The David-8 viral video remains one of the greatest pieces of movie marketing seen all year long. The introduction of Michael Fassbender's "Prometheus" android was touching, amusing and awe-inspiring all at once. It was also ripe for parody—and that parody has finally arrived.

Joel McHale, who recently starred in a very different parody for the MTV Movie Awards, makes his introduction on tonight's episode of The Soup as Joel 8, an eighth generation robotic clip show host: he's handsome, funny, handsome, good looking, and empty.

Among the things he can do: he can play "Hungry, Hungry Hippos" by himself, he can tell jokes his human clip show host counterparts might find offensive, racist, sexist or stupid, and … well, not much else really, not until after his morning meeting with scotch.

Meet Joel-8 in the video below.

Oliver Cooper

Hooray for Movie Awards season and the cutthroat competition between this year's very deserving group of nominees! And although the majority of the nominations were snagged by some popular wizards, bridesmaids and tributes, there is plenty of Movie Awards love and Golden Popcorn to go around. Kinda.

Speaking of Movie Awards love, we have to give it up to first-time nominee Oliver Cooper for putting together this very clever campaign video and Facebook page.

"These are the nominees for Best Onscreen Dirtbag, but only one of them has a proven track record as a douchebag," the ad begins. "He's been called a crude, pushy creep, and 'the most annoying movie character since Jar Jar Binks.'"

The Campaign

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis are not playing nice in "The Campaign," and their latest political ads are showing just that.

Instead of first releasing a trailer for the movie, the folks behind Jay Roach's latest film are opting to play up the flick like the epic showdown it promises to be. "The Campaign" is appropriately about the competing campaigns between two rival politicians—Ferrell and Galifianakis—seeking a South Carolina congressional seat.

The movie's Facebook page is up and running, and the competitors -- Cam Brady and Marty Huggins -- have their own personal pages featuring the previously mentioned ads. We're definitely torn as to who deserves our vote.

Tenacious D

When you think about a Tenacious D music video, a few things come to mind. There will likely be some fantasy elements like in the devil in "Tribute." You could also probably bet on a sword showing up, like in the "Lord of the Rings"-inspired "Wonderboy" video.

For their latest video effort, "Rize of the Fenix," the D has thrown just about everything in the repertoire together to make the ultimate special effects video experience.

Scoop up the puddle on the floor that used to be your brain, and click after the jump to see the entire video.

When joining a fan-loved franchise like "Star Trek," there's a certain amount of responsibility that goes along with it. It's widely assumed that you'll have to do your research, watch the old television series and burn through the Shatner movies.

Benedict Cumberbatch has a different approach.

When Cumberbatch sat down with MTV News' Josh Horowitz to talk about the upcoming season of "Sherlock," he was put to the test and attempted to answer some "Trek" trivia. Let's just say that if this were a real test, he may probably wouldn't have passed. How is he supposed to handle to the Kobayashi Maru?

What's a sure-fire way to have "Saturday Night Live's" "Laser Cats" sketch continue to be hilarious? Add Steven Spielberg to the mix.

Andy Samberg, Bill Hader and the team behind "SNL's" Digital Shorts managed to land the acclaimed director to come on the show and help pitch "Laser Cats 7" to their producer, Lorne Michaels. Yes, it is as amazing as it sounds.

The video they present to Michaels is chock full of references to Speilberg's previous work. There's an alien named E.A.T., a Tyrannosaurus Cat and even a "The Terminal" nod for good measure.

Once in a generation, there is born a talent so great, so astounding, that it cannot be stopped. When I think back on the pantheon of actors in the world, one name tops my list...

Zane. Billy Zane.

The bad boy baldy has played some of the most crucial and instrumental roles in the great rolodex of film, gifting us with unforgettable moments that have warmed viewers' tender hearts on the coldest of nights.

With "Titanic" back in theaters, my mind is not on Leo and Kate (sorry Jack, I totally let go), but on the most inZane man on the planet. In honor of the return of his most iconic role to date, I present to you, the top five greatest Billy Zane moments ever captured on film.

Schwarzenegger

Sometimes words are so beautifully spoken that to supplement them with commentary would mean doing an injustice to the orator's original brilliance.

That is not the case with Arnold Schwarzenegger's interview with ComingSoon.net about the upcoming "Twins" sequel, "Triplets." The quote is so perfect, so unintentionally hilarious that we need to present it here in a new segment we call, "Arnold Schwarzenegger Explains the Joke."

"I would love to do another 'Twins,'" Schwarzenegger said when asked if there were any past characters he'd like to revist. "As a matter of fact, we've been talking about doing one and it's called 'Triplets.' I'd find somebody like Eddie Murphy or someone that people would say, 'How does that happen, medically speaking?' and, 'Physically, there’s no way!' Then, somehow, we would explain it. That would be hilarious with what we know about someone like him."

From Aspen with love, a true blue "Dumb and Dumber" sequel is actually happening! Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are back on board with the Farrelly Brothers for another round of stupid mayhem, and to say we're pumped over here is a pretty big understatement.

In fact, the MTV Movies team is so jazzed by the impending return of Harry and Lloyd that we couldn't help ourselves from conjuring up some sequel ideas, "Anchorman" style. Embrace your inner idiot with us after the jump!

There are few songs more iconic than Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." It's one of those songs you can sing in the shower when you think no one's home or yell with friends at a bar on Friday night.

Apparently, it's also a great song to belt in the back of a cop car after being arrested for a DUI. At least, that's what Canadian Robert Wilkinson thought. A YouTube video of the incident recently went viral, but the song isn't a stranger to cars. Remember Wayne's World? (Who are we kidding, how could you forget?) Wayne and Garth also sing a hilarious rendition of the song while driving down the street.

So, who sang it better and which will be remembered? Or should everyone stick to the original Queen version from now on? Watch them after the jump and let us know which you think is the most classic rendition.
