(Newser) – Add this to your X Files. A figure looking amazingly like ET has been posted on a self-described "intergalactic news site" and has grabbed 1.5 million viewers on YouTube in the last three days. The "creature" was filmed lying on snow in the Russian Republic of Buryatia not far from a reported UFO incident in Serbia last month, reports All News Web. "We found him over there. It must have been lying there for days," says
a translation for the Russian-speaking videographers.

One investigator called the film "clearly a hoax," and said the figure was likely made with some clear Jello and animal or chicken skin. "It's not badly done. It took somebody probably a couple of hours to make," he tells ABC News. "There's probably a butcher shop somewhere missing some pieces. It's no alien."
