  • Some videos are beautiful, educational masterpieces hinting at the greater nature of humanity. Yet, some videos have to be called out for what they are — human/robot propaganda! Propaganda to make people think robots are safe and cuddly — and propaganda for robots to think humans will not disassemble them at every turn! Or maybe not, I dunno.

    Either way, this adorable video has been delighting people online, one showing a little girl hugging a broken water heater — not a robot or an attempt at a robot — and saying to it “I love you, robot”. It’s freaking. Adorable. And crazy that just something vaguely resembling a head can make something look like it has humanity. We relate to those giant eyes, consarn it!

    What do you think of this glorious robot creature who has declared himself worthy of hugs? Why not let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending, where all robot related opinions shall be discussed.
