Another Prometheus viral campaign ad featuring Michael Fassbender's David

Apr. 17, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The PROMETHEUS viral campaign is continuing its trajectory towards the film's premiere with a new ad featuring Michael Fassbender's android character, David.  The ad, titled "Happy birthday, David," showcases the human-like qualities of an android, in particular the David model.  Fassbender sells it perfectly, coming off as an android utterly convinced of his relatable human qualities.

Wish David a happy birthday:

"I can also go batshit crazy and vomit milk all over the place." 

I think they forgot that line.  It's cool, Fox.  Nodobdy's perfect. 

I always thought the android aspect of the ALIEN films added another layer to the story and created a heavy dose of tension, as you were never quite sure how well they'd hold up.  They're just too unpredictable.  It's another take on humans relying too much on technology (i.e. the androids) and finding that it gets out of control. We should've stopped at microwaves and iPods.

Judging from the trailers thus far with Fassbender dancing around and looking downright creepy in every scene, I get the feeling that he's not going to be very reliable to his human counterparts on thier mission.  Just a hunch.

PROMETHEUS lands on June 8, 2012

Extra Tidbit: Lance Henrikson (Bishop) being ripped in half in Aliens was one of the defining moments of my "movie" childhood. Nothing would ever be the same. Also, I couldn't drink milk for a week after seeing it.

I am very excited about this movie!

Does anyone else get a Kubrick vibe from that video?

That's interesting. Makes me wonder if Ridley Scott had anything to do with naming the characters, or if the script writer did it of his own accord. Because I'm pretty sure Ridley Scott is distancing Prometheus from Alien Resurrection.

Extra tidbit: Same here. I was 6 and couldn't understand why there was so much milk.

Indeed, I think David will become the Space Jockey

And I have a feeling it will be rather sad, because I don't think he'll be villainous at the start of the film.

Bilbo Go Koo-Koo

It would appear, Ripley is not very precious at all.

Relax, Bilb. Jeez.

Brilliant

That was one of the creepiest things I have ever seen. I'd totally watch a version of Pinocchio with Michael Fassbender's David as the lead.

Now all I need is a Rosario Dawson 8 and I'm good to go!

In all seriousness though, I'd be terrified having an android like him in my general vicinity. If something goes wrong, you won't see him coming and he can overpower you. Could you imagine having a child or animal alone with David? Ummm....nope.

I don't see this future for us, too unpredictable.
