- We noted this and isolated it earlier and thank Ted also
raising the issue. If someone went to all the trouble to create this
hoax, why would they be so sloppy as to leave a logo showing...when one
digital snip would remove it? -ed
- At 2:24 into the video Jeff- look at the upper left corner
of your screen you'll see what appears to be part of a company logo on
a stage wall, just above the set! It's in large, crisp white letters on
a black background. I had to look at it three times to believe it. The
first time I saw it, it just caught my eye briefly.
- It also appears you can see the top of the set this was
filmed on. The other question is - why is the quality so bad? God - this
is worse than cell phone video! My mother has 52 year old Kodacolor 8mm
movies of me - and they still look really, really good.
- I tried to post my remarks on the youtube website
- but found out that although it SAID it posted it, it never appeared.
And what's strange is that there are no other comments there either...
- What will be interesting is to see if anyone else notices
this too... Perhaps you could post the video as a kind of test?
- Below is a video capture of the frame. Perhaps this is
a video of a video monitor, and this is the logo on the frame around the
- Logo Identified?
- From Ted Twietmeyer
- Jeff - This email just came in from a reader about
the logo. If true, it might shed some light on the video's origins. I've
been thinking about that scene and the top of the image. It's curved, just
like a CRT. Even the top of the walls are curved, too.
- Dear Ted
- Concerning your article: http://www.rense.com/general75/logo.htm
- I recognize this Logo. It is from a Greek
television station called
- ERT1 or ET1 (Greek Television 1). Maybe this
film was taked from this station.

- From Ted Twietmeyer
- There is a longer version of the video on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NH7XPMWc8ig
- In looking at it closely, there are two big errors in
it which proves this a hoax, or a re-enactment. This one too, is always
out of focus like the first one. Perhaps that's to prevent anyone from
seeing mistakes in the details. Here is a short analysis of the video.
- 1. At 5:19 into this video, an "astronaut"
is shown from the back. His "life support pack" is a long, sharp
cornered box-like object without any fittings, tubing, pipes or controls.
Real environmental Apollo backpacks were relatively short compared to
this, wider, covered in wrinkly white insulating blanket and quite complex.
Real environmental back packs didn't extend almost down to their knees
as this one does.
- 2. Astronaut appears to be pawing away at the ground
with some type of sample tool. If he was a REAL astronaut, he would know
the tool is to pick up SAMPLES and not use it like a rake. When you are
as far from the Lander as they depict (apparently several hundred feet)
and on limited oxygen you don't waste time pawing at the ground.
- 3. At 4:40, a Lunar Lander is visible through a framed
window ! Most of the video is one long cut, but there is an abrupt scene
change near the end at 4:40. The Lunar Lander looks like a scale model
on a stage.
- 4. At the very end, we see some men at control panels
very briefly. This is known in theater as "the selling" which
makes it convincing. In drama or film, when someone is punching someone
else they never, ever make contact. But it is up to the person being "struck"
to sell the idea they were hit by their reaction. The "sell"
used in this video is a bit more cleverly concealed, using the fake lander
and about 2 quick seconds of footage in a control room.
- Is this supposed to be a re-enactment of something that
actually happened? or is it just a hoax? The very strange thing about
the original video I posted is that numerous readers wrote me who could
not post comments to it as I could not. Could this video be a covert a
psyc. test of the populace to see how they react to proof of alien life?
Even though comments didn't post - it certainly doesn't guarantee no one
has ever received or read them.
- If you were doing psyc. research, you would want all
new video viewers to see the video first WITHOUT being able to see anyone
else's comments. And this is exactly what happens. But at the new youtube
posting given above, people are able to make comments and all have called
it hoax. Some viewers comments show that they may know where the footage
was taken as well. Numerous rense readers have already written me, telling
me that ET1 is a Greek television station. Ted Twietmeyer??
