A Vegas "Prophet's" PR Play
File under: Wackadoo Gurus
A person who calls himself Prophet Yahweh has just announced that he "will demonstrate his ability to call down UFOs and spaceships, on-demand, for [the news media] to film and photograph" over Las Vegas, beginning June 1, 2005.
Previews of this momentous occasion will be available for viewing on Prophet Yahweh's website for only $7.95 per month. Just think, all the UFO porn you know you want for just pennies a day!
This reminds us of the time Ben Creme spent all his hard-conned cash to take out full page advertisements in major metropolitan newspapers announcing the immanent arrival of the Maitreya, set to appear on every TV screen on planet Earth, all at the same time. But we suspect Maitreya got stage fright in the green room, puked his guts out and cancelled. The poor thing's been hiding out ever since, waiting for his PR profile to recover from the blow.
We have a feeling that the Prophet Yahweh won't get sick, but we imagine he already has a number of good excuses prepared for the press when his UFOs don't show. And show or no show, he has already won by driving traffic to his site. [Ed Note: Including from this one!] Like spamming with phony offers for drugs or penis enlargement, this kind of thing is a numbers game, and we're sure there's enough similarly-minded (or similarly out-of-their-minded) tweetie-brains around to make PY's PR newswire outlay worth the investment and then some.
