Ghost Robot!

Flee! Flee before the ectotronic terror of... The Phantomaton 2000!

Is it the ghost of a robot who died, or a robot made out of ghosts? What is its nefarious purpose? Why is it looking at your Wii like that?

Some people say the Ghost Robot doesn't exist, that it is the fever-dream of technofetishphobiacs and crack-addled fishwives. But we know better, oh yes, we do.

edit: more shocking evidence here.

another edit: footage of the Ghost Robot in motion! so, now we know it's not just a pie plate on a string.

"I am the Ghost Robot, and I will now bring this meeting to order."

I can probably arrange more of a studio setup, you know.

Joel Priddy said...

I am intrigued, young Mr. Duong. We must speak more of this.

I personally kind of like the original photo because it has that grainy bigfoot photo feel to it.

This photographic evidence of the ghost robot makes me wish IN SEARCH OF was still on the air. Leonard Nimoy would get to the bottom of this controversy before the second commercial break.

Joel Priddy said...

I dunno. I'm pretty sure it's nothing more than swamp gas.

flipping phantasmical.

Joel Priddy said...

Dean,

Yes, that is one of the Ghost Robot's powers. He can flip phantasmicals at a highly accelerated rate.
