Netizens react to alleged alien caught on camera in Laguna

-A A +A

SOME netizens reacted negatively to television report aired last Thursday night about an alleged alien photograph by a village councilor in Laguna.

The report said that Nestor Jaurigue, a barangay official at San Roque in Victoria, Laguna, was taking photographs of a drainage canal in the village when a small, strange creature appeared on the pictures.

Jaurigue said the alien-like creature popped out for more than 10 times in all the photos he took.

Netizens, however, were not convinced on how the alien emerged in the photographs because they believed that these have been Photoshopped, or digitally altered.

Many assumed that the alien seen in the picture was just one of the effects that could be used in any photo editor.

Moreover, some said that maybe Jaurigue's child used his phone and tripped over him since he did not know anything about photo editing software and application.

Other comments also stressed that this kind of news should not be tackled because it was obviously edited.

Photo Editor, Webcam Toy, and Camera 360 are some of the photo-editing applications that can create photo effects.

The viral video already garnered 184,876 views, 80 likes and 33 unlikes. (Ruth Abbey Gita/Sunnex)
