The Nuevo Laredo Alien
Region of origin: Nuevo Laredo, Mexico
In July of 2015, footage supposedly showing a pink-hued alien figure scampering around the roof of a ranch house in Nuevo Laredo was posted on YouTube before making the rounds on some local television news and blogs. The video was quickly taken down but not before the story had spread. Less widespread was the correction that the video actually belonged to Jose Joaquim Perez, a Nicaraguan video producer who had created it along with several similar ones for his YouTube channel before someone had taken an edited version and posted it as real footage. As ever, the real monster here
is copyright infringement.
