Koi UFO Video 041: "New" black and white alien autopsy footage (Ant and Dec movie)
[DEBUNKED] Koi UFO Video 041 is black and white footage appearing to show an alien on a stretcher surrounded by men in military uniforms. It has been posted online with titles indicating that it shows an alien recovered at Roswell in 1947.
A copy of this video posted on Youtube in July 2006 had over 1 million views by October 2014. The footage has been repeatedly posted on various UFO discussion forums since 2006.
In fact, as detailed below, the footage was filmed by the producers of the movie "Alien Autopsy" - a comedy released in 2006 starring British entertainment duo "Ant and Dec" (i.e. Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly).

This video has been repeatedly posted online with titles that suggest it shows an alien recovered in Roswell in 1947, such as "Roswell 1947 Alien Footage!" and "MUST SEE ! Smoking Gun Found In Roswell Video".
In fact, this footage was filmed by the producers of the movie "Alien Autopsy" - a comedy released in 2006 starring British entertainment duo "Ant and Dec" (i.e. Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly).
The relevant footage appeared at the end of the movie.
The "Alien Autopsy" (2006) comedy was produced with the assistance of Ray Santilli (the chap behind the original "alien autopsy" footage) and he appeared in the movie itself - as shown by the relevant entries in the IMDB movie database.
Ray Santilli has stated (in the documentary "Eamonn Investigates") that the movie tells the true story behind the original infamous "alien autopsy" footage released by Ray Santilli in 1995, i.e. that the alien autopsy footage he released in 1995 was not original footatge, although Santilli insisted in the "Eamoon Investigates" documentary - with a BIG grin on his face - that the infamous "alien autopsy" footage was a "reconstruction", not a "hoax".
Notably, British researcher Philip Mantle contacted an executive of the company that made the movie (QWERTY Films) and that executive confirmed that the "new" alien autopsy clip was filmed by them as part of the movie.
The artist that created the dummies for the original 1995 footage and the 2006 movie (i.e. John Humphreys) also confirmed to Philip Mantle that that he "made the alien and performed the effects for the black and white sequence in the Ant and Dec film".
It was interesting to see various webpages claim that the source of the "new" footage is unknown. This sort of claim is pretty common in relation to hoaxed footage.
I wonder whether the footage was first put onto the Internet by someone that geniunely found the footage puzzling or if (which is considerably more likely in my opinion) it was:
(1) posted by somone that thought it would be fun to try to fool people by posting the footage from the movie without mentioning the actual source (in the same way that clips from various other movies and documentaries have appeared on Youtube during the last few years); or
(2) posted by somone employed to generate publicity for the relevant movie, i.e. part of a viral marketing campaign.
