INGLEWOOD, Calif. — When the Chargers moved from San Diego to Los Angeles in 2017, disgruntled San Diego sports fans would often joke that the only Chargers fans in the stands in L.A. were paid actors.
Six years later they were partially correct for one game.
The Chargers partnered with 20th Century Studios to promote the release of The Creator, which comes out Sept. 29, by seating artificial intelligence robots featured in the sci-fi film amongst the crowd at SoFi Stadium on Sunday for the Chargers’ season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
Photos of the AI robots wearing Chargers jerseys in the crowd, went viral after the game after The Sporting Tribune tweeted about it.
Soon after the images and tweet were picked up by ESPN, Bleacher Report, Front Office Sports, Yahoo Sports, Jomboy Media and several other outlets.
