Here’s the wikipedia article, feel free to go down that rabbit hole. This is what the FBI has to say about it. Here and here are some good articles on it and this article is where I got all that info about how people in the 70s were apparently very concerned their daughters were going to run off and join some kind of liberal ‘movement’.  Also, here a video of the bank robbery from the surveillance footage!

Look at that beautiful, spooky, old-timey UFO photo up there! You’ve probably seen it before, but if not, take some time to bask in it’s glorious hoax-iness.

And these are the trailers for the weird shit we used to watch when we were kids. Explains a lot, huh?
