Cleatus gets beat(us)

I don’t want to write about, read about, or think about the game last night…ever again…but I did want to mention it was cool to see the Fox Sports Robot (who received a shiny new paint job for the event) throw down with the Terminator endoskeleton. Kudos for the marketing gimmick, Fox (especially if it was intended as a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgment of the robot’s unpopularity with many viewers).

You can watch the three clips at http://www.myspace.com/superbowlads under the “Fox/NFL Promos” section.

  1. I noticed that too. Pretty cool. Though, the second time when the Terminator dragged Cleatus off, it looked like there were two more Sports Robots coming up to get some payback.

  2. I particularly enjoyed the little animation of Cleatus shakin' it out, rolling his head, you know, loosenin' up.

  3. Who are these fictitious people that hate the Robot so much? Some people need a swift kick in the 'nads…

  4. If you do a Google search for Fox Sports Robot, you will come across a good number of hate threads.

    Here's one…

    Another one…

    Another one…

    And one by a fellow who has wasted far too much time of his life hating a graphic image.

    MWC was the one whose review mentioned how hated the character was–he could be basing that on the search results. However, I have heard disparaging comments from people at various football get-togethers I went to this season.

    I'm cool with him, personally. There are worse graphics out there, such as ANY graphic of a person, thing, or alien dancing because he/she/it got a low mortgage rate. Those ads make me die a little inside every time I see them.

  5. Damn! Why the hate? Its a stupid graphic! I still haven't found the guy.

    I entered into a contest at a certain online action figure website, but they have yet to announce a winner… kinda funny, cuz I got the impression the drawing would be after the game.

    I might as well order it online. If I wait too long my football fervor will be gone, but its still a good toy.
