Probably the most famous case which everyone knows is the radio show of "war of the worlds" October 30, 1938, when the audience took the play for real news report: more than a million residents of the northeast United States believed the attack of the Martians and panic.
A similar case occurred in Jordan on 1 April 2010 a local newspaper reported on the landing in the area of space aliens. Despite the obvious absurdity, the news caused panic among the residents.

The story of the book "the Ring of king Solomon" (Lorenz Conrad,1980):


As I'll discuss in a later Chapter, jackdaws enduring someone in front of the whole jackdaw colony once took one of them in his hands and thereby caused a stir, followed by the special "rumbling" screaming. This greatly interfered with my work on the banding of young jackdaws of a colony, settled on my house. When I took the Chicks to tag them with aluminum rings, jackdaws could not see me, and immediately began a wild thundering concert. How to prevent development of the birds have a constant trust in me through the procedure banding — because this situation could cause irreparable harm to all my work. The solution seemed obvious — dressing. But how? Very simple. The costume lay ready in a box in the attic and very suitable for my purposes, although it was usually sick once a year — sixth of December, to celebrate the oldest Austrian holiday, the day of St. Nicholas and the Devil. It was a gorgeous fur costume devil with mask covering the whole head, with horns and a tongue sticking out and a long devilish tail.

I would like to know, what would you have thought if one fine July day, suddenly heard the cry of the wild daws coming from the pointed roof of a tall building and looking up, would see Satan himself: with horns, a tail and claws, with a protruding tongue from the heat, Satan, climbing from the chimney to the chimney and surrounded by a swarm of black birds, producing a deafening thundering shouts? I think that the total disturbing impression of such a spectacle can disguise the fact that Satan, with ordinary forceps wore aluminum rings on the legs of young jackdaws, then carefully put them back in the nest. When I finished ringing the first time noticed a large crowd gathered in the village street. People looked up with the same expression of horror that those tourists behind the fence of my garden. Because the ability to show who wears the mask of Satan, was completely contrary to my goals, I was limited by the fact that a friendly waved to the crowd with his devilish tail, and disappeared through the hatch leading to the attic.

Falsification,arranged offended by the architect: He has attached to the Windows of the niches that the wind was making awful noises. What, in fact, I went to the legend about the existence of ghosts in this castle.

Mockumentary film, pseudodocumentaries, mocumentary (mockumentary; from to mock "frame", "fun" + documentary "documentary") - film and television genre feature film, which is characterized by imitation of the documentary, falsification and mystification. The genre emerged in the 1950-ies in response to the commercialization of documentary. Movies of this genre correspond to the externally documentary films, but their subject matter in contrast to this documentary film, is fictional and is especially "masked" by reality. Sometimes in this movie creates the illusion of reality through the participation of celebrities and other really existing people. Representatives of the genre can also be found in the literature.

This includes "fake" or "fake" news. This is information hoax or deliberate spread of misinformation in social media and traditional media. Usually they publish the members of the so-called "yellow press", giving such information checked. The authors of the fake news often use catchy headlines or completely fabricated stories to increase readership and citations. However, such news are sometimes published and respected media, such as drawing by 1 April. Now got a fairly extensive distribution resources (news sites, social networks, etc.) which are entirely devoted to the publication of such articles. They often have a humorous or satirical character. Typically, such resources are indicated in the "About us" section that "all these news are fiction, their entertainment, and any resemblance to real persons can be considered random." Thus, not infrequently, such "entertainment" news picked up by other information resources, accidentally or intentionally passing them off as real.

This type of explanation can also include the facts in which the witnesses see the set of films, the training base (military, space, etc.), as well as the involved people there. They can be deliberately or accidentally become the victims of the hoax, illusion, or delusion. For example, astronauts on the training database, simulating the lunar surface, can be mistaken for aliens.
