Description: 

The robot arrives on planet Earth, joining his supersonic car – actually a shopping cart found in a supermarket parking lot. The robot does not run into anything in spite of its pronounced nearsightedness, thanks to the devout attention of the watchman, who ends up as his partner on stage, preventing a sure fall. Triumphant exit, the robot leaves the stage to great applause, seizing the opportunity to borrow the metal detector, which sets off an alarm and begins blinking its lights madly, to the great terror of the security guards.
