Lol, these things swing, don't they?
Like when everyone got obsessed with Twilight, everyone wanted to watch or read vampire things (or actually be a vampire, which is a bit creepy but
whatever floats their boat, y'know).
Aliens could be next, and then the elite (which of course we're all part of just by being on ATS) will be cast out (again) by not saying that aliens
are stupid/don't exist, but instead 'I've always liked aliens I saw E.T.'. Then we'll say 'well name more than 3 films then!' and they won't
be able to.
I dunno if you got it anywhere else, but in the UK there was a huge hype over Paul which led to the cinema ID'ing me (someone much older than 15, but
with a brace) to get into the film. And I'm not sure why... For some reason aliens have become cool to kids. Aliens or Simon Pegg/Nick Frost. But
I've always found them cool anyway...
I think it's just if 'popular' people make films or songs or whatever about something, then the sheep jump on the trailer that transports sheep and
end up creating a hype before they get bored and move on to something else. It never lasts long, to be honest. Unless, like, there is more than one in
the series... Like Twilight... So the hype returns when a new film comes out.
It's swings and roundabouts in pop-culture.
Never mind. We'll go back to being the nerds again soon, I'm sure.
