A new viral video has been released titled “Happy Birthday David,” showing Michael Fassbender as android David. (Popular name in the robot world! What is it with androids being called David in sci-fi films? First AI: Artificial Intelligence now Prometheus)
The video shows an promotional advertisement for Weyland Industries, with David explaining what he as an android can do, and why he is of use to the human race – telling us in a calm emotionless voice; “I can carry out directives that my human counterparts might find distressing or unethical.” Quite chilling really.
A poster has also been released showing Fassbender’s David on an advertisement poster for Weyland Industries.
Prometheus is released in Cinema’s on June 1 2012
