November 26, 1977: Ashtar Galactic Command Hijacks ITV Signal

0

Today in 1977, an unidentified person hacked into a local English television broadcast. He identified himself as Vrillon, a representative of an “intergalactic association” called Ashtar Galactic Command. He claimed to be warning Earth of an impending intergalactic judgement, urging “All your weapons of evil must be removed” and “You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill.” The broadcast interrupted six minutes of airtime, taking over the audio only of a news broadcast featuring Andrew Gardner. The hoaxer remains unidentified today. The incident made a small splash in the conspiracy theorist realm as well, with UFO enthusiasts citing the inability to identify the hoaxer as proof that the transmission actually came from space.
