Great, Now They're After Our Professional Athletes: Robot Kicks Soccer Ball 124MPH

January 28, 2010

Castrol, best known for keeping my ride lubed (double entendre!), went and created a robot to kick the everliving shit out of a soccer ball? Why? Cause they're a bunch of jerks.

Is there no end to the effort a company will expend on a promotional stunt? Deemed unsafe for training goalies, this bot seems useless. It will be touring the world as a demo of technical prowess and corporate largess, showing the lengths to which a company will go to garner attention. Looks like it's worked so far.

God, could you even imagine getting kicked by that thing? It'd be like, well, having your balls projected out the top of your skull at lightspeed. Which, I don't know about you, but I've been trying to avoid. Just sayin', a mule got me once, sent em as high my throat. They were salty.
