TED 2023 – Prometheus Goes Viral

Marketing for Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi production is ramping up as we get closer to its global release. In this brand new viral we see visionary industrialist, Peter Weyland (played by Guy Pierce) doing his best John Hammond impression as he address TED. For the curious, “TED” stands for “Technology Entertainment and Design” and is a real organisation that hosts lectures showcasing “Ideas worth spreading,” sorry if you thought I was talking about Father Ted.

The clip is very cool and further adds to the evidence suggesting that Prometheus will be something very special. Just so long as Mr Weyland remembers that it’s all fun and games until somebody gets eaten by a T-Rex Alien.

Home Video Director’s Commentary

 

Most of us have a tonne of home videos sitting around at home and John & Richard Ramsey are no different. What sets these two brothers apart from the rest of us however is that one day they decided to break out some of those old videos and record a DVD style commentary over the top. The result is painfully funny.

I’m still trying to find a regular feature to fill the Fridays slot now that Monsieur Poppaleux has met his demise. I’ll keep you all posted on how that goes.

Little Brother Dance Bomb May be the Funniest Thing Ever

 

It’s not often that a viral video manages to make me literally cry with laughter but this one somehow achieved it. Whether it’s the obliviousness of the video’s poor victim, the creativity of the perpetrator or the grim demise that he may or may not have suffered moments after the camera stopped rolling, this killed me.

BTB Film: From Tangy Cheese With Love

This is another silly short that Paul and I made a few years ago as a viral for a certain corn based snack (other nachos are available). It’s pretty basic but it is the only film we’ve ever made that can be said to include Crisp Ninjas. I’ll start posting up some of the horror films over the next few weeks as there seems to be a fair bit of interest in them at the moment.

Off to lovely Margate now to see The Devil’s Fork get its first UK screening. It is cold so I shall take my splendid hat.
