Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

The "Tasso Fragoso" alien photos


“We recently managed to shoot down an object that was landing. We were monitoring the activity of a small capsule for nine days, where it was making the exact same course, around the same time [every day]. (…) We finally neutralized the object, stopping it from flying at the night of March 15, 2007. It happened not very far from the city of Tasso Fragoso, Maranhao, [Brazil]. Near the BR330 road. Two creatures came out of the object and resisted the capture, acting violently and trying to run away. They were both shot down. (…) During the time that we were taking the beings, I was left alone with them and took some photos with my cell phone. I didn’t have much time and couldn’t take many photos because my cell phone battery was going off and the stress of photographing the creature”.


Or so the story goes, according the the “testimony of a MIB” (in Portuguese). As it turns out, it was all the invention of the talented Brazilian graphics artist Philipe Kling David in his own blog, the “Mundo Gump“. As he quickly explained:

“it is my creation, 100% of it. Both the text and the images. In fact, everything happened by accident, I was plying with zbrush and ended up creating an alien. I decided to use this alien in 3dsmax and added some lightining and textures. Then I rendered and photographed the computer screen with my cell phone. Looking at the cell phone, I was impressed as to how it looked more real. Then my mind started to invent this whole X-Files story … Tasso Fragoso was a city chosen arbitraily on google Earth”.

It’s indeed very interesting how a virtual computer creation can look more real when an analogic, real stage — photographing a computer screen with a cell phone camera — is added. This alien is so good it’s comparable to the 20/20 Alien Autopsy recreation, made by special effects artists with a very detailed dummy (and which was later mistaken for a real alien).

Luckily, David didn’t try to sell it as real, like the Haiti UFO videos, the CARET drones or the Italian Air Force saucer. All computer graphics.

    Why ppl have to fake things is beyond my understanding. There are so many truly genuine freakish things on this planet to explore, without all this deception and ego strokeing. Shame an all the fakers!

    how do i know these are real? there have been a number of movie’s made that have came out with aliens in them and in the 1990’s the movies had aliens in them that looked exactly like the photograph’s on this site so i say no they are not real where’s the proof and as the saying goes the army covered up all alien and unidentified finds so that people would forget about the crap of aliens coming to earth to probe us and experiment on us like cattle so no i don’t believe in these photo’s being real. sorry

    Many people know that the goverment has been hiding tons of information about alien ufos even they have spacecraft created by aliens.Think about this how do we have high tecnology in these days,becouse the U.S.A. has investigated all spacecraft and that how we get all the tecnology from. My point is where did you guys got this pictures from?

    Lame Fakes,

    guess why ppl always just show a close shot of a had or a limb. Would be too complicate to replicate believable environment.
    These are nothing but a bit of a playing around with CGI and or cams & colors.

    It is really too bad that people have such a low sense of self worth that they need to fake something to achieve their fifteen minutes of fame. Is there really too much creative competition out there to get some exposure for their works? Stunts like this detract from investigation of actual potentially verifiable events. I also notice that some of the other replies didn’t take time to read that the whole thing was a hoax.

    First off, I think you did a wonderful job creating the creature.
    Looks very “real”.

    But uh, Half these idiots obviously didn’t read the whole thing.
    haha. wow.

    Yes, read the entire article before replying, it was a fake, and he did not try to sell it as real. So no time wasted for ‘investigators’.

    For all we know the quote above could be just as fake. Not quite sure what this site is getting out of attempting to de-bunk thinigs like this. At the end of the day alot of these things are real. Stop fearing it and start embracing it. You will never find it if you refuse to look.
