This is crazy!

TLDR: in 1989 Nine Inch Nails recorded a video for their song “Down In It”. They used weather balloons attached to a Super 8 Camera to get some aerial footage. The balloons got away from them in Chicago and a farmer in Michigan found the camera on his property. The film showed men in a specific type of uniform and another man they believed to be dead. That man was Trent Reznor. The local authorities got involved then the FBI got involved. It took the FBI 2 years to finally figure out that this was a band’s music video and that Trent Reznor was alive.

The story was wild enough to have an episode of Hard Copy made for it. Watch the episode of Hard Copy below.
