Animated Prometheus Parody Exploits Film's Flaws For Comedy Gold

Prometheus may have had its day, but the parodies continue to come and will do so for some time. Well, until Ridley Scott decides to crank out another prequel and/or sequel. This one, courtesy of How It Should Have Ended (HISHE), examines a number of plot holes in the film’s less than bullet-proof script, while also reinventing a few key scenes for comedic purposes.

To be honest, it’s not as hilarious as the scientist training video we saw earlier this year, but it did highlight a couple of inconsistencies I didn’t pick up on earlier, including how exactly two of the ship’s crew members managed to lose their way, despite one of them being an expert in avoiding such a situation.

Sufficed to say, the video is spoiler central, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, consider this a warning.
