Even though the U.S. government recently denied aliens existence, you must admit that this looks pretty legit as far as creatures not of this Earth go.
But alas, like almost all alien encounters this one probably has an equally anticlimactic explanation. Gizmodo speculates the frowny face and stringy arm are merely rotted vegetables -- so rotted I'm not sure I can even speculate what they were (eggplant?).
The Daily Mail reports that the "alien" was found in Russia -- where all alien crashes and sightings seem to happen -- by Marta Yegorovnam, who proceeded to store the "alien" in her fridge for two years after finding it at an alleged UFO crash sight near her house. The Daily Mail has more:
She says she approached the flaming wreckage and crumpled metal which she described as 'unbearably hot' and near the twisted hulk lay the dead alien.
Naturally, Miss Yegorovnam did what most would in the same situation and stored the alien in her fridge for two years, according to Unexplained Mysteries.
The website reported that two men turned up at her home a few days ago and confiscated the corpse for investigative purposes, claiming to be from the Karelian Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The footage was unearthed by noted paranormal writer and expert Michael Cohen.
Mr Cohen, 40, said: 'This could be an elaborate hoax, however the possibility that this might be a genuine alien should not be discounted.
"Russia is a hotbed of UFO activity and possible alien craft has been tracked by both military and civilian agencies.
"In all likelihood most alien beings would look strange to us, much like this specimen."
Previous Russian alien sightings this year include the following photos. The alien body (below) was later confirmed a hoax.
