Robot Day: "I'm A Robot Programmed Not To Know That I'm A Robot"

Going on a Wall-E binge last night reminded me of one of my favorite pieces of robot related media; Pete Misner's video for Scent of a Robot. The song is a rap ballad in which an average guy realizes he and everyone else he knows are robots. It's a hilariously deadpan piece of absurdity that easily slides between humor and philosophy, and features some pretty fun CG robot models as well.

You can check out the YouTube video above for instant gratification, though a nice high quality Quicktime is available on Pete's official site.
