Surreal Viral Clip For Ridley Scott’s The Counselor Recalls The Marketing Of Prometheus

This new ‘viral’ clip, which premiered at GQ, for Ridley Scott’s The Counselor sees Michael Fassbender shopping for lingerie, helped by a shop assistant played by Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer.

It’s rather strange and very reminiscent of the viral marketing for Scott’s Prometheus. Particularly the short pieces, including David, that were created by Johnny Hardstaff. I would happily put a bet on this being Hardstuff, and this being the video he’s referring to on his site as Special Project #4.

Brendon has mentioned to me a couple of times that he thinks Hardstaff may end up directing the Prometheus sequel. Based on the work that Hardstaff has done so far I’d definitely be intrigued to see what he did with Prometheus 2.

The Counselor opens in America on the 25th of October and in the UK on the 15th of November.
