UFO returns to McCovey Cove, dazzles with light show

When last we saw the Unidentified Floating Object in McCovey Cove, we thought it might be the actions of some sort of evil alien plot. Possibly, even, a plot of Space Jam-ian proportions. God forbid.

Thankfully, it seems they came in peace. In fact, if an alien invasion turns out to be this psychedelic, I think we would all gladly welcome it. They clearly know how to party much better than we do.

But, as far as we can tell, aliens don't exist. So, who could be responsible for such a display? As Sherlock Holmes said, "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

Clearly, it was Daft Punk.
