image for Latest NASA blockbuster a flop!
Blooper! A still from the Mars explorer footage shows what appears to be the arse imprint of someone in jeans!

Box office records for the latest NASA blockbuster based on an unmanned landing on planet Mars have proved disappointing.

Filmed at the massive open air studio known as 'Area 51', the latest would be blockbuster was shot in the barren desert there, with the obligatory orange filter.

The studios big break came in 1969 with the now infamous 'Man walks on the moon' starring Neil Armstrong. Bloopers from this now legendary mockumentary, and even full length comedy specials based on this fictional account of what a genuine moon landing might look like account for a massive 65.3487% of youtube traffic.

During the 1990s the studio was struggling as more spectacular sci-fi blockbusters hit the big screen. NASA decided to branch out into breathtaking still faked space imagery. Who after all has not seen the dazzling full colour images of distant nebulae, which were actually filmed by the monochrome Hubble telescope?

Bloopers from the latest Mars 'landing' are now hitting the web. Especially funny is one showing a McDonalds happy meal box being blown across the bottom right hand corner of the shot.

Make Gary Potter's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
