Cup Noodles Made a Cup Noodles Robot

For Nissin Cup Noodle's 40th anniversary, they created an adorable robot, of course

In addition to that awesome ramen museum that opened in September, now there's a super cute Cup Noodle robot. It talks in a high-pitched voice and bounces up and down. Apparently the little guy is also a timer?

A translator noted to us that the robot starts his act after two minutes (the standard cooking time is three) and talks about food for a bit to get you prepped for instant-noodle goodness.  Watch the commercial below, followed by a video of the robot in action. Now, where can we get one?
