Ridley Scott just dropped some pretty cool viral marketing for Prometheus at this years TED Conference: an unhinged TED talk in which Guy Pearce as Peter Weyland, head of the Weyland corporation makes his first ever appearance.


From TED:
Peter Weyland has been a magnet for controversy since he announced his intent to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system by the end of the decade.

Whether challenging the ethical boundaries of medicine with nanotechnology or going toe to toe with the Vatican itself on the issue of gene-therapy sterilization, Sir Peter prides himself on his motto, “If we can, we must.” After a three year media blackout, Weyland has finally emerged to reveal where he’s heading next. Wherever that may be, we will most certainly want to follow.

Interesting to finally meet Weyland. The vid reminds me of an Apple convention. :) "If we can, we must"...the words of tyranny.

Ridley is still holding my interest!
