John Oliver Skewers Lowe’s Robot Sales Assistant and Introduces a Hilarious Home Depot Ad on ‘Last Week Tonight’

Host John Oliver skewered Lowe’s robot sales assistant and offered up a special ad for Home Depot to take advantage of Lowe’s decision on a recent episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (previously). The special Home Depot ad features Nick Offerman as a sales associate who has to defuse explosive situations that develop between a couple–played by H. Jon Benjamin and Sarah Baker–trying to plan their bathroom.

In partnership with Lowe’s Innovation Labs, Fellow Robots and Singularity University, Orchard is the first retailer to explore how Autonomous Retail Service Robot (ARSR) technology can improve and enhance in-store service and training. Our San Jose Midtown store will be the home to OSHbot, an associate and customer assistance device designed with a number of ground-breaking features that help customers navigate the store and associates work more effectively.
