Opening the pod bay doors…OF LOVE.

HAL 9000Another silent movie concoction for you (because what it’s spoofing is also silent), it’s time for a True ad spoof that’s maybe, just maybe, a little more universal than Burchuss. 😆 (I’d say Burchuss is something only my friends get, but I’d put good money on the table and bet that at least a third of my friends are like “What? Little orange stuffed animal from space? What!?“) With that in mind, here’s a new one shot late Sunday night at my own desk in near-total darkness. Hey, admit it, if you owned a HAL 9000 prop, you’d do this too. Click here to see.

Couple of shout-outs: thanks to the folks behind the alarmingly accurate 2001 screen saver (free download from The Hal Project) and the simply astounding Celestia (free download here), which are what you see on the screens, giving the whole thing as much 2001 authenticity as I can muster on zero budget at 11:30pm on a Sunday night. If anyone’s really interested, I can do a little piece later on just how crappily I threw the whole thing together. 😛

  1. OOOOKayyy…looks to me like someone has wayyyy too much time on their hands.

    BTW, don’t know if you’re aware of this, but I’ve been to’s wire…

    It’s official…the third season of the noew Doctor Who will air sometime in July.

    This may not be the most appropiate place to mention this, but I thought that you ought to know.

  2. Total production time on this puppy was, at most, half an hour. Hey, I’ve got a template now, and by God I’m gonna use it. 😛
