Today, 4/26, is being hailed as “Alien Day” because LV-426 is the fictional name of the Alien homeworld. Alien is one of my all-time favorite movies and Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley remains one of the most bad-ass female protagonists of cinema history. Despite this, Reebok released it’s 426 limited edition Alien shoes based on her footwear only in men’s sizes. Really, dudes?
That’s not stopping plenty of people in Brooklyn from celebrating Alien Day with events such as discounted Alien-inspired prints at Williamsburg’s Bottleneck Gallery and a celebration/screening at Syndicated BK tonight at 10.
But dog GIFs are my favorite way to commemorate any fake holiday, so enjoy.
