The weak ET angle

I don't feel very passionate about what I feel are the only "ET" things in the whole show but I'm gonna throw 'em out there anyway because I'm a "that's how I tell if spaghetti is done that way" kind of guy.

The first one is the obvious flaming Olympic rings, which reminded me very much of a space shuttle or a rocket or something:

The above space shuttle pic is the only one I could find that even remotely resembles what I "see" and I'm not too sure that even if I do "see" it, it resembles "ET."  It's just weak.

The other thing was the actual "ET" look-alike scene minus the moon behind it - the mothman type creature riding and then flying a bicycle:

And he's not exactly ET anyway...

Although there are analogies to be made, they are weak.  I don't think there really was an "ET" scene.


  1. Olympic rings compared to Ezekiel's chariot.

    at Atlanta, Georgia 1996 Olmpics

    Rings could be representing an ET vehicle.

  2. Thanks Shoshanah.

    They do represent that but I don't feel very strongly about it here.

  3. Not so weak - UK papers are implying it too. Blast Off!

  4. I thought this was interesting since the rings are compared to Ezekiel's chariot, though this reference is to Elijah's chariot.

    From Blake' poem Jerusalem

    "Chariot of fire" "byword for divine energy"

    The line from the poem "Bring me my Chariot of fire!" draws on the story of 2 Kings 2:11, where the Old Testament prophet Elijah is taken directly to heaven: "And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven." The phrase has become a byword for divine energy, and inspired the title of the 1981 film Chariots of Fire. The plural phrase "chariots of fire" is in reference to 2 Kings 6:16-18

    Ring of fire also during the crowning of a baby being born.
