and $50,000 to create a robotScarlett Johansson.

-Oh!-Oh! Robo ScarJo. -(laughter)

He carefully crafted it to havethe same physical appearance

as one of his favoriteHollywood actress,

but unlike the realHollywood actress,

this one does not know howto file a restraining order yet.

and watch your house burn.

when she becomes self-aware.

(in robotic voice):I only make 75%

of what Robert Downey Jr. makes.

-(laughter, cheers and applause)-HARDWICK: Points.


(in robotic voice): Thank you,Ricky Ma, for proving once again

Asians can do everything!

(cheers and applause)

-HARDWICK: They can.-That's right. That's right.

Asians can make everything(bleep)able.
