Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Unsure of how to vote today on Initiative 300, which would create an official Denver UFO commission? On the fence regarding whether or not the city should bother creating a body "to help ensure the health, safety, and cultural awareness of Denver residents and visitors in relation to potential encounters or interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their vehicles," as it's put in the official ballot question?

The video below, produced by chief loony E.T. expert Jeff Peckman and the rest of the Initiative 300 crew, should put all such questions to rest, since it's downright impossible to argue with its logic. Why? Cuz its a rap video. About pink UFOs.
