'Space Invaders in Real Life' Will Have You Grabbing Atari Controllers

The unthinkable has happened and now we all have to grab our Atari controllers and defend Earth, or at least that's the premise of this 'Space Invaders in Real Life' video.

The popular, often ported, video game has been re-imagined with impressive graphics in this new parody video by Jeremiah Warren. An aspiring filmmaker, Warren also casted himself as the defender of Earth as he mans up, puts on his Aviators and grabs a retro Atari controller to shoot down the fiendish alien invasion. Fans of Futurama will remember that a similar idea was done on the show, with the protagonist Fry utilizing his arcade gaming ability to conquer the alien threat, but this is truly the first time anyone has executed this idea with live actors and with such panache.

A possible sequel to 'Space Invaders in Real Life' may be coming soon as the status of the mother ship remains unknown.
