Branded – They Live on Acid and Advertising


YT Direktbranded

Schöner Trailer zu “Branded”, einem SciFi-Dingsbums mit irrem Plot, in dem Werbung Alienbotschaften in die Gehirne der Menschen implantieren, um das neue Schöneheitsideal der übergewichtigen Amis durchzusetzen. They Live auf Acid meets McDoof und Advertising, oder so ähnlich. Hier der Plot:

After Misha skyrockets to the top of the advertising business, a tragic mishap on the set of one of his productions torpedoes his career and he retreats into self-imposed exile. Ten years later, Misha returns to a radically changed world and finds himself plagued by visions of bizarre and terrifying creatures with the ability to influence peopleÂ’s thoughts, desires and actions. Creatures only he can see.

He soon realizes the creatures are part of a clandestine campaign unleashed by a rival advertising agency to make fat the new fabulous and create a new era of uncontrolled consumer appetite. In order to save mankind, Misha uses his own considerable marketing skills to launch an ingenious plan to try to eradicate the plague. But the corporate legions will not go down without a fight.

    Hab zuerst den Trailer angeschaut und genau das kam mit in den Sinn: “They Live auf Acid meets McDoof und Advertising”. “They Live” war hat schon sehr flach. (Dennoch ein super Film). Aber nach “The Matrix” kann man doch nicht jetzt mit so einer Story kommen. Was gar nicht passt ist das QR-Code Geflimmer. Da hättesn sie auch den Strichcode nehmen können. Wäre genauso dämlich. Ohne diesen dummen QR-Code sähe das ganze vielleicht etwas runder aus.

    Ich wette das Drehbuch wurde von drei personen geschrieben. So einem Fitness-Jogging-Deppen, einem Woldorfschüler und einem Drinnenschalträger.

    “Hey lasst uns mal einen konsumkritischen Film drehen…”

  3. Mein Senf

    Soll das eine Satire sein, oder ist das vollkommen ernst gemeint? Mal so ganz im Ernst.

  4. temper

    wieviele Verschwörungstheorien Filme gibt es eigentlich schon die auf sowas abzielen und brauch es wirklich noch mehr? und besonders sowas?

  5. Tony

    die QR codes sind wirklich etwas albern.

  6. yo

    genau, wer braucht schon QR-Codes :P

  7. Deadpool

    Von den Bildern könnte es ein schöner Paranoia/Mindfuck Film sein…vom drumherum: eher nicht..

    Die Codes stören tatsächlich und wirken schon ein wenig anachronistisch in dem Setting. Nebenbei bemerkt funktionieren sie aber. Leider linken sie recht unspektakulär nur auf Filmbilder.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
