The Real Reason We Haven't Sent Men Back To The Moon.


No, this is not footage from the Chinese Moon rover, this is a commercial…

A FAKE commercial by Visual effects studio Cinesite.  Rather than make a creature animation reel, this company used their skills to make a fake commercial showing off how badass a CG monster they could make as it crunches Astronauts up like tin cans.

This video is hilarious, but also depressing.  It makes me sad that we haven’t actually sent a crew to the Moon since December 1972 and that we don’t have any REAL HD video our guys bouncing around up there.  It’s crazy to believe nobody has ever been filmed on the moon in digital HD.
