Pssst! Want to win $1 million? All you have to do is prove you can read minds, see the future, find a UFO, capture a ghost or leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Joe Rudy and Chris Russo, the guys who got busted for a Morristown-area UFO hoax over the winter, are promoting James Randi’s longstanding $1 million offer to anyone who can prove anything paranormal or supernatural.

“We’re both neutral. We’re just asking people to prove it,” said Chris, a 29-year-old pharmaceutical salesman who lives in Morris Plains.
“People want something extraterrestrial or supernatural to believe in,” added Joe, 28, a musician and former science teacher. “Sometimes the truth isn’t as fun.”
Russo and Rudy reprised an old trick–helium balloons and flares–to fool people into reporting UFO sightings over Morris County on several occasions. The proximity to aviation at Morristown Airport did not sit well with authorities, and a Morris Plains judge slapped them with a community service sentence.
“Park Rec in Hanover Township welcomed us with open arms. People came to shake our hands,” said Joe.
What astounds Chris is that some websites still insist those flares really were UFOs.
“There are still people out there who truly believe we were paid by the government to create a lie, to cover up that there are little green men,” he said. Their ruse, which they publicized with video on YouTube, is described in the latest issue of The Skeptic magazine.
