TW3RK-BOT 1.0


Basement Jaxx - Never Say Never ft. ETML

This is more than a little nuts. The tune doesn't appeal to me but the video is way out there. International Business Times had the story back in July of 2014:
   British electronic dance music duo Basement Jaxx have released a new music video that features Japanese scientists creating TW3RK-BOT 1.0, a new type of robot that specialises in twerking.
    The video for Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe's new single "Never Say Never" parodies the futuristic robotics technology coming out of Japan, such as inventor Nobuhiro Takahashi's SHIRI robot butt and Hiroshi Ishiguro's new humanoid robots at the Miraikan.
    A laboratory of Japanese scientists work to develop a robot that can emulate a human dancing and twerking, by scanning the movments of twerking dancers into a computer and a making silicone cast of a perfect human derriere.
