"Prometheus" is the New "Inception" - Parody Trailer-wise

Last week we saw a mash-up video combining the trailer of Ridley Scott's upcoming sci-fi tentpole "Prometheus," specifically its music and structure, with scenes from the Pixar classic "Wall-E." We can now officially consider the "Prometheus" parody trailer a meme, as I've now seen two other videos that repurpose old movies for videos using the style of the promos for the new "Alien" prequel. In fact, "Alien" has already been redone with a "Prometheus" parody of its own, one that adds a bit of premature criticism at the end with a spoof of the original film's tagline. The third parody I've come across is for "Spaceballs," which is rather simple. We wonder if only films set in space can qualify?
