Beam me up, sporty! UFO spotted among fireworks at Olympics opening ceremony
ukdailymail ^ | UPDATED: 11:05 EST, 30 July 2012 | Nick Enoch

As fireworks lit up the heavens above the Olympics opening ceremony, watched by around a billion people, something else was seen among the whizz-bangs in the night sky... a UFO. It may have ticked all the cliche boxes - saucer-shaped, bulge in the middle, metallic - but no one has yet stepped forward to explain the slow-moving object.

The incident came right at the close of last Friday's spectacular at the Olympic Park stadium in Stratford, east London at around 12.30am. And it was just as Nick Pope, one of the UK’s top UFO experts, predicted only weeks ago - that mass summer events would be a prime time for crafts from other worlds to present themselves to mankind.

“predicted”

Or yet another UFO hoax. Like a Doug and Dave crop circle.

Blimey, Ben. That was just a USA drone looking for dangerous terrorists.

Crikey!

A camera saucer from the Earth Sports Programming Network, showing odd competitions from the backwater of the galaxy. The natives are so primitive that they don't even use their extra tentacle for defense in water polo.

The aliens have already stolen the gold from the inside of the medals and replaced it with silver.

Giorgio Tsoukalos, the “Ancient Aliens” guy. With the hair.

About

Ancient Aliens is a series of image macros based on History Channel’s TV series with the same name starring alien expert Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, who often tends to explain inexplicable phenomena as the direct result of aliens or extraterrestrials being on Earth. In a somewhat similar fashion to Bill O’Reilly’s You Can’t Explain That series, the Ancient Aliens macros exaggerate Tsoukalos’ beliefs to such an extent that they become humourous.

Origin

The still shot of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos originated from the History Channel series Ancient Aliens[1], a documentary series that explores the possibility that aliens may have visited in the past. The program is directed and produced by Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and first aired on April 20th, 2010.

Spread

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos’s unworldly appearance and predictable resort to aliens in explaining various mysteries of human civilization caught many people’s attention in the audience. As early as in November 2010, his “alien” repertoire became a popular subject of lulzy mockeries when it reached 4chan’s /b/ (random) board[3], spawning a steady stream of images centered around an exploitable screenshot of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos from the TV series.

NBC was probably taking a commercial break and we missed it here, across the pond.

Obviously, it was a weather balloon reflecting light from the planet Venus off of a cloud of swamp gas.

Because I’m not the only person in the universe who likes Daniel Craig!

Thanks. I’ve never seen the show. Is it ironic that the original air date is 4/20? 4/20 being the international day of massive weed smoking. He looks like he may partake in the enjoyment of bong hits.

I like him as Bond and in Layer Cake. I think you might like him in a different way than me though.

As you can see, they have the place surrounded. They’re just waiting for the right moment to turn on their heat rays.
