Speculations about extraterrestrial forces in the country arise after claims of crop circle sightings in Nasugbu, Batangas and Nueva Ecija. A video from Spookify Pinoy sparked the #UFOmg discussion online where drone shots of crop fields in Nasugbu and Nueva Ecija show crop circles—a crop formation or pattern that is usually associated or said to made by UFOs.
People on Twitter expressed mixed reactions and hilarious theories about where the crop circles came from and what it could mean.
Hello Philippines! #UFOmg
I'm coming home soon… They missed me.

The thing abt #UFOmg is that theyre "REAL". There are billions of people on Earth, its impossible that none of us has knowledge with "them". The Nasugbu & Nueva Ecija thing isnt proven to be the works of "them" but its unearthly.

Maybe it is photoshopped, maybe it isn't. We don't know what's real or is it even possible to be that real where two identical marks can be seen on two different places on the same ground where crops on both places are growing on a two-day mysterious event consecutively.#UFOmg

Some are saying that it looks more like a WiFi signal. Is this their way of telling us that we need better internet connection?

Others think that maybe it’s a teaser for an upcoming TV show.

But some are confident that we’re safe from alien invasion as long as “Ang Probinsyano” is alive and still kicking in Philippine television.
Hindi tayo dadalawin ng mga "Alien" hanggat di napapatay si Cardo HAHAHAHA #UFOmg

Maybe change is really coming and Mocha Uson’s jingle is just the beginning.

But after all the buzz, it turns out that it was actually just a marketing stunt for an upcoming show called “Ancient Aliens”.
