Dubious footage of a gigantic disc-shaped object filmed in Malaysia has gone viral online this week.
The video, which looks like something out of the 1996 science fiction blockbuster Independence Day, shows a large flying disc hovering over a village in the Kuala Krai district of Malaysia before looping around and performing a much slower pass over the area while tilted on to its side.
The footage has since gone viral on social media in Malaysia and has caused such a stir that local police have reportedly found it necessary to issue a statement calling for everyone to remain calm.
Elsewhere however the 'UFO', which has been widely dismissed as a hoax, is thought to be more the product of computer graphics software than it is genuine evidence of extraterrestrial visitors.
