LOLing: the sweded BigDog robot video

The other week I shared my concerns about the inevitable robot uprising, evidenced by the latest high tech demonstration of the BigDog Quadruped robot, which can carry around 160kg and is very nimble.

Something I forgot about though is humanity's untiring ability to mock our oppressors - fortunately this "sweded" version of the BigDog video has restored my faith.

"Sweding" a video is a term taken from Be Kind, Rewind - the latest Michel (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) Gondry film and refers to the practice of making an ultra-low budget version of popular films/tv shows.

(Funnily enough, this seems to reflect every video I made in the last 15+ years - a selection of which can be found on YouTube under the tag Brown_Couch)
