See Neill Blomkamp's mysterious teaser trailer

Is it a viral video or something more exciting?

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has made a cool video for the latest iPad edition of Wired magazine and it's got every geek on the Internet wondering... why?

The video features two kids poking a weird pig-alien thing that's been rubber stamped with the words: '18.12 AGM Heartland Pat Pend USA. US Inspected And Approved.'

It's weird, it's tense, it's atmospheric, and it only lasts for 60 seconds. We just wish we knew what the bloody hell it was for.

Is it the start of an online series of shorts? Or - and this is what we're hoping for - is it the first glimpse at the brilliant Blomkamp's next project?

Watch it below and let us know what you think.

 

So, what do you think it is? Tell us below!

      Crikey. Looks awesome and unusual whatever it is. I guess in these days of viral advertising you just don't know. Advert, experiment, gag, teaser. More tension in it than 90% of the Hollywood thriller/horror output of the past five years.

      It's a GM Chicken from Jamie Oliver's farm.

      Looks like it had some sort of umbilical cord attached. Looked like a baby!?

      About as tension packed as trying to hold in a f*rt. The creature looked like a discarded prop from the SpaceBalls Alien parody.
