War of the worlds: Terrifying tripod alien ‘invades’ Russian city (VIDEO)

War of the worlds: Terrifying tripod alien ‘invades’ Russian city (VIDEO)
No, this isn’t another Pokémon hunt. In fact, it’s a lot more terrifying than that. If you’ve ever wondered what an alien invasion would look like, then look no further this three-legged extraterrestrial ‘spotted’ in the Russian city of Novosibirsk.

As a siren booms around the city warning of its presence, a tripodic alien reminiscent of Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds can be seen emerging from the mist and fog that cloaks the metropolis, surveying the scene for its next victim far below.

Complete with a menacing soundtrack, the echo of its tentacles hitting the ground creates an even scarier atmosphere for viewers, which the video has been quickly racking up.

The video was created by a Russian visual effects artist and, since being uploaded on Wednesday, has been viewed over 860,000 times.
