Namco, You Dirty, Dirty Dog (Robot?)

Illustration for article titled Namco, You Dirty, Dirty Dog (Robot?)

Spotted by game localizer and author Matt Alt, this Namco ad from the mid-1980s originally ran in a toy industry trade publication. In it, an android looks up a woman's skirt.


At that time, Namco's slogan was "We Create 'Play'", and the text at the bottom reads, "Professor! The beauty of your legs exceeds my calculations."

During the early 1980s, Namco made more than arcade games. It also built robots—though, not of the upskirt variety. As far as we know, that is!

I accidentally used that same manoeuvre to peep up my librarian buddy's skirt. No amount of mind bleach can wipe away the shame.

My lack of self-awareness combined with my general clumsiness makes me prone to these kinds of accidents.
