Is this a Schadenfreudian Slip?

Don'cha just hate smug robots? Don'cha just love it when they fail?

Poor Asimo-chan. My favourite part is when the minders rush on and pull screens around its confused, flailing body...

I, for one, welcome our new falling-over-embarrassingly robot overlords.

Without being flippant, it appears from the video that the robot lost power. His leg gave way and he just collapsed. Maybe he should have kept his head forward so he could see where he was going. He was going pretty well until he fell. There must be incredible processing going on. It almost made me believe he wasn't a robot. I felt pity for him, actually.
