    Yea Merkin is a pretty bad name but I think the blatant robosexuality in this ad is worse!

    Their slogan should be “Rely on Merkin for full coverage”

    (I’m just glad the robot doesn’t have one.)

    Could be worse. They could be a paintbrush maker.

    I was expecting to see some way of applying the paint to get that perfect finish, but the ad was just for paint. What has the robot got to do with it? Maybe he’s the one who puts the lead into the paint?
