On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles of The Mercury Theater on the Air presented an adaptation War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. Welles narrated a series of news bulletins about martians taking over the world. Due to some listeners tuning in mid-broadcast they thought the invasion was real.
Now it's your turn to get those news media/tabloid consumers riled with your own script or news article of an alien invasion; There are so many possibilities such as just a regular ole 1950s invasion, or maybe an illegal alien invasion (i.e. zombies). But whatever you do, the alien should not utter: "Take me to your leader!"
