If the samples shown in the youtube clip are of the same variety
Budd Hopkins speaks of, then I would be inclined to dismiss
them.

I believe the general 'cursive'-type flow to be correct, but the
actual symbols seem childish and fanciful.  In fact, what comes
to mind is the medieval drawings of true living animals foreign
to Europeans. We know the animals exist, but the drawings of the
animals by eye-witnesses bear little resemblance to their true
physical forms.

Likewise, I feel a similar scenario has occurred with regard to
this subject..

Then again, it's possible that 'fake' symbols were created for
the benefit of the clip.
