Fox’s viral campaign for this summer’s Prometheus seems to be in full swing right now and this awesome promo is the latest to come from that. David is an 8th generation Wayland type robot, powered by Verizon apparently and you can see the clip right after the break.
Now this is what I call great viral marketing, a clip that’s made to look like any commercial you see today on TV, only this is for a robot, one that you can only find in the film Prometheus unfortunately. I mean who doesn’t want a real David around the house? I know I do, my garden needs work and he would be the perfect candidate for that unethical job. Also, after Shame, I’m sure there are loads of women out there (and even guys) that would buy a Michael Fassbender the second he becomes available, probably for stuff that’s more NC-17 if you know what I mean.
Joke aside, Prometheus is a prequel to the 1979 original Alien, directed by the same Ridley Scott and starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, and Patrick Wilson among others.
Prometheus opens June 1st in the UK and June 8th in North America.
So would you buy a David/Michael Fassbender if this promo was real?
