Feel the erotic union of man and shavebot

In the new DDB spot for Philips’ RoboSkin moisturizing shaving system, a dude hits the shower with a sexy feminine robot, which proceeds to give him a shave. And while Shavebot might be a wet dream for Bender or C-3PO, the commercial (complete with Kraftwerk-esque techno soundtrack) sends shivers down my all-too-human spine. As I’ve explained before, robots would gladly kill us all to establish a techno-utopia. They actually plan to keep Steve Jobs alive forever to taunt him with that little spinning wheel that pops up when Macintosh applications are about to crash. It’s their idea of a joke. And just think how the revolution will go down if a nation of “grooming robots” turned on us in the shower. Look closely at her lips, I think she’s singing, “Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true…”
