Fassbenders for Sale


Prometheus just released this new viral video — “viral” in the sense that it doesn’t mention the movie by name and because they sure would like it to go viral — which is apparently the world’s most awkward advertisement for Weyland Industries’ David android, played by Michael Fassbender. While I thought Weyland’s TED speech “viral” was a bit hokey, it was still kind of effective — this seemed like a Funny or Die parody sketch that forgot to try to be funny. I mean, you can’t start a video with a line like “What is it about robots that make them so robotic?” and not intend it be a comedy, can you? Seriously, I kept waiting for Fassbender to eat the flower or something. Thanks to Lexplex for the tip, though.
