Anyone else noticed a little detail? Ridley does follow the old alphabetical android naming tradition from the series:

Ash
Bishop
Call
David

 ;D

This one that ikarop just posted about :)

Amazing:

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.

EDIT: Ohhh, that post was talking about the video I just watched...I thought it was about something different. Nevermind :-\

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'd hardy call this vid "Truly spectacular", but i do love the touch of the white fluid that starts to flow down the IV, just like the Ash and Bishop droids.

This is the first time we've heard Fassbender as David.  He's playing the part with the same accent he used for his role in 'Inglourious Basterds'.

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.

Great as a viral ad, but if that were a real advertisement for a real product, it would be terrible.

Disturb and terrify the shit out of our customers! :laugh:

I don't think Ridley had anything to do with the naming of the androids. It's more than likely the writers, considering each Alien film has had a different director.

Maybe according to the present demographic, but 60 years from now people would have probably been exposed to so many androids that that commercial would be amazing to them.

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