me think it’s fake, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Although I will say, given the other videos on my list, this one is the most likely to be real.
1. Babysitter Cam Catches Ghost On Film
And, finally, here it is. The single most terrifying ghost footage I’ve personally ever seen. A kid’s parents set up a camera to see if they could catch their babysitter stealing anything, and this is what they found. True terror follows. Pay attention; you might miss something.
