A UFO Crash Landed At The Grove Just In Time For 'The X-Files'
The truth is at the Grove, apparently. In anticipation for the new season of The X-Files, a UFO has crash-landed.
It's weird to see a smoldering UFO juxtaposed against an Athleta store, but that seems to be the case at The Grove. The X-Files photo op even comes complete with a 'home video' that was, in home video-style, shot vertically.
I guess it turns out extraterrestrials and Angelenos have something in common: we both hate parking at The Grove. Hey-o!
You can see the UFO for yourself today and tomorrow between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. If you take a selfie with it, you'll get a cupcake, apparently. The latest season of The X-Files premieres this Sunday on FOX.
