Scaremongers started searching for ways to leave the planet.
Some people left unenthusiastic comments about the robot's posture.

My herniated C5/C6 disc area hurts just looking at that stupid forward posture.— Garrett Smith 👁️ (@jsfaq) 19 августа 2018 г.
My parents are going to be pretty pissed about our new robot overlords' poor posture— Kim Garbow (@the_kim_show) 19 августа 2018 г.
It turned out, however, that the video was part of ADAM, a series of short post-apocalyptic animated films made in real-time using the game engine Unity and directed by Neill Blomkamp, who is best known for sci-fi films District 9 and Elysium.
The director himself rushed to calm down pessimists waiting for intelligent robots to take over humanity.
