Via Wired magazine comes this strange video credited to District 9 director, Neill Blomkamp. A couple of dudes pull off the side of a road to investigate some gnarly, grody, dead critter they’ve found. The mutant creature is stamped with identifying marks that led slashfilm to a trademark for “AGM Heartland”. The trademark reads:
“Entertainment services by way of an online website with video, audio and textual content and images featuring characters and storylines about a fictional genetic engineering company that produces genetically engineered and altered organisms.”
So, quite possibly Blomkamp is involved in putting out a web series or feature, investigating relatives of the odd piggy/fish/hopefully-not-human beastie you’re about to see being discovered. What I find more disturbing than the actual creature is the idiot touching it with his bare hands and pulling its tongue. Dude, please tell me you have a giant bottle of hand sanitizer in the car?
I recommend you don’t watch this immediately before sitting down to dinner or right before falling asleep.
After having seen the fantastic District 9, I’m pretty sure I’d rather spend Thanksgiving looking at more of Blomkamp’s abominations than sit across from some of my bizarro-relatives (who, if they were naked, probably don’t look much different from that piggly-wiggly) so I guess I’ll just forgo the turkey and keep on swimming in the beautiful Caribbean.
