Independence Day (also known by its promotional abbreviation ID4) was an advertised product, released in or before 1998. Part of a slogan used to promote this product was "we'll wish we were."
- In reality, Independence Day is a science fiction film that was released in 1996. The true nature of this product is never revealed in The X-Files, however. In Independence Day, a man in a satellite call center, talking on a phone, says, "Yes, ma'am, I love the The X-Files too. I hope you get to see it." The movie's plot was about an alien invasion, and featured government conspiracies centered around Roswell and Area 51. Adam Baldwin had a major supporting role in the film.
