Earworm: Mr. Roboto

I have never been a particularly big Styx fan, but "Mr. Roboto" is so ingrained into my musical upbringing that I can't ignore its impact on my life. It certainly may well be the entire reason that I started studying Japanese in elementary school.
Unfortunately, all I can do now is spout off random phrases that I remember, as well as swear up a storm.  I really need to get back into studying the language.
Getting back to Styx, my single-favorite memory involving "Mr. Roboto" is the Volkswagen commercial that used the song while Tony Hale (Buster Bluth from Arrested Development) did the robot inside of his car. My dance skills are just about as advanced as his.
