Just like the now defunct Snakes on a Plane phone call site. Get it while it's hot.

God, this is so lame.

Long pauses between segments, bland dialogue, not even a hint of humour... I wouldn't even bother sending this people I hate.

This thread is useless without the President's phone number.

Heh, thanks for this. Sent one to my roommate.

I sent one to a big TransFan I know, thanks.

That sucked - it couldn't pronounce any of the names I entered...

I know it's lame & marketing & blah, blah, blah, but I did this immediately upon seeing the post and it worked great for my co-worker who is a Transformers dork. Thanks, patr1ck!

Yesterday, I took my brand-new bike out for its first ride and got into an accident, forcing me to ride eight miles on a sprained ankle. Then the transmission failed on my car, stranding me in a shopping mall parking lot with groceries and a sprained ankle. Then I saw the Transformers movie.

The movie was the worst part. I hate you, Michael Bay.

I have Optimus Prime so I could get all of the soccer channels.

It would be so much better if they had Jazz from the movie do it in his jive talk. Or at least Megatron.

I think I would be murdered by any friends I sent this to. They're a bunch of violent bastards.

I wonder if Rush will auction off the voice mail recording I just left him from Hillary?

It IS Sunday, after all.

Thank you so much for posting this. My friends and relatives will be pissed.

I would only have Optimus Prime call my friends if I could make him personally apologize for selling out their childhoods to Michael Bey.

Is nothing, not even the rabid marketing and mass-produced crap thrown at us when we were easily impressed children, sacred?

WTF? This great! Except for that the part that Optimus Prime has a major system fault that precludes him from speaking most non-Western names...other than that, great!

But the absolute best part? Thoughtfully giving out my (so-called) friends personal details to Paramount Pictures parent company, global mega-corp Viacom.

Wow! It's like I am really a participant in my own demise!

My Transformers-obsessed friend will love this even if it is blatant marketing etc.

This is blatant marketing, but still cool. I turned my huge-transformers-geek friend back into a little kid for a few seconds. He said he actually froze for a moment after it said his name, and then responded "Optimus?"

Hmm, let's see what the privacy policy says
Whatdya know, there is no privacy policy!

I don't care that it's blatant marketing, I love these things for whatever reason, especially Optimus.

Would it be wrong if I had him say "I died for your sins"?

I wish I lived in an American State, rather than this Semi-American state I do live in.

Then maybe, just maybe I too could receive a humourous telephone greeting by some text to speech engine out there.

I can only hope and dream....

"...your so-called lover..."

I wouldn't piss on the movie if it was on fire but I'll mess with this all day long. Thanks!

can i get this optimus prime to call me on my special 900 number so i can charge him $50/minute to hear my duck jokes?
posted by bruce at 9:38 PM on October 14, 2007


I have heard that this movie, which should be about robotys hitting each other, contains next to no robots hitting each other. DO NOT WANT.
posted by Artw at 10:27 PM on October 14, 2007


Does it have a 'comedy' sequence in the middle that seems to go on for about four years that kills any slight enjoyment you might have had stone dead. And is every single action sequence filmed in shakey-cam blurovision so YOU'VE GOT NO IDEA WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON!!! BAY, I HATE YOU! HATE YOU!... sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

Aw, no late night calls from Optimus. It restricts when it can call. And I was looking forward to Optimus After Dark...
