The future Blade Runner warned us about might already be here.
All right, so that’s probably overstating the case a bit. But there is definitely something uncanny about how well the new Google Assistant ad syncs up with the Blade Runner 2049 trailer – which, as a reminder, is the sequel to a movie about a dystopian future teeming with sentient A.I.
Don’t believe us? Check out this video. It’s some Dark Side of the Rainbow-level synchronicity.
I just laid the audio from the Blade Runner 2049 trailer to the new Google Assistant ad.
I’m scared. Literally no extra editing involved 😳 pic.twitter.com/5lwUWqxFml

Mashable actually checked to see if Spencer Chen was telling the truth, and he is. That really is the uncut footage from the Google Assistant ad, and that really is the unedited audio straight from the most recent Blade Runner 2049 trailer.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to unplug and hide from our Google Home for a bit until we’re ready to process Assistant’s apparent love of Blade Runner.
