“We met Jack during our holiday. He was a laid back 80 year old with an unforgettable voice and wicked sense of humour. We spent an evening together with his wife Alice drinking Blue Moons at a hotel bar. The next day he took us on a ride across Tutuila Island.”

“A passing comment we made about the NASA Mars project annoyed him, and it triggered him to tell us a tale of how the moon landing was fake.”

“So here is THE TRIP. The story of the man behind the biggest hoax of the 20th century. It’s a tale that could easily be the fourth part to Alan Pakula’s Conspiracy Trilogy.”

“And Jack… wherever you are now we hope you are fine and that the ‘Powers That Be’ leave you alone. This is for you. We did what you asked…”spread this story on fuckin iphones, mephones, youphones. Let people know”. So we did.” Kissinger Twins
