To promote its elaborate “dual-flush” Veil Intelligent toilet that features things like an “automatic deodorization system” and a “heated seat with adjustable temperature settings,” Kohler has rolled out a tongue-in-cheek spot that features robots who stumble across this toilet at a human’s house-warming party and become fascinated by its futuristic design. Created by DDB Chicago, the spot is part of Kohler’s ongoing ‘Never Too’ campaign that shows off the brand’s “forward-thinking design solutions” and is targeted towards “today’s style enthusiasts.” In the spot, a robot couple attend a housewarming party and appear to be bored by the lame jokes and dance moves of the human guests. But when they discover the Veil Intelligent toilet inside the bathroom, they decide to congregate in there with other robots and marvel at its features. One robot even snaps a quick selfie with the Veil.
