This latest Prometheus viral video isn't as successful as the Michael Fassbender one from a couple of weeks ago. For one thing, it's not compelling in any deep way, and the clip's gimmick - that a "Quiet Eye" program is doing a polygraph scan on Noomi Rapace's incoming video message (in character as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw) - kind of irritated me. Maybe I'm too old for all this jazz, but I kept thinking that this is no way to watch a video message and that all of the scanning and dental records stuff should be happening quietly behind the scenes. Imagine if Google exploded into algorithms every time you image searched "Noomi Rapace Naked."
If I had to pick one “genre” of viral video that I love the most I would have to say it’s the newscast blooper. There’s just something so satisfying about seeing these perfectly coifed and well-mannered beings unravel before your eyes. Speaking of which, prepare your eyes to see one of the new reigning champs in this genre.
