Robot butler serves up big laughs in Wink commercial

Wink is a smart app for smart homes. “It’s like a robot butler but not as awkward,” touts the commercial series featuring a mechanical mascot. The ASIMO knockoff isn’t just physically awkward. It develops human emotions, which leads to some awkward moments. A woman working out is leered at by her robot butler while it dusts a phallic looking cactus. It gives a whole new meaning to rise of the machines. Things get even more creepy when she has to shut shades herself and the robot says “that’s nice, sets the mood.” You may think twice about wearing a skirt around your Roomba after watching this commercial.
