A better video, with translation: https://youtu.be/yA_M9LG17KQ
Way better quality, thank you
Long story short, for those who doesn’t speak Spanish, the people on the video say that at first they thought that it was Christmas decoration, but then realize it couldn’t be possible because that thing was coming and going like it was thinking, and after 4 minutes, they saw that the think camouflage itself (like in the predator movie) and transform into a humanoide form but still “invisible”
He also thought it was witchcraft.
(I speak Spanish)
looks real fuckin alien to me
Ah, yes that's just Dr Manhattan. He's still assembling himself.
I think the quality of the video is hiding much of the details that would explain what it is, really can’t make out anything.
Queue weird blue filter.
Queue scary music.
You know some shit is scary and strange when Samara from The Ring runs off scared af.
When I was about 11 I went outside on Christmas night and was just getting fresh air. I thought my mind was playing tricks or idk if I made up what I saw, but for a split second I thought I saw what was something that looked like a human wrapped in lights but invisible riding something like a bicycle. Seeing shit like this makes me believe what I saw was real and not just something I saw from being a tired kid staying up late on Christmas night.
It’s just those two guys on the lit up tandem bike from men in black.
Literally came here to say the exact same thing
A while ago someone posted this video and a few other showing the same thing if someone can dig it up it would be cool has a lot of detail about these things
Yeah there was a thread of these that were hard to explain, one of them showed 2 people walking near it and then away from it like “wtf is that”.
Here is a video of what looks like a tiny robot floating eerily near a gas station in Peru. Could this be related to your video? They move in a similar fashion:
[Strange being at petrol station in Peru](https://youtu.be/03prEwRxq7w)
This does look like a deflated helium balloon.
Whatever it is, it's been seen in other places too
I know it's cliche, but it looks like a silver helium balloon that's just full enough to be buoyant being pushed by the wind.
Edit: My money is on it's something like [this](https://youtu.be/n0mky0W2Jis) combined with [this.](https://youtu.be/fu_gHoAiuuQ)
If you read, they believe that too at first, but I really thing they know a little more about what they saw than any people here, including me
Looks like a dude riding a bike with balloons. Or it could be "IT" going for Mexican kids to spice up its diet.
I don’t see the “dude” at all
Led suit + skates
I didn't know they still made Potato Cams in 2018.
Are there many high quality examples of someone using a cellphone to film a monitor displaying a CCTV feed?
My question is: Why they don't recorded it with any of their smartphones? Why the only evidence is a really low quality security cam video? ... The first thing you do when you see something abnormal is to record it! They didn't.
LMAO yeah, when you see something beyond your comprehension, the first thing you do is take a video so you can get internet points on Reddit. Btw someone linked a video with the original resolution
To me it looks like balloons, i even think i can see the strings attached. I've seen huge bundles of helium balloons behave in this way around a hall we rented for a birthday.
As to why those people look afraid, it's dark, everything we can't see in the dark could be a threat so it's a natural response. Just my $0.02
My dad used to sell security cams back in the 80s and 90s and every single one of them had better quality than this shit. There’s nothing to this video other than some amateur frauding.
[Here's a video](https://youtu.be/318dBBN3Sq0) about an investigation conducted by Tercer Milenio (basically the most important TV program about UFOs in Mexico). It has no english subtitles though, sorry about that. I'm very skeptical about these kind of topics but I share it for anyone who is interested. In my opinion, it's just a balloon.
It looks like slash in the November Rain music video.
I saw this too, before I read your comment. The camera resolution cant buffer him correctly, perhaps due to reflective clothing.
It's a balloon. A balloon filed with swamp gas.
*It's a balloon. A balloon filed with swamp gas.*
…the trapped swamp gas inside creates a ball lightning phenomenon.
Get to the choppa?
We’ve discussed these before and someone said that the “objects” are always very light looking materials, foil, or light cloth, and could be suspended using very thin fishing line from a drone. If it was long enough the drone could be very high and people wouldn’t be thinking about the low amount of sound from the drone. The other silent option would be rigging from the top of a building.
Each setup looks like it’s right out of Candid Camera where the people who have setup the hoax seem intent on scaring people, and that just screams setup to me.
That's a typical reflective balloon used for fiestas in Mexico.
Not saying it's fake but at first it kind of looks like a bunch of balloons floating in midair.
Umm I’m fluent in Spanish. Not dismissing what they’re saying as lies because there are a lot of paranormal activities in México but this looks like a bunch of tangled up balloons. Just my opinion.
I was thinking something similar. It seems like there are a lot of weird unexplained phenomena in Mexico. I don't know from experience, I've only heard stories.
I'm going with a bunch of partially deflated helium balloons tied together. I've seen old helium balloons that only hover off of the ground plenty of times, and have even seen a bunch of them just like this doing exactly the same thing.
I don't know why, but after the first 3 or 4 Seconds i thought it could be a guy with a shoppingcart and because the cart itself is made from metall it sparkles somehow. There is also a kind of Spray you can buy to hide your Licence plate on your car , so the Radar photo is over saturated. As i mentioned before, it could be a guy with a prayed shopping cart to produce this wild effects on the camera. But this are only my personal 2 cents, not more and not less 😇
That looks like three or four mettalic balloons that are at neutral buoyancy, floating down the street.
Seems to float on the wind.
I hate to say semi-deflated Mylar balloons, but without better images, that’s all it looks like to me. Like they’d lost buoyancy, floated down until their strings and/or whatever was weighing them down touched the ground, then continued down the street, dragging the weight with it. It becoming “invisible” like the Predator to the bystanders could just mean it drifted into a shadowed area, dark reflections in dark surroundings blending better than bright lights off an object in the middle of the street.
Balloons are shiny!
There’s another video of this that looks very similar if not the same to this and I wonder if anyone has the relevant link? Thank you!
i watched this, and then it hit me, this could be described as flickering lights, or fireflies...
well, i remember one documentary (it was a series), in which there was this MUFON case (Canada), in which a lady saw an ufo, and it saw some flickering lights coming down from the ufo and into her back yard. It hovered around a tree, and disappeared, this happening for a couple of times in a longer span of time (days-weeks)
in the documentary there was also another guy from florida who experienced the same thing.
this in the video could be what they saw ...
later edit: i think it was Alien Mysteries
I thought it was just a ghost floating around chilling in a recliner chair... not strange at all.
Casting a round shadow
Wouldn't a too good to be true video be clear with less blur? You can barely make out a thing.
Anyway, I immediately saw a guy on a unicycle with lights or balloon or something.
Well the only think i can see here is a Voltiac Phantom from Prey
Thank you I’ve been looking for this vid again all over
A guy wrapped in a space blanket riding on a hover board?
Prolly just a crackhead that got into the wrong stuff
Grandma in a motor wheelchair wearing invisibility cloak
looks like active camouflage
*”If it bleeds, we can kill it.”*
Evidence videos are either too low quality to be truth or too high quality to be truth, huh
Looks like a fractal.
Someone on a unicycle wearing tinfoil?
Why can’t it be something as simple as a piece of reflective material being floated by a breeze?
Looks like predator
Chrome balloons stuck to a drone.
How about someone recreate this effect with some slightly deflated Mylar balloons filled with helium. I’d like to see it. Thanks
