It’s been rumored for years: With NASA fighting to be the first country to put men on the moon in the late 1960s, the government tapped visionary director Stanley Kubrick to film a fake landing that would be passed off as real. It’s ridiculous, of course, but the rumor persists.
The rumor might be silly, but it’s still so fascinatingly fun that it’s stuck around for years. If anyone could’ve pulled this off, it’s obviously Kubrick. He’s the guy behind 2001: A Space Odyssey, and if he could do that, he could certainly pull off some low-res footage of a supposed moon landing.
It seems the rumors have finally gotten under the skin of Vivian Kubrick, Stanley’s daughter, so she’s taken to Twitter to debunk the theory for good. You know, just in case the Snopes file isn’t enough for you.
Check out Vivian’s statement below and let us know what you think:
