I was going to do a post about radio transmissions from space. Or radio transmission from Russia that hasn't stopped in, like, decades, but those will have to wait for another Wednesday.
Since tomorrow is the World Horror Convention in New Orleans I'm going to pick something that's a little zazzier. And has a video!!
Okay, I'm coming right out and saying that this video is much more suspect than the things I usually post, but it's a fun video and I like it so you're getting it anyway.
This is security footage from Cilandak Square, in Jakarta, Indonesia.
All right, so you can see how this could easily be CGI. Still, I love watching this video over and over again. The things that I like about it (whether it's fake or not) are the people's reactions. If this were just security footage of the supposed angel, it would be cool but no biggie. But when the people show up like you better believe they just saw something, it makes me sit up and take notice.
I also like how the light from the angel reflects off the structure across the lot from it. If it is CGI (ahem) that's some damn fine attention to detail.
So there you have it. The Jakarta Angel. Thoughts? Do you think the video is as fun to watch as I do?
