Students Timur Hilall, 18, and Kirill Vlasov, 19, have admitted their 'find' of an alien in the Siberian woods was just a stunt

Seriously?  They made this thing out of chicken skin and breadcrumbs???  Someone, please… get these kids a job at Industrial Light and Magic, already!

 

We said it was too good to be true and, sadly, it was.

The students behind the discovery of an alien’s body at a UFO ‘crash site’ have admitted that it was a ‘crummy’ hoax made out of stale bread.

Friends Timur Hilall, 18, and Kirill Vlasov, 19, shot the video that showed the alien’s mangled remains frozen in snow in Irkutsk, Siberia.

The pair were questioned by police over their ‘extraterrestrial discovery’ but admitted to their stunt.

But not before their creation became an internet sensation, drawing almost 700,000 hits on YouTube.

Their find was deemed serious enough for the Kremlin to get involved and a spokesman from the Russian interior ministry confirmed the hoax.

‘We found the alien in one of the student’s homes,’ he said.

‘It was lying under his bed and an examination of it revealed it had been made of bread crumbs which were covered in chicken skin.’

Prosecutors are now considering whether or not the pair have committed any crimes.

Dead Body of Alien Found in Russia

Sergei Zvedzin, a police spokesman, said: ‘What are we going to do with them? We have not yet decided.

‘We will be looking to see if a crime has been committed in connection with the use of animal skin. If they have committed an offence they will have to pay for it.’

Their bogus claims appeared after locals reported seeing an alien spaceship crash in the area last month.

Local UFO expert, Alex Komanov, from the Russion UFO Research Centre, dismissed the find saying: ‘The body is interesting. The texture is similar to a real biological entity.

‘However, the creature has no clothes and I am sure that intelligent beings would be dressed in something like a space suit or coveralls.’

However, conspiracy theorists have already started accusing the government of a cover up. One said: ‘We know what we saw. Powerful people in the military just don’t want us to see this.’

    Hahaha… the police are LOOKING for things to charge them for? Lame.

    Moscow was the only place I’ve visited where I was genuinely concerned that something could happen that would make be disappear. The police there were pretty scary.

    I thought that the skin had a real quality to it. I don’t understand why government people get upset enough about these things to want to bust heads. You’d think they’d be saying “See! We told you! It’s all a joke.”

    Lesson: Don’t keep the body under your bed. Destroy it utterly and shoot another video showing that you went back with a box to recover it and it was gone.

    @Steve: When are we going to do our group trip to Aurora, TX?
