|"I can't decide if it's more creepy or comical. I wonder how hard would it be to build an RC toy with a similar configuration?
FYI the commentary doesn't say much. It's a basic TV item."

|"Yeah, I was thinking of offering a translation of what they were saying but the text pretty much says it all already.
And those snakes from Salvation are called Hydrobots because that's their element. Cool movie, go see it."

|"Thanks, guys - I really appreciate your offer of help. However, the reason that the text mostly says it all is that I asked my neighbor for a quick translation! He's usually not around for my translation questions (busy gerontologist), so any help in translating non-English works is greatly appreciated!"
