Two friends narrate a scene that starts with them seeing an alien ship in the air circling around them. What do they do next? They try their best to save themselves as well as the audience by taking us on a “Guide to Surviving an Alien Invasion.” In a series of vignettes, the two friends show the audience a slew of different ways that they could survive this invasion. With a lot of energy, laughs, and interesting situations the story quickly goes from zero to one hundred. By the end of the scene we have had: a ship hijacked, aliens taken hostage, an alien friendship develop, a scene reminiscent of Rambo, video games, and besties. What more could you want from a survival guide? Do they save us all from being eaten alive by our alien enemies or like any other alien movie do they get eaten or dragged onto an alien spaceship never to be seen again? With the imagination of these two friends absolutely anything is possible.
