Ingenious Parody Video Shows Boston Dynamics-Type Robot Fighting Human Handlers

If you've ever fantasized about seeing one of those faceless DARPA-funded robots go berzerk, well, look no further. The geniuses at Corridor Digital, a Los Angeles-based digital video effects company, have produced a parody video for "Bosstown Dynamics" showing what might happen if a robot got sick of performing tedious, repetitive tasks or having to do backflips all day long. If science fiction has taught us anything, it's that disaffected robots are not conducive to safe, productive workplaces.


The video went viral shortly after a Russian Twitter user posted a trimmed version of the video (which has since been removed from the Tweet), sparking a storm of pointless controversy from people who didn't realize that what they were watching was a parody.










By the time CNN and other outlets picked up the story, Corridor Video had already busied itself by posting links to the original video, which includes some behind the scenes footage (Spoiler Alert: no robots were actually harmed during the making of this video). That said, it's our position that the real story here isn't about robots, but rather about human gullibility.
