As expected, 20th Century Fox have released the full viral video for their Meet Walter campaign, along with a viral website which allows you to "reserve your own Walter unit" by syncing up with Facebook. What this exactly means we're unsure, but the site also comes with an interactive menu, detailing some of Walter's core features.
The video itself contains small disclaimer text, insinuating that Walter "imprints" on whoever he interviews with and / or serves. This prompts a "no refunds" statement by Weyland-Yutani, as it seems each Walter unit is capable of developing an alternate personality based on who they "imprint" on and associate with.
Michael Fassbender once again portrays the latest in Weyland-Yutani robotic engineering and does a stellar job doing so. Check out the full video below and visit MeetWalter.com to check out the website!
The introduction gives us a strange "Legion" vibe, the way Walter says "We are Walter". During Prometheus' viral marketing, when David was introduced, and asked what his name was, David's response was very personal - simply "David". I wonder what this change of awareness means for the new Walter iteration? Let us know your thoughts below!
