It's either a 1950s horror flick "Return of the zombie Japanese robots from the moon" or the new red bull commercial
Being relatively new to popsci, at a glance I thought this was some sort of article about a terrifying new Dutch tv show where some Japanese are given cyborg modifications and taken to Texas to fight a train made of beef with Americans in it.
I think I should go to bed. (it's 0100 here)
