MK12's Cowboys & Aliens?

In 2007, I attended the second Graphika Manila, a multimedia (design) conference held in the Philippines.

Among the presentations was from MK12, which is a design company based in Kansas City in the U.S. They premiered the amazing and amusing video production titled "History of America" where cowboys and astronauts battled it out for... I don't remember what about.

Today, I discovered Cowboys & Aliens, a movie slated for release in 2011 (saw it on the MoviePostersDB site).

Now, I'm just wondering if "History of America" had somehow inspired Jon Favreau with the movie.

(On further research, however, I discovered that MK12 had nothing to do with it. The original Cowboys & Aliens was instead a comic book from Platinum Studios).
