Dan Aykroyd was on Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night, talking about James Brown and UFO's. Apparently, not only is Dan a true believe when it comes to alien visitations, he even had a close encounter himself. He was flying on the Concorde once and saw some lights taking off in a way that seemed inexplicable. And he wasn't the only one....apparently 2 others shared his sighting.
He talked about this a bit with Jimmy, who tried to take him seriously. The audience, however, was giggling throughout the whole thing, unsure if this was some sorta joke. But it's no joke...it's been an interest of Aykroyd's for years and he even did a documentary about it called "Dan Aykroyd Unplugged on UFO's." He plugged this in a 2006 CNN interview with Anderson Cooper which is even more awkward.
To make things even weirder, Dan is also responsible for that new vodka that comes in a skull shaped bottle, currently display in NYC liquor store windows. It's made in Canada and Dan is an investor in the company. But to top it all off, this vodka-making, UFO believing, James Brown loving guy was on the Kimmel in the first place because he is voice of Yogi Bear in a new 3D kids movie opening Friday. I know...I buried the lead right? :)
