The next Rifftrax is Michael Bay’s most recent testosterone festival, Transformers. Accompanying that announcement is the above photoshop job, which is quite possibly the best one I’ve yet seen come out of Camp Rifftrax. Mike makes an unnervingly believable Optimus Prime. The track rolls out on November 20th.
As a life-long Transformers fanatic, I’m more than happy to see them tackle the obnoxious Bay’s work. The movie isn’t nearly as bad as its detractors claim, but it’s still a heavily flawed film that doesn’t hold up through repeat viewings. I can deal with Optimus having a mouth; the drawn-out masturbation dialogue, less so. I just hope they go easy on us Transformers fans.
