'Time-Traveling Alien Archaeologist' From the Year 6491 Warns Yellowstone Volcano Doomsday Is Imminent

Remember that really creepy interview with a time-traveling alien that popped up on YouTube a few years ago? Looked pretty realistic, even after it was revealed to be the product of SFX wizard Aristomenis Tsirbas. Compare that video to the new video on ApexTV, where a young man in a black hoodie (sporting an English accent) claims to be a time-traveling alien archaeologist from the year 6491 who was trapped here by signal interference caused by the recent super blue blood moon.



According to the 'time traveler': "What had happened was the geological event had disrupted the signal somehow and I got backchannels flooding into my system from outside sources and it essentially fried the operating system of my ship, which means that I am stuck here until another research team lands on this planet."



From there, he goes on to warn that the Yellowstone volcano is going to erupt within the next 200 years, essentially turning the US into an ash-covered wasteland.

 

Learning about this is part of his job as a cultural and historical researcher, he says. When asked where he's from, he says "I'm from a planetary system that is not this one, I'm sorry I'm being very vague. I cannot be specific, it's company procedure. Essentially what I am is I'm sort of like an archaeologist." So what kind of strange, futuristic name does this time-traveler from another solar system possess? 


James Oliver. That's his name.

 



This isn't even worth tearing apart because this guy is clearly not even trying. If you watch the actual video, you can tell this is some British kid making a bunch of shit up as he goes along, trying not to stumble over his words as he strings together a bunch of erroneous scientific claims with a half-assed sci-fi narrative.

 

Among the best gaffes include his confusing of fission with fusion as the process that powers stars and his claim that fission can generate more power than was used to create it.


He uses both these mistakes to explain how time travel works, along with a vague reference to particle accelerators and a 'quantum drive'. Despite the fact that he's supposed to be a trained extraterrestrial scientist from a wholly alien culture in the future, his distinctly 21-century British mannerisms constantly cause him to qualify his statements and apologize to the interviewer.



I could go on demolishing James Oliver's almost 40-minute parade of time-travel BS, but anyone with a high school diploma and two eyes can probably do that on their own.
