Japanese Comic Zenjiro Partners with PaPeRo

This has to be a really strange partner for a comedian. Zenjiro has teamed with one of NEC's PaPeRos, bots that speaks Japanese and English. Apparently they perform a skit that makes fun of Japan's English language teaching with the robot as the instructor. While this does not sound like an outstanding performance idea to us, NEC must be thrilled to be getting free advertising under the guise of humor. While we couldn't find any video of the two and their act, we did find about 10 seconds of blue humor on YouTube.
