More Terminator: Salvation commercials debuted this week, and now I’m just impressed at how they keep finding new footage to show off that keeps blowing my mind. The previous commercials have focused on John Connor and that Marcus Wright and a lot of the different robots that are busy killing humans in the future, but this commercials focuses on the classic Terminators, and how fucking badass they are. If you’re any kind of Terminator fan, this video will make liquids appear in your pants, one way or another.
Also, I want to take a quick moment to salute the late Stan Winston. He designed the Terminator back in 1984, and it is just as awesome and scary now, 25 years later, as it was then. Only someone of Winston’s talents could have designed something that would hold up so well for so long. It is truly a phenomenal feat.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
