This robot is a Japanese salary-man crawling in his suit. It sends a great social message bout the Japanese obsession with work. The concept is bizarre but amazing as far as robotic future advancements. I can't comment on the nurse, but overall the video is intriguing.

Implications - Art that makes a social commentary is well received because it has a deeper meaning that is not often addressed publicly, yet is near and familiar to most. The updated version of social commentary art sees unconventional executions, as seen with this crawling Japanese salary man. The combination of oddity and social knowledge makes for a piece that consumers can enjoy and relate to.
