Mason wakes up early on Christmas morning. He patiently waits for his stupid sleeping family to get up, so he can open his gifts. Mason tears the wrapping off a tall, thin box…
“NINJAGOS!” Mason screams in sharp pitched delight. There’s a clearance sticker on the box, because the movie was a box office disappointment. Santa picked up this cherished gift at the Dollar Store on deeeeep discount.
Learning that it’s fun and rewarding to skewer authority figures, Mason grows up to become a wealthy and surprisingly bitter late night comedy writer. Years later, Mason purchases the rights to ALF and adapts the character for the US Military as a deadly military drone. The Christmas gift he received when he was 7 altered the course of Mason’s life forever.
