The Atacama Humanoid Mummy

Why do they expend so much time and money on these subjects? Is it really about the money?
With tools we now have at hand, why are we still scratching our heads about such things?

The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

The "5 inch alien" was a prop for a 2013 movie and book by Stephen Greer (Sirius ). He is hosting your clip. He makes a new "woo" movie every two or so years for profit.

There is already a large debunk thread on the "5 inch alien".

So, it looks like his formula is meticulous work until the payoff comes. Very clever. Lame claims are too easy to dismiss, so build up on the pseudoscience to make it appear more legitimate.

I wasn't aware of this tactic. Makes our job as skeptics a bit harder.
