CBS TV- I cannot speak to any other source than the television, but as I was watching re-runs of Monday night CBS sitcoms, a commercial came on showing a CGI model of Optimus Prime in the Late Show studio, and a voice over saying that Optimus Prime would be doing the top ten tonight.

For those unfamiliar with 'The Late Show With David Letterman', it stars David Letterman and interviews guests of current U.S. cultural significance (entertainers, athletes, musicians, and more).

One of the show's signature routines is a 'Top Ten' list related to some event or person of current interest.

Chances are that we will be able to catch this tomorrow on youtube, or the list will be able to be found on the CBS Late Show website.

'The Late Show With David Letterman' airs weekdays at 11:30 on PM (Eastern/Pacific) on CBS.

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.

Anyone else think #2 was a Family Guy reference?

I'm thinking it's more than coincidental.

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:

On CBS' front page they have 10-8 as a preview. The whole thing will probably be put up tomorrow...

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.

I'm sure it'll be on youtube later, but for now, I found it here:

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

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

Wow, that wasn't funny at all. I never liked Letterman's Top 10 lists.

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