Description
This video depicts a humanoid robot performing military training exercises while being hit with various objects like hockey sticks. The robot holds a gun and practices firing at targets. The video includes the text, "Bosstown Dynamics" (instead of Boston Dynamics) and the video description reads, "there's a new robot in town. You'll see it in the army soon!"

Underneath, there is a disclaimer that reads, "this video is a comedic parody and is not owned, endorsed, created by, or associated with the Boston Dynamics company". It is a follow-up from their last viral video called "Boston Dynamics: New Robots Now Fight Back". The creators used CGI and motion capture to create the action.
