History Channel reached out to collaborate on the promo artwork for the coming season of their documentary-style series "Ancient Aliens". The show supports the ancient astronauts theory popularized by author Erich von Däniken, based on hypothetical historical evidence of past human-extraterrestrial contact.


Soon after the artwork was finished, the folks at Viceland wanted to "spoof" that design for Action Bronson's show— "Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens", alternately titled simply Action Bronson Watches Ancient Aliens. The free-form, unscripted comedy/documentary series features rapper/gourmand/world traveler Action Bronson, who sits on a couch and smokes weed with his friends, while watching Ancient Aliens.
