The convoy that sent twitter into speculation on Monday morning has finally been revealed as a publicity stunt for the new film INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE.
WHO KNEW?! As I sit here casually sipping my English tea, oblivious to the potential end of the human race as we know it.
First spotted at 5am leaving Cardiff in Wales, the eye-catching convoy containing a number of slimy, tentacle-ridden hyper-realistic aliens from the upcoming sequel, was soon the talk of twitter as it snaked its way through London, via Westminster Bridge, Buckingham Palace and Leicester Square.
The aliens, which have been created in Wales over the last two months by talented sculptor Samantha Williams using extensive references from the new film, attracted most attention as they passed Buckingham Palace.
Here are just a few select tweets from the public as they saw aliens just casually passing them by:
@LeilaRobertson: On my way to work and did not expect to see a convoy of steaming, slimy aliens being transported #IndependenceDay
@Jacob_Beecham: Great publicity stunt for #IndependenceDay Resurgence. Aliens look amazing. Can’t wait to see the film
@orgarnham: “Rush hour in London – angry cabbies, furious cyclists and steaming alien corpses. #IndependenceDay #OnlyInLondon”
INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE IS RELEASED BY TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX THIS THURSDAY 23rd June 2016
Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defence program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
