They’re taking our jobs! No, I’m not talking about immigrants, I’m talking about robots. No, I’m not talking about factory jobs, I’m talking about strippers. That’s right, strippers. Robot strippers have made their debut in Las Vegas. This, my friends, is now a thing.
……apparently, our silicon friends are going to start stripping for us, too. According to the New York Post, a Las Vegas strip club will feature a pair of android dancers on the poles in honor of the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show this week.
The robot strippers are more of a publicity stunt than an actual attempt to be titillating, since they have the heads of security cameras and look like bad Banksy graffiti come to life. But the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club apparently figures it’ll be a fun way to bring in some folks from CES this year.
“Come watch sparks fly as the Robo Twins shake their hardware and leave everyone wondering if those double Ds are real or made in ‘Silicone’ Valley,” the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club wrote in a recent announcement about their android additions.
Peter Feinstein, a managing partner at Sapphire, told the Daily Beast that the club was “looking for something creative to do during CES” that would cater to both male and female CES attendees, and decided to ship the dancing bots in from the UK for the week.
“The majority of strip clubs are not appealing to people through CES,” Feinstein continued. “We’re offering a different place to go. If you’re six people from a company and there’s two women and four guys, you can still [come] here and have some fun and see the robots and not feel like you have to be part of a strip club.”
