November 26, 1977

On November 26, 1977, Britain’s Southern Television was hijacked for 6 minutes starting at 5:12 PM. An entity claiming to be Vrillon of the Ashtar Galactic Command gave a voice message to the people of Earth warning them of a possible, yet unnamed disaster, that they could avoid. The viewers in England were confused and called the BBC demanding what was happening. The BBC said it was obviously a hoax as they had already called Vrillon at America’s Area 51. He claimed that his space number had been cloned and that it was space telemarketers trying to sell the Earthlings an extended warranty on their planet. He said to just hang up next time they called.
