Well this is all sorts of awesome. Grossly underrated late night host Craig Ferguson has no sidekick, unless you count his accent. Grant Imahara of the television show Mythbusters is a bio robot builder, so he sought out to get them wrongs corrected by offering to build Ferguson his very own robot sidekick. The asking price? 100,000 Twitter followers. Awesome.
@CraigyFerg I hear you are looking for a robot sidekick. I think I can help... for a price: get me 100,000 followers. If you can! [via twitter]
One thing I have learned in all my time on this planet is that if someone ever offers to build you a robot sidekick and they have the chops to do such a thing, you do whatever it is you can to make that happen. Ferguson agrees with the philosophy and has since enlisted his army of Skeleton Robots and accomplished the task, thus we have the following tweet via CraigyFerg, complete with name.
The Skeleton Robots are at your door @grantimahara. Do not anger them. Commence the build of Geoff Peterson. (robot sidekick)
Obviously we will keep you updated on the awesome that ensues in Geoff Peterson's future. [via the live feed]
