As a writer and broadcaster specialising in subjects that include the unexplained, conspiracy theories and sci-fi, I often take part in PR campaigns to promote alien-themed movies, computer games, etc. There's no secret about this and indeed it's openly advertised on my website: http://www.nickpope.net/pr-campaigns.htm As part of the marketing campaign for the launch of the alien invasion-themed Sony PlayStation game Resistance: Burning Skies I was commissioned to draw up a war plan detailing how the UK government might respond to a real-life alien invasion. The document (and a clear explanation of the circumstances that led to its creation) can be read at the following link, third story down: http://www.nickpope.net/latest-news.htm Various media outlets ran stories based on this, but to the best of my knowledge all of them contained a phrase such as to mark the forthcoming release of the Sony PlayStation game Resistance: Burning Skies, Sony has teamed up with former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope to produce. It seems that despite the blatant product plug, a few people didn't spot that this was a marketing campaign. Best wishes, Nick Pope http://www.nickpope.net Listen to 'Strange Days...
