Today, Splitsider has the dubious honor of premiering the third and most recent episode of Modern Aliens: A Documentary Periodical, written and directed by Jordan Jaffe and a harbinger of worldwide doom.
Utilizing a clever method of packaging comedy and news in a way that’s not just a desk piece (no disrespect to all the very solid desk pieces happening out there), Jaffe orients each episode of Modern Aliens around a batshit crazy event that has actually occurred in our true, not made up, totally real news cycle. Onto that boilerplate, he imposes mockumentary narration and interviews to support the idea that each headline he chooses to highlight is, in fact, evidence of alien intervention in our modern political world.
It would be funny, if it wasn’t so plausible.
Episode #1, “Aliens and the 2016 Election”
Episode #2, “The Bowling Green Alien Massacre”
Episode 3 “The Abduction of Tomi Lahren”
