SpaceX launched its Falcon 9 rocket out of Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Friday. The sight of the rocket soaring through the night sky left many wondering if they were witnessing some sort of alien life form. Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd was one of those people.
It started off with Swae posting a tweet, saying, he spotted "some alien shit" in L.A.
With remnants of the launch in the background, he posted a video where he tried to find the words to describe what he just witnessed. "Bro, look at this shit in the sky, bro," he said. "It was some lights coming out this shit. Some shit fell down and hit the earth, bro. Look at this shit." After a woman off-camera asks if they just saw an alien, he replies, "I think we did, bro."
After finding out about the SpaceX launch, Swae Lee wasn't fully prepared to accept that what he saw was a planned out event. "So I'm sitting here, smoking this blunt, eating these soggy fruity pebbles, and I was thinking about those aliens, bro," he said. "If that was a satellite, don't you think they would have given you a warning? They ain't know that shit was about to come, stay woke. Don't believe the hype."
Through the Rae Srummerd Twitter account, Swae left us with some parting final words.
