Mystery Video From Neill Blomkamp

Wired Magazine for the iPad included this mysterious little film that is apparently some sort of teaser by Neill Blomkamp, the director of District 9. It shows the discovery of a dead alien or unknown life form by two guys driving down a dirt road. Creepy. But why would anyone touch a dead alien?  The creature is stamped as if part of some project at a lab.  Maybe it’s about growing new life forms to feed the planet and then some of them escape.  Or some company has captured and bred aliens for food production!

Here’s a Slashfilm article that suspects it’s a teaser for an online narrative about a company doing genetic engineering.
