Remember the movie They Live? It’s the 1988 John Carpenter film about a group of elite aliens that control human beings on Earth through a TV signal that keeps people subdued with messages to obey government, consume and stay asleep like good little sheeple.

A drifter realizes what’s up by looking through the Hoffman sunglasses and seeing the true from of these alien controllers and their brainwashing campaign for what it really is. Tagline: “They live, we sleep.”

For 1988, the movie even had flying taser drones. So basically it’s a lot like America today (except the lizard alien part, which is debatable depending on who you ask).

Wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper played the drifter in that film, and recently he announced on his Twitter account that They Live actually wasn’t a work of fiction, but a documentary.

Directly preceding this announcement was a flurry of pro-Second Amendment tweets in direct reference to a key line in the film where the drifter walks into a bank wearing those sunglasses and says, “I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubble gum.”



Those of us who consider ourselves ‘awake’ to America’s descent into a total police state dictatorship understand these references all too well. Sadly, it can be tough to watch They Live and not flinch at the fact that, on many levels, it hits very close to home (sort of the way a charming reality TV show would).

In fact, this video of subliminal messages hidden in a 1960s-era national anthem sign-off below shows the movie may hit a little too close to home:

Oh, and in case you are curious about what Roddy had to say regarding the government being shut down this week, here you go:

  1. He’s right about this film. There ARE alien parasites living on this earth in human form. These aliens aren’t from space but live deep undeground they are called vril. they inject the human eye with their proboscis traveling to the humans brain and takes over that human. human is dead but body lives with vril consciousness thus now being a drone. they are your work leaders politicians and the evil people who commit violent insane crimes along with clones. We need to wipe these drones out! Gas and kill the vril! Fight for humanity! you’ll find more truth just Google Donald Marshall his FB too.

    eg. the sunglasses that reveal the aliens – a symbol of an experience of semiotics that you can experience yourself IF you are prepared to submerge yourself in it – this to is a symbol for the hidden ‘ASLEEP’ texts in the media in the film by Carpenter. Again YOU CAN ACHIEVE THESE STATES – simply study semiotics (the study of signs) and you will be doing it all the time – wondering when it will stop (it won’t) and wishing it was like sunglasses that you could merely take off

    great video.

  4. Roddy is right. It’s amazing how prescient and topical that film still is. Interestingly enough, the author of the book They Live is based on, Ray Faraday Nelson, was a friend of Philip K. Dick, who wrote his share of prophetic novels, some of which have been adapted to memorable films such as Blade Runner, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly and Radio Free Albemuth.
