Although group mating demonstrations are relatively uncommon (most males like to work alone in their quest for genetic perseverance), mating dances aren’t.

So when RedFoo and SkyBlu “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle” it out to show who has the highest “sexiness” factor, they are essentially emulating animals such as this wiggling, moonwalking Manakin bird.

Another examples of mating dances:

In the end, the competing dominant males are so distracted by their shows of sexual grandeur that the passive robot male walks off with the females they are fighting for. A classic case of love lost to superficial frivolities as oft expounded upon in so many great novels throughout the centuries.

The robot is also a metaphor for the future or a modern man who wins based on intellect instead of psychical display.
