We joke about the reptilian invasion of Earth a lot, but we had no idea it’d be this cute.

The internet rediscovered an old video from 2014 recently, with a description that reads “Frankie of Frankie Tortoise Tails invades a local Pet Supermarket for a Halloween Costume Contest.”

Frankie’s costume is flawless, not only because of a perfectly fitted UFO that lights up and blinks in multiple colors but also because of the epic X-Files music that accompanies his march.

Do you think Frankie is named after Franklin the Turtle? Is this space invader a kind one? There’s a little tortoise-shaped bed right there, but Frankie doesn’t have time for rest. Where is he going? What is his mission?

The United States government has not yet responded to this footage of a UFO sighting, likely because they’re hiding the truth from the American people. But we won’t be fooled, we’ve made contact and it’s only a matter of time before more Frankie UFOs arrive. Or maybe they already have. Cue the X-Files music.
