Cobra Commander Is Waiting to Talk to You

0


Last Thursday I told you guys about Cobra Takeover, a blog where the infamous leader of Cobra documents his experiences talking to (or not talking to) random people on ChatRoulette.com who are generally not at all prepared to suddenly find themselves talking to Cobra Commander. If you haven’t checked out the blog yet, I still highly recommend it, but the above video documents many chatters’ reactions to meeting Cobra Commander online and vice versa, and it’s outstanding. Enjoy.

About Author

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.
