We don’t think Google has quite hit “Skynet” status yet, but they’re certainly on their way. After watching newly acquired Boston Dynamics’ show off their next-generation humanoid robot — a fully walking 2-legged robot named Atlas — in a new video last week, we can’t shake the feeling that Judgement Day could be soon be upon us.

Bringing a little less doom and gloom is YouTuber Mr. King who uploaded a parody video showing us exactly what could be going on inside Atlus’ head. You know, as his creators “test” his abilities and patience. Its pretty hilarious and somehow makes sense giving Atulus’ human-like mobility. It’s odd that seeing something move like a human automatically triggers feelings of empathy, but we imagine that wont last long once these things start taking all of our warehouse and factory jobs.

For anyone who missed it, you can watch the original Boston Dynamics video right here.
