Prometheus Viral Video: “Our Family is Growing”

Fox has released a new viral video via their official website www.weylandindustries.com. The video plays as an ad for a new line of Synthetics from Weyland Corp. and shows what appears to be Michael Fassbender as David 8. The tag line “Big things have small beginnings”, which some may remember from previous leaked material, can be heard on the video. You can download the viral here in HQ.

According to Collider.com: ” During the pic’s WonderCon panel earlier today, fans were given cards from Weyland Corp that directed them to a website and a phone number. If you call the number, an operator informs you that all Weyland Corp lines are busy, but calls your attention to a text message you’ve just received. The text message gives you a link that directs you to a truly spectacular video narrated by one of the film’s stars.

Stay tuned for more coverage on WonderCon coming soon. Thanks to movielord101 for the link.

    I can't believe I'm discussing this.  :laugh:

    But I think he probably has a "junk" that is simply incapable of erection, impotent.
    That's what the "substitute" rape was for.

    Seriously, I am not making this up, I've heard this somewhere on here before.

    I'd say the androids have genitalia. At least the later models in keeping with the phrase "virtually indistinguishable" from humans.

    And it's a safe bet the Ash unit came complete with 'a unit' considering his 'mission.' Considering the close quarters contact the crew had coming out of hyperspace and their general living conditions it would seem like a stupid move on the company to send in a secret imposter android who is also a eunuch. Worse than a eunuch ... a Ken Doll. One slip of the space boxers and it's "Game Over" for the ruse.

    Did Ash have genitals? You decide. ;)
    Thanks for that image. >:(
     :P

    Apologies.
    I heard some time ago on here that someone from production said that the idea was that he doesn't have any, and that that is the reasen for his "magazine-rape" on Ripley.

    Androids make for bad lovers.

    I've gotta agree with this. It seems it would bring words such as "stunning", "haunting", and possibly even "beautiful" to mind as opposed to terror. Especially after previous models, this one displays the pinnacle of innovation for them. As soon as I saw the video was meant to be a commercial, I tried to get myself into the mindset of somebody that far in the future, and when that happened it stuck with me in a very odd way... like an mesh between organic life and something created on an assembly line.

    What do you mean my this (highlighted) exactly?  David was the first model, Ash, Bishop and Call all came after...or do you mean earlier models of David, as stated in the Weyland timeline, which is fair enough??

    Feels kind of morbid to me. Packing a nearly living this in a bag with Styrofoam blocks lol.
    I get a very "Aperture Science" vibe from it.

    Just imagining the end of the unpacking process.

    "Hello, I am David. Could you please remove the Styrofoam blocks from my face?"
    "Thanks a bunch, pal."

    I think there will forever be something disturbing about a man shrink-wrapped in plastic suddenly moving with a quick jerk.

    But he's not a man, he's an android, and people in the future will know that and be in awe about how real it looks.

    Bottom line, I found this fascinating.

    Excellent, just excellent!

    I love the backstory they are giving the movie and the universe surrounding it. I hope these things will be available as extras on the Blu-Ray this coming fall/winter.

    Though I really can't wait to see what other videos they have in store for us.

    And that's strange, wasn't the line "big things have small beginnings" "leaked" from a reported trailer, instead of a viral video? It wouldn't make sense to have that line in the film, unless David likes to promote his own line of androids. Which I suppose, is possible, since Burke said "building better worlds" in ALIENS.

    Its plausible that there are screens in the Prometheus (or in/on other tech) that run Weyland commercials.

    I have to say I am really enjoying this viral marketing campaign they’re pushing. Between the Peter Weyland video and now the David video – it’s getting me even more excited for this goddamn movie.
