Meet David. Michael Fassbender’s android David makes a stunning appearance in a viral video for Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus”. The video debuted on Mashable, and the faux Weyland Industries advertisement describes David as a robot which is capable of integrating well with human beings. At one point, he faces the camera and says, “I understand human emotions although I do not feel them myself.”
David was created by the Weyland Industries, which is founded by Peter (Guy Pearce). The video itself purpose is to introduce David and celebrate the blue-eyed android’s birthday. At the end of the video, the humanoid robot expresses his gratitude for those who created him. In a way, it feels rather sanctimonious.
