Neill Blomkamp, the director behind science-fiction blockbusters 'District 9,' 'Elysium' and the upcoming 'Alien' remake, has released something more topical in nature on his YouTube channel 'OatsStudio.' In response to the recent US presidential election, the South African director has created two short, satirical videos imagining what President-elect Donald Trump's official government transports might look like.

Neill Blomkamp's two videos, entitled 'Presidential Motorcade' and 'Air Force One,' depict those eponymous presidential transports. Each fictional mode of transportation teases President-elect Trump's well-known penchant for extreme opulence. For instance, Blomkamp's Air Force One design includes what looks to be a lush jungle greenhouse throughout the cabin, and his presidential limo has an absurd golden angel sculpture jutting out like the figurehead of a marine vessel.
