Uh…I hope your frontal lobes have healed from the assault of Japanese Thriller, because otherwise watching this Korean commercial for some kind of homemade chicken nuggets will likely give you an Alan Moore-style embolism. Sure, it starts out normal, with a broken Korean family getting ready to enjoy a meal, but then a smiling Robocop bursts from the TV, eats some of the chicken, and then carries off the family’s fridge…because…because I have no fucking clue, actually. I’ve had fever dreams that are more coherent than this commercial. Thanks to TR contributor Chris Cummins for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
