A glance at an alien from James Cameron's Avatar has popped up in the most unlikely of places -- a t-shirt. MarketSaw, a blog devoted to 3-D movies, snagged a photo (or the actual t-shirt itself, it's unclear which) of an official t-shirt raffled off to Avatar crew members. It bears the proud silhouette of a Na'vi and while it's not very detailed, I have to concur with CHUD's Devin Faraci that it looks far, far too much like a furry. The hype for this film is intense, and Cameron has been very vocal about the alien culture he was creating. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't a two-legged cat/elf with a bow and arrow. We can't cast judgment yet, though. It is just a t-shirt but is this what you thought the Na'vi would look like?

Incidentally, aren't official movie t-shirts were handed out to crew members for free? The set of Avatar now sounds an awful lot like a job I had at a haunted house once. It was filthy and dangerous work, and our much anticipated Halloween bonus ended up being ... a t-shirt raffle. I really hope the crew members of a James Cameron movie made off better than that!
