Today, we’re mellowing out with this indie folk song from Canadian crooner Dan Mangan. “Robots need love too; they want to be loved by you,” he sings. Truer words have never been spoken.
This music video/short film was inspired by early 80s gang movies, according to the video’s description. “Robots tells the story of two rival gangs who engage in their own back-alley version of robot wars, pitting one robot against the other in a battle to the finish,” it explains. “But when one robot chooses compassion over malice, the gang members are forced to question their own hatred and animosity towards each other.” All that in under five minutes. Enjoy!
