Just in the time for the "Prometheus" release, Joel McHale delivers his take on the sci-fi movie. In the latest episode of his E! weekly series "The Soup", the comedian spoofs a viral video which was released back in April to promote the film featuring Michael Fassbender as android David.

Standing in between the picture of Khloe Kardashian's and Kim Kardashian's face, the Jeff Winger of "Community" plays a robotic show host named Joel who claims he can do anything, but not a lot before drinking scotch. When explaining himself, Joel proudly says he can tell offensive, racist, sexist and stupid jokes.

On what he thinks, Joel asnwers, "I think about anything," before mentioning Ryan Seacrest, "Hillbilly Handfishin' " and Kardashians. When asked what makes him sad, he gives the same examples. Toward the end of the clip, a voiceover uses the words "handsome, funny, good looking, empty" to describe the robot.

"Prometheus" itself is a film about a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

Directed by Ridley Scott, the thriller is going to hit theaters across the nation on June 8.
