The BattleBot phenomenon has cooled just enough to be hot again, making this DDB-sponsored "RoboBash" between machine and mini-fridge a smashing success. In one corner of the klieg-lit ring is a monster robot, replete with a razor-edged wrecking ball. In the other, a squeaking, wood-paneled mini-fridge. Bets are on the robot until, wham! The fridge opens to reveal a Bud Light, distracting the robot's nerdy remote controllers. Suddenly, a giant hammer extends from behind the fridge and pounds the robot to rubble.
