UFO Expert Sincerely Afraid Will Smith Has Scared Away Aliens After The Slap

Will Smith Men in Black

Will Smith may be single-handedly (no pun intended) saving the earth from an alien invasion with his much-publicized slap of comedian Chris Rock at this year’s Oscars. That’s not our opinion, mind you, but it is the observation of Nick Pope, a leading expert on UFOs, who now officially has the wildest take on the Oscar controversy. Welcome to Earth, indeed.

According to a report by John Bett of the UK’s Daily Mirror, aliens from a galaxy far, far away may be observing Earth and seeing a very violent, unwelcome attitude from our planet’s inhabitants. Pope is a Ufologist (an actual term for researchers of UFOs), and claims that aliens may be closely monitoring our TV broadcasts to get a better idea of humans. With media reports absolutely saturated with coverage of Will Smith, Chris Rock, and the slap heard ’round the world, Pope claims aliens might be getting the wrong impression of Earthlings. We think it may be a pretty accurate picture of humanity these days, but we digress.

In particular, Pope fears that aliens may see Will Smith, the celebrity who slaps other celebrities, and confuse him with Will Smith, the actor who punches an alien invader and nukes the mothership of UFOs in movies like Independence Day. They may think both Will Smiths are the same, real person and the figurehead of an anti-alien mindset on Earth. “If extraterrestrials are watching Earth – either monitoring us as part of a scientific study of emerging civilisations or maybe as reconnaissance, ahead of an alien invasion – they’ll get a lot of their information about us from our TV broadcasts,” Mr. Pope said. “What will they make of the fiasco at this year’s Oscars ceremony?”


Some ufologists have theorized that alien civilizations are watching our transmissions, including TV broadcasts. They may not comprehend the concept of acting and make-believe, and assume Smith’s films like Independence Day and Men In Black are documentaries. That hesitation may cause the little green men to turn their UFOs around and go right back to where they came from, at least until cooler heads prevail. If aliens contemplating coming to Earth have hostile intentions, it could mean their attack could be postponed. Former President Barack Obama has basically confirmed that UFOs are real, as have numerous government reports, so it is likely they have seen Smith get slap-happy with Chris Rock and creatures that may look like them.

Nick Pope’s opinion may sound ridiculous, but he has some serious scientific credentials outside of his hunt for UFOs. He worked for the British Government’s Ministry of Defence from 1985 to 2006, where he investigated UFO phenomena, like a real-life Fox Mulder. He left after the British government shut down their UFO investigations. He currently lives in the United States, where he is a media commentator and freelance journalist. He has appeared in dozens of TV documentary series (according to his IMDb profile), including Ancient Aliens for The History Channel, UFOs Declassified, and UFOs: The Lost Evidence. He’s also appeared in feature documentaries including Aliens vs. Bigfoot, which we swear is an actual documentary title.

Ironically, Pope’s observations come on the eve of First Contact Day on April 5, a fictional holiday celebrated by Star Trek fans. It marks the day in Star Trek canon that the Vulcans visited Earth, and Earthlings discovered that there was other life in the universe. It appears now, if Nick Pope is correct, that there will be no UFOs visiting Earth on First Contact Day or anytime soon, thanks to Chris Rock, Will Smith, and the Oscars controversy.
