Attention, everyone! We have received irrefutable confirmation that there is a government conspiracy to cover up the existence of aliens and UFOs. We've seen it with our own eyes -- and now so can you, in this really strange Kodak commercial from 1996. But the real question is: Do you recognize the Academy Award-nominated actor who stars in it?

Believe it or not, that commercial stars a 25-year-old Jeremy Renner, better known today as the Oscar-nominated star of "The Hurt Locker." He's also appeared in "The Town" as well as big-budget action flicks like "The Avengers" and "The Bourne Legacy."

But in 1996, Renner was nearly unrecognizable -- instead of his signature buzzcut, he's sporting flowing, shoulder-length locks. Combined with an oversized plaid shirt and headphones around his neck, he's the definition of '90s grunge. And don't even get us started on the bizarre UFO subplot of the commercial.
But this was just the first of TV ads Renner added to his resume before hitting the big time as Jeffrey Dahmer in the 2002 movie "Dahmer." Renner also did product ads for Aquafina, Bud Light, Coors Light, and 7-Eleven.
More than 15 years later, Renner is now one of Hollywood's hottest action stars. Up next, the 42-year-old will wield a bow and arrow in "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" later this month.
As well, Renner will soon begin an entirely new adventure as a first-time father! Renner's ex-girlfriend is set to give birth to their child in February. Let's hope that his offspring inherits his or her daddy's acting skills.
