My Thoughts: No idea who this guy is. YouTube is a whole little section of the internet that has its own celebrities and personalities that I’m completely oblivious to.
At one point they were talking about a UFO found footage show that aired on TV back in the ’90s. I believe it was Joe who thought Phil was talking about the alien autopsy video, but I think that Phil was talking about Alien Abduction: Incident in Lake County which I remember watching when it was originally aired.
