Overlords of the UFO (1976) (part 12 of 14)
And now, my favorite part of the program, simply because this moron is about to shut up for a few minutes. It seems Israeli psychic Uri Geller, surely the most famous Israeli psychic ever, was doing speaking engagements when one of his books came out. His book signing tour came to Seattle, and that’s where this next segment was filmed.
Uri takes the stage to thunderous applause, this despite wearing ugly maroon pants and a weird shirt with all kinds of splotches on it. Voicing over the footage, the host calls him a “convincing witness to the UFO”, as well as a convincing future witness at Michael Jackson‘s child molestation trial.
He then claims Uri’s “extrasensory powers” have “baffled” people around the world. Well, so has that riddle about the guy on his way to St. Ives, so what’s your point? “Later, we will see Geller demonstrate his bio-energy powers before a live audience!” Don’t get your hopes up about the awesomeness of that demonstration, by the way. And hilariously, even though the sound of thunderous applause continues, they’re showing shots of the crowd just sitting there and staring. Anyway, Uri gets on the mic, ready to talk right down to earth in a language that everyone here can easily understand, about “the subject of UFOs.”
