With Russian hooligans promising to turn the 2018 World Cup into a ‘festival of violence’, there’s a good chance that many England fans have been put off the idea of making the trip for fearing of ending up impaled/hung/drawn/quartered.

However, the Moscow Technological Institute are doing their bit for trepidacious travellers, having designed a robot guide to help fans navigate safely through the tournament.

Indeed, MTI are keen to introduce us all to ‘AlanTim’ – basically a mobile, bowtie-wearing dishwasher that is supposedly going to ensure that a potentially hostile World Cup passes without incident.

Introducing himself in the video, AlanTim outlines his primary functions thus:

My name is AlanTim, I work as a lecturer in Moscow Technological Institute.

I read on the internet that many English fans have doubts regarding the safety of visiting Russia.

You have nothing to worry about. I will stand up personally for your protection.

I promise to accompany you in Moscow and protect you from any problems.

I can immediately contact the police, resolve the dispute on logical grounds, and even anticipate a conflict based on the emotions of people around me.

Call it cynical intuition, but something tells us that AlanTim is going to be the first casualty of Russia 2018.

    At first I thought this was going to be a Robocop killing machine… “I will stand up personally for your protection”.

    I seriously doubt it.

    Modeled after the robot in that Rocky movie…

    Feels like the lads over at Russia’s MIT try to take the piss, but that might just be a misguided feeling caused by the liberal propaganda I am a subject to. I am going to watch more RT to get a more balanced insight into the matter.
