The Truth is Out There…At Least When it Comes to the Slingbox

Well, the guy you see as noted is Blake Krikorian, the inventor of the Slingbox, co-founder/CEO of Sling Media, a board member of partner Amazon and now, a thespian.

Here, Springer meets with his outerworld mates on what looks like a throwaway set piece from Ridley Scott‘s 1979 classic Alien. As you’ll see, he prefers getting home TV through the interwebs on his computer or mobile phone over reversing global warming. Well, at least he suffers some seemingly painful consequences for his decision, but we appreciate his sacrifice.
