'IDIOTS' - A Social Commentary With Japanese Robots

iPhone, iPod, iPad, iTune...iDiot? This brilliant video from the people at Big Lazy Robot VFX will make you feel like a bit of a wally for spending all of your time on your gadgets. It's a brilliant, tongue-in-cheek social commentary using real Japanese model robots and, according to its makers, you should not feel offended.

 

"Yes, our happiness is based on things we don't need and governed by entities we don't control, so what? Sit down and turn on the TV!..." says the description. "Don't take the message to seriously. This is a promo video we've done to laugh at ourselves. We've all got an i-Diot inside and it's so fun!"

 

Indeed. Considering you're reading this on the internet and you probably found it via social media, there are enough cameos in here to mean that you're going to recognize a little bit of yourself in one of these little robots. Personally, these little guys have helped me realize I spend far too much time looking at cat pictures....but will I stop? No. Will I continue to laugh at animals trying to be people? YES!
