Alden Volney reimagines, extends, and generally messes with the whole Alien/Ripley legend in his video for Black Rivers' Voyager 1 - the first release by Jez and Andy Williams from Doves.

Or maybe not. The peril to the Sigourney Weaver-like heroine, as she aborts her space mission, and goes to take a very long nap, is certainly nothing to do with the late HR Giger's monster. Whatever the inspiration, this is excellent work from Alden 'night owl' Volney. He spend every night for five weeks animating this video and it's a goodie.
