Watch the Full High School Performance of 'Alien' in All Its Glory
Remember that high school production of "Alien" that went viral? You can now watch the entire glorious thing on YouTube.
Back in March, the drama club at North Bergen High School in New Jersey put on a play adapting Ridley Scott's Alien that went on to go viral, getting all kinds of attention from fans of the film, as well as the film's director and star, Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver, who endorsed the production.
Until now, we've only been able to see short Twitter videos of the play filmed by parents and other attendees...tiny clips showcasing DIY facehuggers, xenomorphs, and Giger-esque sets that totally captured the look and feel of the original film. (And it was all done on a friggin' high school drama club budget. Proof that excuses are invalid.)
But a good Samaritan known only as ButtonSmasher on YouTube has uploaded a video of the entire play.
ButtonSmasher, you are now everybody's favorite person? How does it feel, honey? We love you.
Okay, shut up, V.
Behold Alien: The Play.
According to the video's description, the school most likely did a professional recording of the play, and ButtonSmasher asks that we all buy a copy and support North Bergen High School theater program once it's released.
You got it, ButtonSmasher.
ButtonSmasher, you're my boy.
I <3 ButtonSmasher.
