Apparently there's a scene in the Clerks 2 movie where a couple of characters debate about the Transformers. Apparently Kevin Smith isn't a fan of the Transformers so he wrote this scene into the movie.

The movie debuts in theatres tomorrow, July 21st, 2006.

Can you talk about the jabs you took at "Lord of the Rings" and "Transformers" fans a little bit?

It's all in good fun. I don't even consider them jabs. It's just basically writing characters and giving them a point of view. For years people were telling me since we make all these pop culture references, I've had all these kids younger than me who were like, "Dude, you have to reference the 'Transformers.'" I did not grow up on the "Transformers," that was a cartoon that was after me. I didn't watch adventure cartoons like "Transformers" or "G.I. Joe," that was kids younger than me. I had this one dude on my Web site, this dude Omega, he's posted as Omega for years since 1995, was always going, "You need a Transformers reference in your movie." But I was like, "Dude, I have nothing to say about the Transformers." So, when I was writing this, and I was writing the Elias character I thought this is a mother fucker who would like the Transformers. It's fortuitous in terms of timing because they are now making that fucking "Transformers" movie and that trailer went live last weekend and suddenly, wow, what a timely reference.
