The still frame above is from a very popular UFO video, it shows some people driving down a busy highway and stopping and filming what appears to be a UFO emerging from behind the clouds. The UFO also shoots out some blue lightening bolts. The video has been pretty viral on facebook and youtube. Normally the shared video comes with a warning that the video is being deleted from the Internet and that you need to share it. The question becomes is it real or fake? I have the answer but before we get into all that lets watch the video.
The video is very compelling to many people and many others are just unsure if the video is of a real UFO. Some just wonder if it's real or fake...well wondered no longer.
The above video was a viral marketing campaign created by a Brazilian advertising company. The company's name is Attitude Comunicacao, which is a company associated with Atitudemediabox. The campaign was started way back in 2011 and believe it or not it was for a pizza box advertising company, that company is Pizzboxx. Pizzboxx makes custom advertisements for pizza boxes.
Here is an example of one of their many pizza boxes.

Atitudemediabox also issues a statement about the video on their web page, found HERE.
Here is a translation of their statement:
"To disclose the approval between the AtitudeMediaBox and the PizzBoxx group wanted something unusual.
Our campaign is only at the beginning and already have many media by Brazil. "Ufo Rondon" was a story built not only by us, but by the whole population. Congratulations to all and thank you so much creativity.
Subscribe to our channel on YouTube (agatitudecomunicacao), follow us on Twitter (@atitudemediabox) and wait for the end of the viral film that almost became an epidemic."
Now, if that is still not enough to convince you, there was also a follow up video and here it is....
In the end, I would have to say it was a very good marketing campaign and very effective. The original video is still making the rounds on facebook and many are convinced it's the real deal.
All this talk about pizza is making me hungry, I wonder what is on our pizza boxes?
Have a great day and keep watching the skies...and your pizza boxes.
