Look at this before you share that silly ‘UFO Death Bed Confession’ video

In a viral video from this week (which has since been taken down by its original poster from YouTube), the secrets of Nevada’s infamous Area 51 were purportedly revealed by a man who was employed at the top-secret facility.

In a “death bed confession,” Boyd Bushman (a senior scientist at Lockheed Martin), wanted the world to know about all the classified data he had in his possession about aliens. In a final interview shortly before he died in August of 2014, Bushman even showed pictures of alien space craft – and yes, aliens.

We were a little more skeptical than ‘other’ certain websites (For example, why would Bushman refer to objects that he’s already identified as alien spacecraft as “UFOs”?), but the French language Canadian website TVQC pointed out that the little alien and Bushman shows in his photos is actually a “scary alien doll” that you can buy at Walmart.

According to a commenter over at i09:

OBVIOUSLY the government made those dolls AFTER they met the aliens. Make a toy from the image of an alien, thus discrediting anyone who ever posts any pictures of the real aliens. It’s so obvious.

The sad truth is that Mr. Bushman has safely solidified his legacy as a charlatan.
