Strange UFO Shockingly Turns Out to Be…A Mr. Peanut Balloon

Speaking of UFO coverage in the media, here’s a quick sample from last month: It’s a news report out of Mississauga, Canada about an unusual object levitating in the sky. Was it an alien? An experimental government craft? No, no, Nanette.

It was a floating Mr. Peanut.

CityNews Toronto shared the story. The initially unidentified object was filmed on August 21, hovering above the power lines over Mississauga. The footage then wound up on YouTube, where it was met with an untold number of possible explanations.

One commenter suggested it was another “jet pack man.” Another said they had “seen lots of strange dark spirits” in the skies over Mississauga the last several years. Some believed the video was, in fact, a fake. (Check out the video and its comments here).

However, a few locals were quick to chime in. This was no extraterrestrial machination, they said.

No, this was a “dapper” Mr. Peanut balloon.

“Some UFOs are more interesting than others, Erica,” commented reporter Richard Southern.
