I've offered a commentary on the Dudley Dorito since it’s invention and xxxdonutzxxx posted a video alleging to be the Dorito a couple of months back. After I brought it to his attention (a couple of times!!) HoaxKiller debunked it via his own YouTube video thus eliciting a takedown notice from xxxdonutzxxx courtesy of YouTube. This subsequently led to HoaxKillers YouTube channel being suspended, however as the usage does/did constitute ‘fair use’ the channel was -and is always- reactivated (but it still reeks of bureaucracy (and it got a lot worse with the Google takeover).
A usual I digress, in short the above course of events resulting in me documenting the takedown when Blogging about the Dudley Dorito (video) hoax, prompting me to write the following:
If you'll indulge me I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts about the takedown, to be honest I've long since accepted that people are going to post hoax UFO videos as well as images, sighting accounts etc. and whilst I don't condone it (and obviously wouldn't do it personally) I've also made my peace with it.
However to post a hoax UFO video that you've created yourself is one thing but to then actively pursue & file copyright infringement claims against other videos that only use a few seconds for analysis, and more importantly for an analysis which exposes the hoax is a completely different kettle of fish. This, in my opinion, elevates a prank into purposeful deception and when this is somewhere like YouTube which makes it incredibly easy to monetise video views (and when this source of revenue is activated), well then it takes on a much more sinister guise as essentially it then becomes obtaining money by deception, a deception which the hoaxer further promotes by invoking copyright infringement claims solely to cover-up his lies and ultimately to protect his source of income.
YouTube not only allows & enables this deception but judging by their eagerness to comply with such petty demands they positively encourage it. Surely examples such as the above would constitute 'fair use' anyway and so should be exempt from this apparently automated takedown procedure? Or at the very least the complainant should be required to provide further information or evidence that this is in fact a valid copyright claim and not simply to protect and perpetuate their own hoax.
I mean let's face it, it's the YouTube community who are the prime targets of such hoaxes as well of course as the advertisers, many of whom who I'm sure would take issue with their products being promoted by videos purporting to be something they are not.
But to drag the thread back on topic I was aware of him prior to this and I’d go as far as to say that EVERY video linked to xxxdonutzxxx, his earlier incarnations and his other YouTube socks are all 100% hoax (CG).
We are on the same page Doc..My kind words were not flattery but the naked truth. This last video of Donutz..posted by another got my attention because of donutz name reminsicent of Deeznutz of ancient lore..From my previous posts in the humour section I mentioned I was using your excellent archive of flikr which is on scribd in pdf format..
I dont use google anymore for searches but do use Altavista. The difference is like night and day. It yielded the money mking nature of these things. And Doughnutz is doing hamsomely(sic)well..most people never see how this works..and how much the return is.. http://socialblade.com/youtube/user/xxxdonutzxxx as it should it lead like a road to Rome..the truth.
As I mentioned in that video thread.. These people do not stop..even if caught just change names or site..like a bogus contarctor....its too easy to do. the money is addictive..money is obviously great..and Google considers him a partner..They dont care because even a bad takedown..can lead to a good fight ..generates hits and more ad exposure..and the best part..no shortage of looky loos..
The more hoax mills we catch the better..until a genetic mutation occurrs in our allegedly alien genetically manipulated species..that makes us impervious to BS..it will be an uphill battle.

"As i speak spanish i can understand what the pilots are saying,and they are quite scared because the ufo's 11 of them are at the same altitude as them. Also when they leave one of the UFO,s starts to follow them.."
It appears to me that the video is shot from a stationary camera. I don't see the kind of relative movement between the clouds (or trees) and the camera that I would expect were the camera moving at a fairly high speed. The camera appears to pause in one spot for a time, then pan.
There are some people saying that its a balloon but one of the things I've noticed with these objects is that they can be stationary for several minutes then continue moving again. Here are some stills from the video...
Incredible video of UFOs hovering over the moon (MANY) in HD
Nice lunar ap !
I didn't see anything " hovering " as stated, but I did see satellites (obvious solar panels ), birds, and what not. Every once in awhile, if you're REALLY lucky, you might see an INTERESTING jet fly in the fov......
