Jumping Cow UFO Video
A video posted to youtube about two weeks ago shows a strange light in the sky near Stamford in the UK. Then it pans down to show a herd of cows, and then one of the cows kind of jumps up in the air.



So the cow must be jumping for one of these reasons:
  1. it's really happy
  2. it's being lifted up by the tractor beam of a UFO
  3. it's a CG effect
The answer, according to video analysts that the Huffington Post talked to, is that it's a CG effect. The Stamford Mercury speculates that the video was created to build buzz for an upcoming TV show.

Yeah, cuz when filming a UFO, one always ensures one gets the herd of cows in shot, even if it means restricting the anomalous object to a top corner. The cow jumped to try to direct the attention of the film-makers the the alien spacecraft, as though to say, 'What are you filming us for? Lookie up there!'
