Cody is a regular American boy. He likes watching DVDs, hates nature, and has a blog.
While his family were driving to Las Vegas, Cody sat in the back seat and watched a DVD on a portable player. Their SUV stayed off course and into the Nevada Test and Training Range, where his father stopped the vehicle. His father tried to divert Cody's attention to what appeared to be fireworks, but they then realized were three giant robots battling the US military. Cody grabbed his phone to record a video for his blog, but his mother was already reaching for hers so she could sell the footage to the TV networks.
