Oh, gag: Turbotax has created a Cinematic Universe?
Hey looky, it's that woman from the other Turbotax commercial who "escapes" the horror of a casual conversation to go over her tax return "line by line" on the phone while sitting in a coffee shop!
But wait....wasn't she just a costumer of Turbotax in that ad? I mean, she's just using a deluxe version of the service which includes a callback and personal line-by-line examination of her filing. In THIS ad, she seems to be intimately connected to Turbotax. So she's an employee of the service now? Then why didn't she do her own taxes?
And the whole little child robot thing....meh, whatever. I'd argue that a robot which has achieved self-awareness and dreams of becoming a Turbotax accountant has not actually achieved any level of self-awareness worth posessing. It would be like if Pinnochio came to life and announced that his great ambition was to fold boxes at Dominoes or work at a Discover Card call center. I'd excuse Geppetto for converting him into a tv tray. You know, something valuable.
Coming next: This robot kid and Nasty Antisocial Woman fend off lawsuits from Sprint for stealing their Robot Wanting To Use Its Programming to Whore for a Massive Corporation schtick.
