A viral video doing the rounds on YouTube claims to have captured footage of an "alien shape-shifter" among President Obama's security team at a March 4 public function.
The narrator points out that the picture is distant and distorted by pixilation and data-compression effects - but then ignores his own advice and concocts a comprehensive conspiracy theory around it.
The obvious security guard - tall, bald and alert - scans the crowd for any visible threat.
Standing in a bright spotlight in a darkened room, his pixelated face looks remarkably featureless and malformed.
A correspondent for Wired magazine decided to take the issue direct to the White House.
"I can't confirm the claims made in this video, but any alleged program to guard the president with aliens or robots would likely have to be scaled back or eliminated in the sequester," Caitlin Hayden quipped.
"I'd refer you to the Secret Service or Area 51 for more details."
There you have it.
No direct denial that alien shape-shifting humanoids are part of the Presidential team...
