Top Ten Things That Sound Cool When Said By A Giant Robot (Optimus Prime):

10. Jergens Lotion leaves my hand silky smooth
9. Do you have these Khakis in size 114?
8. My perfect night is a pint of Haagen-Dazs and season 3 of Sex and the City
7. Man do I love these 'taters!
6. It was so hot in Central Park today, I saw a squirrel putting sunblock on his nuts
5. You seemed little pitchy (picky?), dawg
4. Brody Jenner had added you as a friend on Facebook
3. Live from New York it's Saturday Night!
2. My parents wanted me to be a rabbi
1. All the slammin's shorties in da hosue say YEAH!

They did a real good Prime animation. When it was over Dave said "Good luck getting a cab!"
Apparently he doesn't get the concept behind Transformers.

I immediately thought of that as well. But it's alright.

"Optimus Prime? You're a Jew???"

But Family Guy has a few good TF references, one with Soundwave, also one with Megatron, and don't forget, Crippletron!

OMG that was awesome! And they actually had Peter Cullen doing the voice!

David Letterman's such an idiot though. And I'm not just talking about that comment. I don't find him entertaining at all. :roll: The guy needs to retire already. Let someone else take over.

Oh, and that "Optimus Prime is Jewish" thing will never die now.

So true. I don't think he is funny. He pauses too much to get laughs to jokes that aren't funny. All he gets is courtesy laughs and applause. He's not even a good interviewer. No wonder Leno was kicking his ass for the last 15 years.

I thought #6 should have been #1 though. That was the funniest.

I thought it was intentional, perhaps the writers are fans of Family Guy?

Hayden P. looked good afterword...

But yeah, the Optimus thing was cool. Thankfully it was not the Twins. #-o

As I was scanning youtube for it, I came across a video of David Letterman 'playing with' the transforming Prime rig blaster from the first movie. Pretty funny. PG-13 humor for sure. And it fits right in with the first movie's reference to Sam's Happy Time. :grin:

It just aired on the "Left" Coast and yeah, #6 should have been #1. And I don't think that was a mod job on the voice. That had to be all Cullen. I can see Dave swinging that.

*facepalm* This is terrible, I actually felt appalled listening to this. Then reading everyone's comments.

Well... he sounded cool saying #1... kinda... *cries*

Much like his jokes and monologue, about 10% of them are funny.

I just watched the YouTube clip and was'nt too impressed -
BUT it was cool to see that they made an effort, and yeah it was
definitely Cullen's voice - overall, not a bad effort, but Dave
needs to retire or get new writers - and I also agree, #6 shoulda been #1!

Not the funniest, but that was pretty awesome. Doesn't it take hours for one frame of animation? I'm suprised they animated all that for just the late show lol. Still awesome seeing Prime in motion anyways.
