A fun animated short about a guy with the most boring job in the Alien universe

For those who don't while away their years in hypersleep (or get themselves killed by xenomorphs), working on a Weyland-Yutani contract can be pretty dull. E.T.A. a brief animated short directed by Henrik Bjerregaard Clausen and produced by Junk, introduces us to Marvin, a bleary-eyed technician on a not-so-state-of-the-art barge. Be sure to watch all the way to the end.

Actually I'm not so sure he's working for Weyland-Yutani because he's got an Omni Consumer Products logo on his baseball cap. Bet he has a Tyrell Corporation Jacket hanging in the back of the control cabin someplace too. Ancillary merchandising, that turns us all into unwitting advertisers for companies, exists in the future too.
