Breakbot 'My Toy' by AB/CD/CD

Cat Velez - 13th Apr 2016

Directing team AB/CD/CD have created a superbly entertaining video for French producer Breakbot's My Toy – featuring British DJ & vocalist Yasmin – which gives the classic Hollywood musical production number a sexy, Gallic-flavoured modern twist. 

The toy in question is a boy robot without a face, brought to life by a bevy of girl designers and engineers - and whisked off in an animatronic seat - shaped like a female breast. Thus the sexy retro-futurist tone is set for the rest of the video, with our awestruck robot protagonist observing a parade of attractive women as they perform an elaborate choreography including seductive cat costumes as well as aerobics and cheerleading routines.

The engineers back at the lab eventually decide upon a face which reflects his state of overwhelmed excitement. But having been primed for love with one partner, will true love prevail? Our will our boy robot be a little too human?
