Last week’s MCV Awards got off to a fantastic start as the event’s guests arrived in style… being delivered to the venue by none other than aliens.
The opening video was filmed on the night as attendees entered the Lancaster London Hotel, and was put together in time for the awards ceremony just hours later.
The energetic short features the guests coming into the venue in slow motion to the docile tones of dubstep.
Last year’s opening video saw the games industry squaring off against the apocalypse.
Check out the video below:
