Packaging by far is one of the most wasteful things around. That, and also the loud combination of graphics and colors that are supposed to attract the consumer to these products. In this set, the people over at Antrepo stripped the packaging of its loud colors and graphics, leaving it bareboned, down to just the essentials.

According to Bugarach’s mayor, there are “sacred mountains” in the village with an “alien garage” where aliens wait underground for the world to end. So those in the village will get a shot at survival. And here we thought aliens had better things to do, you know, like abducting cows or something. Maybe they’re doing all that to kill time.
