The legendary YouTube prankster used a drone to produce fake UFO sightings, then dressed up as an alien.
Gaillard, who remains one of YouTube's most notorious pranksters, is certainly no stranger to controversy having been apprehended by the police on multiple occasions due to his audacious stunts which have included go-karting around town as Mario, dressing up as a speed camera and sneaking into a Mister Universe competition by pretending to be one of the contestants.

His latest stunt, which produced a spate of UFO sightings in southern France, involved flying a drone equipped with a light around the area at the same time each night.

He then dressed up as an alien and pulled a series of elaborate pranks involving a crashed 'UFO'.

These included calling a garage to pick up his broken-down flying saucer, being photographed filling his UFO with gas and being caught trying to hitch-hike to Area 51 on an airport runway.
In another scene, he held up queues of traffic while trying to 'abduct' a cow in the middle of the road.

As is often the case with Gaillard, some of these pranks will have likely put him at odds with local authorities - especially with the fire brigade being called out during the airport gag.

Sightings of his fake drone UFO even made the local news on more than one occassion.

All I need to read is "You Tube Prankster" SMH. I hate those people. YT has a lot of good stuff, if you can look past all the prankers, video game streamer-screamers, and right wing nut jobs.
