People across the country wasted no time in producing some weird, wacky and downright hilarious video clips.
Launched back in October as part of the firm's Halloween celebrations, the competition - which offered a grand prize of $1 million - required participants to capture 'scientific evidence of extraterrestrials'.

Suffice to say, the 'evidence' captured by those taking part was anything but scientific, instead utilizing puppets, silly costumes and crude special effects to entertain and amuse.

Some of the entries looked like they had been put together in around five minutes, while others were quite elaborate and could certainly be in with a shot of winning the prize.

One video showed someone simply hold up two alien toy figures in front of the camera while another saw someone in a costume take control of the house's owner and use his treat-or-treat bowl as a hat.
"There are so many that I've seen that have just been incredibly creative and fun," said Ring's chief revenue officer, Mimi Swain.

As for the winning entry - we may have to wait a little longer to see that.

"We have gotten a number of submissions that our expert is reviewing," said Swain.

You can check out some of the entries below.
