GE’s “Robots on the Move” TV Spot: Electric Nostalgia (With A Few Missing Parts)…

Nice. I usually hate these well-funded evil corporate spots, but GE has done two nicely nostalgic ones featuring classic cartoon characters (I think that was last year) and now this wonderful spot featuring too many classic to current robots from a few too many films, TV shows and other places. I hope there’s a “making of” video out there that has longer looks at some of my favorites. Of course, a few (well, more than a few) are missing (no Star Wars droids? And hey, a Twonky would have been too FANTASTIC, but oh well). Hmmm, now that I think about it, a longer version with some not so good ‘bots (HAL 9000, Roy Batty, perhaps David from Prometheus) would make for a nice in-joke in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Blade Runner follow-up…
