Buzz Aldrin, one of the astronauts who were believed to have landed on the moon in 1969 with Apollo 11, has admitted today that it was all a big joke.
“When we first did it, it was supposed to be a prank for a television show”, Buzz explains. “We were going to say a funny catchphrase when setting a foot on the moon. Neil, for some reason said the small step for man thing and people didn’t realise it wasn’t real. For absolutely no reason, we decided to go along with it. We pretended it was all real. Everybody kept quiet about it until today”.
The only big problem is that the NASA didn’t know that the technology would evolve so much in the future.
“We also didn’t realise that there would be so many smart free thinkers”, Buzz continues. “They refuse to trust the government like sheep. Had we known about them, we would have been more careful not to leave a man with long hair or a cat in the reflexion of the visor! Oh, well, lesson learned”.
Buzz Aldrin says he still doesn’t regret pranking the entire planet for almost 50 years.
“It was a lot of fun”, Buzz says. “Every time a conspiracy theorist found a new reason to doubt our version, we would fight to keep our composure. It was hard not to giggle like a bunch of 4 years olds. Sorry World, we tricked you. The clever guys on Internet totally busted us!”
