"...smart, innovative and irreverent..."
"Each installment of the show features Rob, the first clickable human being, standing in the middle of a different environment that is also clickable. If you click Rob's arm, something strange happens to it, and if you click a vodka bottle in the background, Rob will drink it, fall over and slap himself to sober up."
- American Cinematographer Magazine
