Justin Bieber Becomes Robot Spokesman


This item almost makes you wish for the good ol’ days — when pop stars would make headlines for booze-fueled buffoonery rather than just shamelessly shilling random shit.

Alas, Justin Bieber has signed on to endorse a robot at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, according to CNET.

Bieber, who does not appear to have an extensive background in robotics or regularly use artificial intelligence, has nonetheless decided to rep TOSY — a Vietnamese concern that makes ping-pong and bartending robots.

It looks like Bieber might promote TOSY’s new “entertainment” robot. The details about the bot are scheduled to be released Wednesday, when TOSY officially unveils the design.
