If you had to explain the 2016 election to an alien from another planet, they’d probably find it a little far-fetched. However, former-Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge reportedly enlisted Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta to participate in his upcoming documentary about UFOs, because that’s the type of world we’re living in.
DeLonge, who sang a killer verse on “I Miss You,” is an outspoken alien conspiracy theorist, to the point where he told Mic that he’d quit Blink-182 last year so that he could focus on exposing the UFO menace fulltime. During the course of his quest, a Wikileaks bombshell reveals, DeLonge reached out to Podesta, a former high-ranking government official and fellow UFO enthusiast, for assistance.
According to The Wall Street Journal, DeLonge sent Podesta at least two emails on the subject of UFOs, and further emails uncovered by Wikileaks suggest that Podesta participated in an upcoming documentary DeLonge is producing as part of his elaborate Sekret Machines transmedia series (release date TBD).
When Podesta left his job as President Barack Obama’s senior advisor in February of last year, he tweeted that his biggest failure in the role was failing to secure “the disclosure of the UFO files.”
In his two emails, which were sent over the course of the past two years, DeLonge requests “a casual, and private conversation in person,” telling Podesta that he wants to introduce him to “two very ‘important’ people.”
“I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic,” he wrote.
Another email included a discussion about the alleged UFO cover-up in Roswell, New Mexico, and DeLonge said he was working with a former military official. It’s unclear what Podesta’s level of response was.
The Clinton campaign didn’t have anything to say about the extraterrestrial nature of the conversation when The Wall Street Journal asked. Rather, the campaign just decried Wikileaks and its alleged ties to hacks that were possibly sponsored by the Russian government.
Anyway, listen to “Aliens Exist,” off of Blink-182’s masterpiece Enema of the State, below.
