Rowdy Roddy Piper Admits “They Live” Was Actually a Documentary

Remember the movie They Live? It’s the 1988 John Carpenter film about a group of elite aliens that control human beings on Earth through a TV signal that keeps people subdued with messages to obey government, consume and stay asleep like good little sheeple.

A drifter realizes what’s up by looking through the Hoffman sunglasses and seeing the true from of these alien controllers and their brainwashing campaign for what it really is. Tagline: “They live, we sleep.”

For 1988, the movie even had flying taser drones. So basically it’s a lot like America today (except the lizard alien part, which is debatable depending on who you ask).

Wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper played the drifter in that film, and recently he announced on his Twitter account that They Live actually wasn’t a work of fiction, but a documentary.


Directly preceding this announcement was a flurry of pro-Second Amendment tweets in direct reference to a key line in the film where the drifter walks into a bank wearing those sunglasses and says, “I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubble gum.”





Those of us who consider ourselves ‘awake’ to America’s descent into a total police state dictatorship understand these references all too well. Sadly, it can be tough to watch They Live and not flinch at the fact that, on many levels, it hits very close to home (sort of the way a charming reality TV show would).

In fact, this video of subliminal messages hidden in a 1960s-era national anthem sign-off below shows the movie may hit a little too close to home:

Oh, and in case you are curious about what Roddy had to say regarding the government being shut down this week, here you go:

      Horrible, grade-B movie, campy, predictable…

      Damn, it’s close to real life.
      Pro Wrestlers seem to have been psychologists in some ways – their stories were all the same clap-trap, but they got the fans into the story…
      Same with this movie: It’s WAY TOO CLOSE to reality. THEN, let alone now.

      And MEdia collaboration? That’s a GIVEN – and the typing there is no typo, ME-dia. All about ME ME ME – anchor or reporter, the news doesn’t matter…

    Escape from New York and Escape from LA are two John Carpenter movies depicting the future US as a police state. Complete with walls, militarized police, corrupt politicians, terrorists. (Spoiler) The best part is at the end of LA when Snake sets off an EMP that disables the entire planet’s electrical system. My hero!
    Rowdy “Hot Rod” Piper will always be my favorite pro wrestler just for that movie. John Carpenter is one of my favorite movie makers, and Kurt Russell is my favorite actor.
    Carpenter is a master of the low budget horror/sci-fi, genre. His cheesy keyboard soundtracks where the best. I could go on but if you don’t know. Then you don’t know.
