Celebrate World UFO Day with Mulder and Scully

July 1, 2016

Today is World UFO Day. What better way to celebrate this “unearthly” holiday than with a Mulder and Scully movie image mash-up?

FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully have been tracking paranormal activities since 1993 and have had some pretty “close encounters of the third kind.”

Especially that one snowy night while innocently walking through a quiet, suburban California neighborhood. Little did they know that the Reese’s Pieces they were munching on would attract such “extra-terrestrial” attention.

With the introduction of technology, however, UFO tracking became easier than ever for Mulder and Scully. No longer could they deny what was going on within their own “district” and they were convinced that “the truth was out there.”
