This Hilarious Animated Parody Is Exactly How Prometheus Should Have Ended

By Sam Gibbs on at

Ah Prometheus. It just couldn't quite live up to the hype, and had a load of really weird, what-the-hell moments that just seemed a bit half-arsed to me. Still, a less-than-bullet-proof script has opened the door to a flood of really funny parodies, and this is one of the very best.

I'll say this right now -- this thing is full of spoilers, so if you haven't actually seen Prometheus and you want to, don't watch the video above, OK? For the rest of us, enjoy.

I have to admit, that I totally didn't catch how the mapping guy got lost; I was still well and truly in suspended disbelief at that moment. I mean thinking about it now, surely he had some sort of map after his scanning orbs had flown about the place? Anyway, if you'd like to see precisely why the scientists acted like complete imbeciles in Prometheus, check out the earlier Weyland Corp Scientist Training video. [HISHE via Gizmodo Australia]
