A lot of people have already gotten their tax refunds, and because of that some folks have had some extra cash to splurge a little. But what happens when you’re a billionaire and you literally have everything on the planet? Well, you do with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos did: you get a robot dog and take him for a walk for some reason.
Bezos was recently photographed taking his “dog,” named SpotMini, for a little creepy strolled at the annual MARS robotics conference in Palm Springs, California. Have a look at the photo below shared by Bezos himself on Twitter:

Yep, that’s what super rich people do now — they walk robot dogs, they wear vests and they look like they’re on their way to destroy a group of superheroes. And Bezos has quite the amount of cash to his name as according to Gizmodo he’s worth about $130 billion.
Now let’s just say that Twitter had their opinions on this bizarre photo:
