8 Funny Robot Commercials That Will Tickle Your Circuits

Whether it’s their charm or their stupidity, robots have always been interesting to watch in the media. In commercials specifically, their characters are often portrayed in a humorous role which can make anyone let out a small giggle.

But shockingly, they’re not as popular as you think. Commercials with robots occur once in a blue moon (or when a science fiction movie comes out). Its surprising the entertainment industry doesn’t do more with them because they appeal to all ages.

The following are just a handful of the robot commercials out there that will tickle your funny bone as well as leave you malfunctioning for more.

Funny Robot Commercial #1. ANZ Bank

There actually isn't one sole purpose to this commercial. In one sense, the use of robots can be seen as a portrayal at how "lifeless" some call centre employees can be and in another, it shows how some individuals aren't helpful at all. 

 

Funny Robot Commercial #2. Chevy Aveo

One of the more common themes for robot commercials, dancing robots can be pretty entertaining. In this Chevy advertisement, one vehicle turns into a problem that's could be more annoying than bad drivers on the road.  

 

Funny Robot Commercial #3. Nascar

Even though its not as funny as other commercials, this Nascar/Craftsman advertisement does make you think about where robots could be included in sports. 

 

Funny Robot Commercial #4. Double A Paper

The common solution to fixing a problem with an appliance or electronic device is simple: hit it hard. Whether its with your hand or foot, individuals tend to unleash a bit of anger on electronics when they don't work. But in this case, it's payback time! 

 

Funny Robot Commercial #5. Bud Light

Robot wars game shows and competition used to exist not too long ago, but now people haven't shown much interest in them anymore. This could be because not a lot of people have the time or patience to build a complicated fighting machine. But as this advertisement shows, going the simple route could work to your advantage.

 

Funny Robot Commercial #6. Hummer H3

Some may think this Hummer commercial is a bit too much for anyone to handle, but its undeniably unique and strangely funny. Plus it leaves you wondering what traits the vehicle received from its parents.  

 

Funny Robot Commercial #7. Budweiser

Robot dogs can be a kid's best friend, but what about a companion for a young, adventurous adult? Budweiser answers the question by showing man's "real best friend" is still reigns supreme as the number one buddy.  

 

Funny Robot Commercial #8. GM

Despite being banned on some networks because it showed acts of suicide, this GM commercial couldn't have picked a better time to advertise. During the Super Bowl a few years back, this clip became the instant hit for commercials during the event as the ending leaves you saddened and hysterical at the same time.  

 

Which one do you think is the funniest robot commercial? Are there any other commercials you know of that should have been mentioned?

Call Center had me laughing

Having worked in a call center, the first video was the funniest to me. I mean, how many times have I wanted to yell "Exterminate!" into the phone?

Does anyone remember the cassette tape commercial with two robots on the moon? one picks it up, and shoves it in his head and Jerry Lee Lewis comes screaming out? must have been just before the maxell commercial "blown away"- i can't seem to find a reference to it anywhere.
