If any alien race travels to Earth, they must have a much superior technology than ours, knowledge in physics beyond relativity theory so it is highly unlikely that they can be captured if they visit Earth unless they are on some kind of duckblind mission, yet again as they would be much smarter than we, they should be able to get their folks back.
In short, 'humans capture an alien and interrogate him' is an unlikely event IMO. Not to talk about the fake looking hovering head video, but it still looks nice

I saw the thread title and thought that it was going to be about Zardoz and his secret mission!

It would seem fake for many reasons, the most glaring being that it's narrated at exactly the length of the YouTube clip. Were it real, it would likely be just a segment of a longer video document -- which means this clip was narrated specifically for this length. Why would a top secret video of an actual alien be edited down and narrated for YouTube distribution?

Also, the narrator states specifically they meds are not shining their lights directly in the creatures eyes... right when they are doing exactly that. Yet the alien doesn't react to these bright lights at all... odd, considering how dark the room had to be for its comfort.

The flashing light devices on the table seem to serve no read-out purpose either, except to flash and blink... very 1950s idea of sci-fi. If this is how the government documents alien interrogations, they're idiots.

Where's that clip of the Romulan shouting "IT'S A FAKE!" ??

yeah....I'll go for FAKE.....to me, the idea that the aliens had eliminated all microbial life in their civilization just screams "thing that sounds scientific, but makes no sense what's so ever"....
