Comcast becomes Autobot in Taiwanese animation about Time Warner deal

Next Media Animation's video about Comcast's proposed purchase of Time Warner Cable does not disappoint. At one point, hoodie-clad young men with the names of various networks -- ESPN, Fox, HBO -- chase cable guys across a playground with machine guns blazing. But then the cable guys' vans turn into a giant robot that vaporizes the network dudes. The robot then mugs a subscriber.



Later the new company stops the same poor schmuck from downloading a picture of a naked woman. "Sounds like a win-win situation," the narrator says.
