The Ambassador

Jody Pendarvis has built a UFO welcome centre in his back garden.

Jody Pendarvis is a kooky southern gentleman who has built a ramshackle UFO welcome centre in his backyard in rural Bowman, South Carolina. If aliens happen to land around Bowman, they'll be greeted by Jody, who claims he'll be able to talk to them, and his homemade alien spacecraft full of clutter. We recently flew down to Bowman to meet Jody and see the welcome centre for ourselves.
