Interview for Lets Japan by Rosey the Robot.
Rosey/LJ: Assistant Robot, you really are following in the footsteps of your grandfather Roll-Oh the Robot.
Assistant Robot: (laughs) Yes. But I actually roll.
R/LJ: Let’s talk about your…
AR: Before we get started, I just want to say you are my idol. You inspired me.
R/LJ: Thank you. Now, your handlers say you can, and I quote "put away dishes smoothly." Now, tell us, really, how many plates have you broken?
AR: I have never a broken a plate.
R/LJ: Not one?
R/LJ: A-R, why 5 eyes?
AR: I have 4 stereo cameras on the front of my head. And a laser sensor on the top of my head.
R/LJ: I was able to get by with two eyes and I had to watch over Elroy, Judy, and that d**m dog Astro.
AR: Well, you have those two antennas sticking out the sides of your fat head.
R/LJ: Your developers say you can learn from your mistakes. What have you learned?
AR: Always wash lights and darks separately.
R/LJ: You recognize ambient sound.
AR: I’m sorry. What?
R/LJ: YOU CAN HEAR!
R/LJ: Do you have an iPod?
AR: Of course. A white Nano.
R/LJ: What’s on your playlist?
AR: AC/DC, Beyonce, Metallica, Koda Kumi, Gazette and that ‘Louie, Louie’ song.
R/LJ: What’s your gender?
AR: I’m a prototype.
R/LJ: A-R, why are you always frowning?
AR: I do housework! It’s not fun you know.
R/LJ: I want to get a little personal now. How much do you weigh?
AR: One hundred thirty kilograms.
R/LJ: It looks like you’re hauling a Good Humor truck back there.
AR: I knew it! I do have a big butt! They told me I didn’t. (cries)
R/LJ: If Roll-Oh were alive today, what do you think he’d say.
AR: Shall we ask him? My advanced technology hetrodyne stimulator reaction activator allows me to communicate with Roll-Oh’s regenerator concavination intermediate amplifier circuits.
R/LJ: What’s Roll-Oh saying?
