UFO Phil, a self-appointed intergalactic frontrunner for president, announced today he has been granted authority to assume the job without waiting for the November election.
"I'm going to become your new president. ... Don't worry, [Barak] Obama, Mitt Romney and whoever else can still have their little election. That's not going to affect me," said UFO Phil, whose real name is Phil Hill.
A published composer, comedy songwriter, documentary filmmaker and self-proclaimed "man of science," Hill has even appeared on the small screen alongside actor and comedian Tom Green. His single "Listening to Coast to Coast" serves as a theme song for "Coast to Coast AM" on the Premiere Radio Network.
In interviews with Peter King of CBS, The Huffington Post and other media outlets, Hill revealed he is in possession of secret scrolls that are written by beings from another planet. Those documents, Hill claims, give him the authority to assume presidential leadership without a democratic election.
Once he assumed presidency, Hill said he would establish a "Senate for Terrestrial Alien Relations," to welcome the arrival of "brothers from space." Hill also said he will decommission all military ships at sea, in favor of a new fleet of flying discs with spaceports in major cities around the globe.
In addition, Phil wants to build a giant stone pyramid behind the Hollywood sign. The pyramid would be similar to the ones he wants to build on top of Pikes Peak in Colorado and on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay.
The pyramids, however, won't be the only change coming, Hill said.
"The Statue of Liberty has to come down," Hill told HuffPost. In its place, Hill said he will erect a much taller "Monument of Zaxon." Zaxon, according to Hill, is the leader of the good aliens. "He has very nice skin and will look phenomenal as a statue," Hill said.
If UFO Phil's campaign promises sound a bit over-ambitious, it's because he plans to become president of earth, not just the United States.
Hill also plans to hold a live concert for extraterrestrials on June 10, 2012, to correspond with the arrival of aliens on Earth, an event foretold centuries ago by the Mayans, he said. The show will take place in California at the site of the legendary 1967 Monterrey Pop Festival.
"When I'm president we'll finally have full disclosure," Hill promised. "I'm going to release all the top secret government UFO files to the public on DVD and Blu-ray, with special features."
