Time to take our cars back from the robots – Click above to watch video after the jump

Computers are constantly gaining a foothold on the everyday tasks that occur in our lives, but there are some tasks we simply hold too dear to let go. Or are there?

Jeopardy has gone the way of the robot and Google has shown that cars can be controlled without a human taking the wheel. Continuing down this path could lead to a future where the vehicles on the road are being piloted by robots or computers. Dodge doesn't want to see that day come, and it sends a shot right across the bow of SkyNet's patrolling warships.

In a new commercial for the 2011 Dodge Charger, we're given a glimpse into a world where technology is done creeping. It's everywhere, and it affects all portions of our daily routine. One man has had enough, and decides to take back control of his vehicle (the fascia of which bears an eerie resemblance to the latest Charger). Cut to a shot of present day, and Dodge proclaims that robots "will never take our cars."

That's right, Dodge. Fight the evil robot overlords. Click past the jump to check out the clip.
