/Pol/ Being /Pol/?:
Let’s Round Up The Usual Suspects!
The “Joshua Tree” Suspect:
The “Corrupted Picture” Suspect:
Yeah…clearly a fake.
The “Mars Landscape” Suspect:
Also a fake, from Jan 2016.
The “Thumbnail” Suspect:
The background image is from 2014, so clearly a fake.
The X-Files Suspect:
Congratulations on this iteration – it managed to reach Finnish 4Chan (a country we all know doesn’t exist):
However, aside from the obvious depth perception problems, it’s just “Sandy” from X-Files.
Yet another Fake.
And despite this, they’re looking for a tree?…
So you’re looking for “one tree to the right side of the alien”?
It does fit in with what other Anons are saying about the original image:
You mean this tree?:
So dark and gloomy…looks like an English Countryside…from 2010…
The “Completely out of focus” Suspect:
There are no other known pictures like it on the internet, background or otherwise…
Hmm…get on this, Internet!
The “Hyper-Realistic” Suspect:
Now someone is uploading, piece by piece, another alien pic, claiming it to be the original.
The only problem?
“Animation”, sounds about right.
But we can go deeper.
The Picture was later uploaded to 4Chan / /r/Conspiracy as such:
That’s interesting…why was it uploaded flipped in reverse? To conceal it’s a fake?
If you flip it around…you realize it’s from the Desert Botanical Gardens (Phoenix, AZ) WIKIMEDIA PAGE?!
Totally fucking fake.
One thing’s for sure. With everyone claiming that they’re suffering side-effects from their version is the original picture, well, this is Mass Psychogenic Illness.
“a phenomenon that transmits collective illusions of threats, whether real or imaginary, through a population in society as a result of rumors and fear (memory acknowledgment)”
And I mean this in the nicest possible way, because it’s a fascinating case study.
So, who wants to update the Wikipedia page?
