    That's the same robot from Late Night with Conan O'Brien's robot on the toilet sketch.

    Far-fetched? This is too spooky!
    On a RU-clip channel called Prophecy Watchers, author and film producer Steve Quayle talks about artificial intelligence with host Gary Stearman of Stearman aircraft Fame.
    Can evil possess technology? They say truth is Stranger Than Fiction. I think you better watch that program.

    This is my all-time favorite SNL commercial, and that's saying something, given the history of great ones.

    Watch carefully. There's a point where Sam Waterston is trying not to crack up.

    I don't blame em for making this. After all, only a few years prior the documentary called Terminator 2: Judgment Day had come out, and people hadn't quite comprehended still that killer robots are here, both then, and now.

    That's not a robot taking your prescription meds, its your grandchild with his noise cancelling headphones taking your percocet and xanax.

    Look how much they love their insurance providers they constantly have to shop around for incase random things happen they don't normally expect.

    Robots is the stand in word for when your father or grandfather says "Negroes, immigrants, Democrats" or mixture of all 3 "those people in the city".

    Sam Waterston said he read this as quickly as possible and when asked why he said that any celebrity doing this commercial was desperate for the money and wanted to get it over with as soon as possible

    No, they're not coming for you, they're coming for your job. $4 per month to be insured from that is a real bargain.

      Old Glory Insurance Robot Attack Coverage Plans A, B and C* do not cover expenses accrued from loss of employment due to outsourcing of work to robotic entities or intelligence of any type; including (but not limited to) cyborgs, robots, automatons, androids, sexbots, AI mannequins, etc.

    The previous versions of this online (Hulu and older RU-clip clip) did not have the line: it's a friendly robot... This time.

    Looks like the Robot in the Conan running character, Robot on the Toilet. It was NBC, so they probably used the same Robot suit from the costume dept.

    Yes, it was a funny Ad, but has a deeper meaning now. Insurance companies can defraud honest people, especially older Americans. Beware.

      Not to mention we are much closer to having killer robots with no compassion whatsoever and no ability to disobey the most immoral order.

  • AfroRyan
    AfroRyan 2 months ago +50

    $4 a month? Not in today's economy. You'd be lucky to find robot insurance for under $30 a month now, and that would only help against the friendly ones that only need a couple pills for fuel a week. Boy how the times have changed.

      Right? Crazy...My personal health insurance with Blue Cross/Blue Shield is nearly $700 a month. Might as well go and throw the Robot coverage in there!

    Makes me recall the Magnus, Robot Fighter comics of my long ago youth; especially as this first aired in '95.

      Patty J. Ayers Whats disturbing about old people getting helped? Human or robot, if it works, who cares? Nobodys job is being taken as robots arent anywhere near as useful as a human.

    I remember the season this first aired - they would air this ad over and over (I think they'd gone over budget the previous season). Luckily this was a fun ad, with a good guest cast, and a wonderful comic turn from Sam Waterston.

    But, if enough people (one) stumble upon this, it will be pulled.
