CNET posted a video to Twitter in response to one of Boston Dynamics' Spot launch videos from April 2019 which showed 10 Spot robots pulling a large truck. The video contains text that reads, "finally an answer to the age-old question. How many robot dogs does it take to pull a truck across a parking lot?"

The video also contains clips from other Boston Dynamics' videos, showing Spot dancing as well as putting an empty can into the garbage. The text reads, "how would you use a Spot robot?"
