I still kinda think that G1 transforming noise sticks out a bit too much to me...

But yeah, I saw this yesterday and was wondering how quick it would be before it was up on YT. :P

What a waste. McDonalds should have grabbed the rights so they could have a Big Mac Truck promo.

But, as commercials go, this ain't bad. "Oh, come on", funny line. But I still feel the best commercial is Mountain Dew. That transforming toaster taunting the guy is hilarious, must be a decepticon.

Heh, my favorite part was "Sir, this is a drive-through. You need a vehicle." Rofl. This is a pretty good advertisement. :D

Yes, that is Peter Cullen.

Peter Cullen must be having a ball with these.

For those who are interested:

That's exactly how Prime sounds in the actual movie. No voice processing at all, just natural Peter Cullen "Prime" voice.


Nice, huh? :)

I love it! I did indeed laugh out loud.

That was cool I loved the G1 transforming sound and Prime getting miffed because he had no driver

Now we all know what Optimus Prime's favourite burger fixings are. He likes pickles.

This must be made canon. Right. Now.

It's the first thing I've liked about he movie so far. Maybe they'll surprise me somewhere else. lol

I was still hoping for th King to be driving Optimus...oh well.

Dammit, Prime wants it his way. Right away. At Burger King NOW!!! That kid at the window is either fired or strapped to a chair in the manager's office, forced to watch a never-ending loop of BK commercials with the King in them.

Nice. Is there a rule saying that you need a driver to get food from the drive through? I know you need a car but do you really need a driver?

Hopefully if this does well enough maybe we'll see another BK one w/ the King transforming into something... hey we finally got a live action movie, dreams are coming true.

I totally agree, I think the Dew one is better, even though I did laugh out loud for this BK one.

There's toys at NZL BK. I'm going to get me some. Of course, I'm not a huge fan of BK in that I've been put off fast food by knowing what's in it.

Damn nursing science classes!!

Don't JiB in NZL.

And we only have one Wendy's that I know of, and it's a six hours drive away.

Well... 3 and a half if you drive at 140Ks along the straight.... best people dont' inquire how I know that.

OOh, I'm all fiesty, TF movie soon for me. :grin:

Turning Prime (well, his voice - The rest hardly is Optimus Prime to begin with) into a shillwhore. Degrading the character.

Posted by Prowl_83 on June 27th, 2007 @ 5:02pm CDT
Yep. Degrading the character designed to shill toys back in the 80s...

Lighten up :grin:

YOur sarcasm isnt exactly the most "mature" thing either buddy. and how mature do you want fans of big transforming robots to be?? you just need to get that broom out of your butt and laugh a little! that commercial is hilarious! :)

Mature enough to see an advertisement for what it is, yes. I tend to not take this franchise so seriously as some people. This is a commercial. For Burger King. With Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime. Lighten up.

I laugh about things that are actually funny, thanks a bundle.

Although, I'm admitably a little biased. I cursed the upcoming Burger King promotions ever since I read about them in the script last year. (In case you didn't know - the script actually had a lot of the product placement explicitely in place)

Optimus should've just created a holo-driver like Blackout did at the military base

Meh. I don't find it funny. It's more 'cute'. Like something an elderly person would find funny and I'd feel compelled to force a smile and and go along with. Like an ABC family sitcom, complete with laughtrack to remind everyone when it's supposed to be funny.

Do you seriously expect me to list everything which I find amusing now ?

That... is actually kind of funny.
