Meet Joel, Your 'The Soup' Android Host
Introducing Joel 8, your scotch-drinking, android clip-show host… Ridley Scott's Prometheus invades theaters this weekend, and on tonight's episode of The Soup, funnyman Joel McHale spoofs the hugely anticipated film's clever viral campaign introduction of David 8, the character played by Michael Fassbender. Watch and chuckle…
"I can watch 70 straight hours of Duck Dynasty without setting myself on fire," declares a monotone Joel.
The David 8 video for Prometheus displayed the amazing capabilities of "the next generation Weyland robot," in the grand tradition of Ash, Bishop and Annalee Call from the Alien quadrilogy. The "Joel 8" spoof gets all the details right, with just the right dash of Soup in-jokes featuring Ryan Seacrest, Hillbilly Handfishin' and the Kardashians.
