We have all seen the many Boston Dynamics videos where the robots are made to do countless tasks and even pushed over to test their balance. Now, this new parody sees a robot take a little too much and finally fight back.

The video, playfully called Bosstown Dynamics, sees a robot be hit with a hockey stick, a beer can and all around get pushed and shoved. Finally, it fights back with some amazing karate moves and even a gun.

Although the video is a joke it does bring up some important facts about the future of robotics. Is there a chance these futuristic advanced machines will ever get tired of serving us?

Many fear the robocalypse. Could this video be a funny glance into a future where it happens? It's still too early for that now as, for the time being, these robots have limited capacity for independent thought but it is something to consider.
