By now most of you have seen the preview for Ridley Scott’s upcoming film The Martian starring Matt Damon:
Well, would you believe that this is the second film in which Damon has portrayed an astronaut abandoned on a distant planet?
It’s true. The first one? You guessed it: Interstellar! Now if this doesn’t scream “MASHUP!” I don’t know what does. But guys, here’s the thing: We all die one day and I really don’t want to spend any of my precious remaining seconds on this video. Could one of you do me a solid and shit something out?
Is it a novel idea? Nope. Is it funny? Not even a little. But someone’s going to do it, so we might as well be the ones to throw this garbage together now so we can all move on with our lives. And if that doesn’t convince you, just think of the clicks! Think of the ad revenue! Let’s make this happen team!
OK, so here’s how I see it going down:
1) We cross cut between Damon’s scenes from Interstellar and The Martian
2) We overlay Damon’s voiceover from The Martian
And that’s it! Just rip a little footage, pop it into some editing software, and presto! You’ve got yourselves a fresh steamy little turd of a viral video to dump on the masses. Don’t forget to give me partial credit! It was my brilliant idea after all. And think of me when you’re swimming in those sweet sweet views and clicks!
Oh, one more thing. While you’re at it, could you also throw the narration from The Martian trailer over some clips of Marvin the Martian? I think that could also do pretty well, but I just don’t have it in me.
Thanks so much for handling this!
