Brazil ET Video Claims To Be The Real Deal (Don't Bet Your Spaceship On It)
An extraterrestrial is seen in a Brazilian rainforest and arches its back conveniently right in front of a group of children being filmed.
Well, we've seen stranger things, but this is just the latest in a series of videos all coincidentally presented on the Internet by Mike Cohen of All News Web, which bills itself as "the world's only inter-galactic daily news service."
So, why would anybody doubt this video, reportedly taken by a couple of unnamed British tourists in the Amazon jungle?
"It's an example of a found artifact, where you look at a video and see something that's not necessarily there, like seeing animals in the clouds," suggested Marc Dantonio, chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network, the largest privately funded UFO research organization in the world.
"I think what we're seeing is that same kind of thing, because the alien head appears to be distinctly separate and possibly at a different focal plane than the body -- the body appears closer than the head," Dantonio told The Huffington Post from his Connecticut-based company, FX Models, where he creates special effects and models and has defense contracts with the Navy, Congress and the U.S. Joint Chiefs in Washington, D.C.
As an odd hovering blue light appears at the right side of the video, what looks like an alien being can be seen on the left, which arches its back before the video ends, reported The Sun.
Dantonio noticed an inconsistency about the alleged alien head.
"When the wind blows, the head bobs and that indicates something passive. In other words, from the way it bobs, the connection point looks like it could be coincident with the top of the 'body location.' But something's not quite right in the way the head bobs."
And yet, Cohen -- who somehow obtained the video -- says it will be included in some future Hollywood presentation.
"This is highly compelling footage that will be hard to discredit," he said. "It is rather apparent that aliens are interested in this region due to its biological diversity."
And what about that blue-colored light in the forest to the right of the back-arching ET?
"That could be where some sunlight is penetrating through the leaves and hitting a tree trunk and the CCD (charge-coupled device) of the camera is shifting it to blue," Dantonio explained.
Presenting amazing-looking out-of-this world UFO videos is nothing new for Cohen. Here's one of a pyramid in the sky supposedly filmed over a power station in China:
"That's CG, a computer-generated pyramid," said Dantonio. "It's too sharp and clear and pristine, relative to the rest of the video."
Dantonio suggests that the videos presented by Cohen are a bit too good to be true.
"Well, he looks for the low-hanging fruit -- the easiest ones to ascribe to being UFOs -- the ones you can reach easily without a whole lot of interpretation, ones you can just grab and say, 'Hey, UFO, post it!' You can just let it speak for itself, but usually those are the fake ones.
"I guess if you don't have science encumbering you, then everything is a UFO -- if you want it to be."

UFO Over Holloman Base
An unidentified flying object was photographed by a government employee over the Holloman Air Development Center in New Mexico in 1964. Conspiracy theorists have claimed the photo is proof that the U.S. government has been in contact with aliens.

America's most infamous UFO case centers in Roswell, N.M. Some people claimed an alien spacecraft crashed there in 1947; the military said it was a weather balloon.
The Air Force issued "The Roswell Report" in 1997. Countering claims that aliens were recovered at the New Mexico site, the report said military officials picked up 200-pound dummies, above, that were used in an experiment.
Alien in Brazil
Video grab close up. What looks like an alien creature with visible head, neck, arms and body standing in the Brazilian rainforest in Manaus, Brazil. In this Amaz-alien footage, a lone unidentified being appears to stand in the jungle of Brazil -- even arching its back -- just feet away from a bright flashing blue light. In what some allege as proof that Earth is being visited by aliens from another planet, the video was obtained by paranormal writer Mike Cohen who says the video was taken by two British tourists visiting the Manaus region of the Amazon jungle.
Crop Circle in Yogyakarta, Indonesia
A large circle and geometric pattern local residents say were created by a UFO appeared in a rice field in Krasakan hamlet in Sleman, Yogyakarta, on the morning of Jan. 23, 2011.
