UFO Phil, also known as Phil Hill, is a fictional comedic character portrayed by actor Rick Still.
In his fictional universe, Phil is a native of Roswell, New Mexico currently residing in Hollywood. According to Phil, he was first abducted in 1972 by aliens who implanted him with a microchip, granting him a "heightened musical talent". Subsequently, Phil writes and performs novelty songs about extraterrestrials and science fiction, and according to his website, plays every instrument heard on every one of his songs.
In 2010, Phil claimed to be working on a way to "harness free electricity from the air" and distribute it to the people of the world. This was possible, according to Phil, because of a reactor blueprint given to him by the "Good Aliens". Phil said he planned to construct his power plant at his new home on top of Pikes Peak. In January, 2011, Phil announced plans to construct a full-sized limestone pyramid, modelled after the Great Pyramid of Giza, at Alcatraz Island, as well as other pyramids atop Pikes Peak in Colorado and behind the Hollywood Sign.
In 2011, Phil announced plans for a "Concert for the Aliens" at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California to welcome the arrival of extraterrestrials, explaining that blue aliens from the Planet Zaxon would arrive on Earth to correspond with the end of the Mayan Calendar. In 2012, Phil claimed aliens from Planet Zaxon were appointing him "President of Earth."
UFO Phil's music has been played on the Dr. Demento Show. Phil is also a regular guest caller on Coast to Coast AM. He's made a studio appearance to perform one of his songs and created the program's end theme, "Listening to Coast to Coast" He has also appeared with Tom Green. In 2010, Phil appeared in the documentary film The People vs. George Lucas, that features one of Phil's songs, "Dear George Lucas".
