Watch two robots get married in Japan

It's a nice day for a ... robot wedding? Funny thing is, I'm not joking. We've seen some strange things come out of Japan before, but this one might take the cake ... the wedding cake.

Two robots in Tokyo - Frois and  Yukirin - got married this past week in the first-ever robot wedding ceremony held in the world. Both robots walked down the aisle in traditional wedding garb. To make it even better, the ceremony was officiated by the world's first robot to recognize human facial expressions, Pepper.

There were also robot bridesmaids and a robot master of ceremonies. Even the ushers were "helper" robots.

The robots said "I do," then Frois was able to kiss his bride, which he did by extending out his metal lips to seal the deal with his new robot bride. It was kind of awkward, kind of funny.

The ceremony was attended by both humans and several robots, including the robot's parents - i.e., creators. Guests paid up to $80 for a ticket. For that $80, guests received a specially-made invitation with a photo of the happy couple inside a heart. Aw.

So, for these two robots, it's "till death do we part." Good thing for them, there are also robot undertakers for all of your robot funeral needs.

Watch a clip from the wedding below. I can almost guarantee it will be the strangest thing you see today.
