All manner of vehicles can be found cruising roads around the world, from $100 rust buckets to $5 million hypercars. As it turns out, even mysterious flying saucers are trundling the streets.
In Ireland, over the weekend, locals of the small town of Gorey were shocked to see an unidentified driving object (UDO) cruising down the main street, seemingly being chased by local law enforcement.
The UDO was designed by local student Ali Kemal Ali for the town’s pop art show as part of a project for his visual arts course. To help promote his unique creation, Ali roped in the support of the local police force to provide an escort down the main road for his driving saucer.
Speaking to local media outlet Independent, the 53-year-old student said “I thought how can I attract a bit more interest, so I thought I’ll go and ask the guards. I asked can they give me a police escort with my UFO. They loved it. They were brilliant.”
The UDO runs on two electric scooters and is fitted with a subwoofer to pump out the mysterious sounds of a flying saucer. Complemented with a laser, smoke machine and strobe light, it’s the real deal.
