Near the end of the video, you can see alien-looking creature getting caught up in the output from the ROV thrusters. The video has not been altered and was taken off the East coast of Africa.

This mysterious creature is definitely the closest living creature on earth to being an actual alien.

Marine biologist Bill Austin has suggested it is likely a comb jelly (ctenophore). George Matsumoto, a ctenophore (comb jelly) expert at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Research institute identified it as a lobate ctenophoreof the Lampocteis genus.
