YouTube video features gun-wielding robot dog in Texas


Over the weekend, Australian content creator “I did something” posted a video on YouTube where he attaches a fully automatic submachine gun to a robot dog to see if it could solve school shootings in the United States in light of the May 24 mass shooting in Uvalde.

The video shows YouTuber, Alex Apollonov, controlling the robot dog around Uvalde and stopping in front of a CISD Uvalde school bus. He says he was in the United States when a gunman shot and killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School.

“I intended to come here and do something really dangerous, but now I’ve realized that I can’t compete with normal, everyday American life,” Apollonov says in the video. “So instead, I’m going to try to help and solve the shooting problem in American schools by attaching a gun to this robot dog.”

The video then shows this robot dog awkwardly falling onto its back as Mozart’s “Lacrimosa” puffs up.

Apollonov and his channel “I did a thing” on YouTube make videos where he tests his creations, like a shark suitwhile occasionally commenting on global or political issues.

He says in this new video that he and others think attaching a gun to a robot dog is a dumb idea, but then shows Fox News clips of Texas politicians like Senator Ted Cruz and Attorney General Ken Paxton saying teachers and administrators should be armed.

What follows is 16 minutes of Apollonov repeatedly attempting to attach an MP5 submachine gun to the robot dog and testing the weapon in a wooded property in Texas with Brandon Herrera, who has a YouTube channel with 2.05 million subscribers showing off his extensive gun collection.

Apollonov says Herrera lives “just down the road” from Uvalde and “believes America needs more guns.”

Apollonov tests the gun-wielding robot on cardboard cartoon cutouts of children, an elderly man, and what appears to be a teenager with a messenger bag. The goal is not to hit the children’s cutouts. The robot dog handles most single shots from the gun, but becomes more inaccurate when firing fully automatic bursts – at one point it knocks the robot dog off its feet.

After seeing one of the bullets hit one of the cardboard cutouts of a child, Apollonov sends the robot dog to the Uvalde Police Department to throw a box of donuts at the front door. The video currently has 2.7 million views.
