Tonight on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson we are finally going to meet robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson and the excitement is too much for me too compute for y’all. For those of you who are trying to figure out why the Robot Skeleton Army have been waiting anxiously for tonight, here is why…
After joining “the Twitter” in February, Ferguson (@CraigyFerg) nicknamed his followers on the social media platform “the Robot Skeleton Army” and joked on THE LATE LATE SHOW that he needed a skeleton sidekick. In turn, Imahara, a former animatronics engineer and model maker known for his work on R2D2 and the Energizer Bunny, kicked off a campaign for the construction of a sidekick on March 1 with a tweet that read:
“@CraigyFerg I hear you are looking for a robot sidekick. I think I can help… for a price: get me 100,000 followers. If you can.”
To which, Ferguson immediately followed with:
“Roboskels. Urgent! I need you to follow @grantimahara. For 100k followers he’ll build a roboskeleton sidekick. Advance my rattly cyborgs!”
I like many other Robot Skeleton Army members began following Mythbuster’s Grant Imahara as soon as I saw CraigyFerg’s Tweet and now I can’t wait to see what he has come with for Craig Ferguson and us. What will Geoff Peterson do? How will Craig use him? And who do you think will be the first guest that Geoff Peterson will decapitate on the show? Find out tonight on CBS at 12:37a when Grant, Geoff and Kristen Bell will all be guests on the show!
