Holy fuck. After about a minute, when I thought things were getting a little too weird, things suddenly got really weird and I couldn’t turn my head. Now, supposedly this is a Spanish game show — any Topless Roboteers in foreign lands who can help us with this would be greatly appreciated — but why the fantasy bent? Moreover, why the frog licking? The dancing midgets? What’s with the weird orc guy who prances about? Is that girl crying? I think I’m going to grab a bottle of scotch +4 and see if I can make a saving throw to forget this little nightmare.
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.
