If you like “Ancient Aliens,” then you probably recognize Giorgio Tsoukalos’ name. If not, you’ll definitely recognize him when you see his face. He has a distinctive look: Skin that glows orange, dark hair that rises from his head in improbable curls.
Tsoukalos, who has the best job in the world, produced and appears in many episodes of the History Channel’s hit show. He travels to exotic locations around the world and poses questions for which there are no real answers. He usually tries anyway, and his default answer is “aliens.”
“Ancient Aliens” is the most speculative program on television. And nobody speculates as much as Tsoukalos, who says things such as “I don’t think that Atlantis sank; I think that Atlantis lifted off” and “It wasn’t God. It wasn’t angels. They were extraterrestrials.”
Now he’s become a full-fledged Internet meme.
A friend sent me these last night. They seem like things Tsoukalos would really say.
