Alien: Covenant – Weyland-Utani Corp ad introduces Walter synthetic
20th Century Fox has released a new viral video, and it’s a clever marketing for the upcoming Alien: Covenant film. It’s designed as an ad created by Weyland-Utani Corp to sell the Walter synthetic companion. The icing on the cake is the “Intelligence powered by AMD” line at the end.
Here’s a description of Walter:
Walter is the world’s most advanced synthetic companion, designed to help you achieve a better human experience. Each model is individually calibrated to serve its owner’s unique set of needs and preferences. Intelligence powered by AMD, Ryzen and Radeon.
