General Zod & the Ashtar Command

Here's an interesting new viral video for the upcoming Man of Steel movie, with general Zod —played by Michael Shannon— giving a message to the people of Earth:

To any seasoned UFO buff, this should immediately remind you of the infamous Vrillon transmission, broadcast on the Hannington transmitter of Southern Television in the United Kingdom for six minutes at 5:10 PM on Saturday November 26, 1977. Vrillon claimed to be a representative of the Ashtar Command, and his message is consistent with the typical 'space-brotherly' tone of peace & a call to disarmament.

Although many people consider it to be nothing but a hoax, to this day the identity of the perpetrator —who at that would have needed considerable technical expertise to hijack the signal of a TV station— has never been discovered.

A rather interesting plot element, which helps to enhance the tone of 'authenticity' to this new installment of the Superman story —although I don't think Zod will show the same benevolent intentions than his buddy Vrillon had 35 years ago...

Man of Steel comes to theaters in June 2013.
