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:

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
