Asimo's post-tournament interview
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06
>> Hold on. Here, sorry to interrupt you. We are
getting word that the Honda Asimo has won the
non-violent robot championship. We now go to a press
conference in Japan City, Japan.
^M00:00:22 [ Applause and cheering ] ^M00:00:48
>> Yeah, you in the shirt. Ah hem.
>> Asimo, first of all, congratulations on the win. You
really dominated, I think, from the outset. I think
everyone was really pulling for you. There weren't a
lot of surprises.
>> Yeah, thanks.
>> I just wanted to ask you what was your game plan
going into this, and how did you prepare for D?
>> Well, you know, D's a -- D's a tough competitor. He
always brings his A-game. I just wanted to go out there
and give 110 percent. And sometimes I would literally
give 110 percent because there was a glitch with the
online polling system. But regardless, you know, I just
want to thank God for giving me the strength to compete,
and I got some good looks out there, got some tough

>> Yeah, you in the sombrero.
>> Before the tourney, people were talking about

game, we're talking about practice, man. You come in
the arena, you see me play, you see me give everything
I've got, right?
>> Absolutely --
>> Well I'm just --
>> Practice. Practice, man, we're talking about
practice. Yeah, you in the shoes.
>> Probably the toughest draw of the number one
[Inaudible], you have the ballroom dancing robot, the
[Inaudible] fridge, and the Sony [Inaudible] --
>> Let me tell you something, there are no easy draws in
this tournament. Every draw is tough. You've just got
to go out there and give 110 to 120%, and you've just
got to battle every step of the way. And I'm not
literally talking about battle, because that's against
>> Hey Asimo! What's this thing here about sex with fax
>> Hey, get him out of here.
>> Huh? We want the truth!
>> I'm not going to talk about my personal life; I'm not
taking any more questions.
