Watch this promo for Futurama's return

Futurama promoBig huzzahs to reader John Geezer, who sent us a link to this fantastic promo for the upcoming new season of Futurama. The promo was created by Speed Bump Studios in an effort to get a job doing these for Comedy Central. It features a CGI version of Bender walking into a random house, drinking the owners' wine, and stealing their candlesticks. "Hello, peasants!" he yells as he walks in. Really great stuff.

Speed Bump also provides a clip showing the computer rough-draft of the CGI Bender, and an opportunity to download the Bender model (for fun only, of course). Good stuff, and a fun way to close out the week.

Yep, it's right there at the end of the video. My mistake. I'll fix the post.

I think all the disclaimers asking Fox not to sue are pretty good evidence that it's a spec ad.

Forget Futurama, what about the top 10 episodes of "South Park" hand chosen by Matt and Trey

Looks official to me Andrew. How do you know it was done on spec?

This wasn't actually created for Comedy Central, but created on spec. It's essentially a fan film. A beautifully well done one, but not an official promo.

Oh Futurama, I await your return so badly...

And, just so I can mess with every guy's mind from here on out:

Seymour from "Jurassic Bark"

I can honestly say I have not been this excited about a TV show, uh, ever. Just another year.5 or 2 or so and it's here.
