TED Talk 2023: Prometheus Promotional Video

My name is Subhorup Dasgupta, and if you will indulge me, I would like to change the world.

Originally conceived as a prequel to Aliens, the new sci-fi offering from Ridley Scott - Prometheus - contains an interesting use of social media marketing that I thought I would share with my readers. I am not so sure if this is a promotion for the already popular TED talks, or a way to use the TED popularity to promote the film, but it seems to work. The video is pretty much looking at going viral, given the online community's love for all things T, E, and D. The promo itself is quite captivating, and it is nice to get a sneak peak at what the film might be like.

Disclaimer: This is not a promotion, just something I found and liked and thought of sharing with all of you. This is not an indicator that the film might be any good either, so don't jump me, just indulge me!
