Hi again, it’s me, Jessica, queen of strange remixes, mashups, and recuts. Today I’m coming to you from our Things We Saw Today desk (it’s actually just a kid’s table in the corner, sadface) to share this recut Alien trailer, which is made to look like a comedy movie. Funny what a change in music can bring about, huh? (via Mashable)
