Mekanism Goes 60s Sci-Fi for Holiday Card

What does this little Grindhouse-meets-Plan 9 From Outer Space faux-trailer have to do with the holiday season? Well, nothing, to be perfectly honest. But, it did afford the folks at SF-based agency Mekanism the chance to dress up in ridiculous spandex suits and have fake laser fights. If that’s not a gift from your CEO, I don’t really know what is.

Mekanistas‘ plot is a bit lost on me, but I can safely assume that after shooting wrapped, Mekanism’s employees all wore their suits out to a bar where they got pretty hammered and probably lost their blaster toys. Fuck it, it’s Christmas. Have fun while you can.
