Stanley Kubrick Faked The Moon Landing
This rumor combines a prominent figure and a major event that have independently fuelled conspiracy theories for years. Stanley Kubrick’s work has been analyzed for decades, which has led to dozens of bizarre theories about some of his behind-the-scenes motives. Likewise, the moon landing has been the target of conspiracy theories since before it happened. Perhaps because he directed the highly influential 2001: A Space Odyssey (for which he hired real NASA employees), Kubrick was accused of producing much of the footage of Apollo 11 and 12. The story goes that when 2001 was in post-production in early 1968, NASA approached Kubrick to direct the moon landing. The launch and splashdown were real, but the spacecraft stayed in Earth’s orbit and fake footage was broadcast as a live feed from the moon. However, a number of facts about the landing are inconsistent with this theory.
Britney Spears Worked For The Bush White House Administration
As far as conspiracy theories go, this is one of the most bizarre and entertaining ones. Britney Spears' rise to fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s was stratospheric; her moves were tracked by everyone from US Weekly to CNN. This is why, as the theory goes, Spears was approached by George Bush’s camp to help cover up his blunders. Conspiracy theorists claim that every major news story about Spears between 2005 and early 2007 (for example, her fifty-five-hour marriage, divorce from Kevin Federline, and shocking head-shaving incident) were stunts manufactured to cover up a Bush blunder. Some even claim that Spears has been in a secret relationship with Karl Rove for years. This bizarre tale seems to stem from a post-9/11 interview Spears did with CNN during which she stated that Americans should trust their president.
