martini-drinking robot minions

Awhile ago, I wrote about the robots (Stormtroompas) working behind the scenes at the San Jose Mercury News. It would be great, I thought at the time, to capture these things on video.

So I did.

Here, for your amusement, is a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Merc-bots. And the massive printing presses, and some charming humans. In the last scene, Mama and Papa Drake even make an appearance.

Oh yeah. I added an out-take reel as well.

    Haha….the folder, plastic knives and paper napkins on top of the filing cabinet are still there…..You and Sandeep left little bread crumbs on the intern desk :) There’s a sticky note with the phrase “NADS was here” on the edge of the desk, and Sandeep left some notes. Makes me miss you guys, but I’m not going to remove them. It’s like I’m at work with friends.
