Embarrassing Moments In Robot History

This entry into the Robot Hall of Shame features one of the most embarrassing robot movies of all time: Transformers.

Transformers was awesome, you say? You talkin' 'bout this movie?

Perhaps you were thinking of the beloved animated film of our youth, Transformers: The Movie. Nothing embarrassing about that masterpiece, right? Oh...yeah.

Not only is the Weird Al song horribly miss-matched to the scene, but things quickly degenerate further when the universal greeting is first uttered. "Ba weep granna weep ninny bong?" And then the dancing. Oh, and the "Me Grimlock not kisser" line. And Eric Idle's annoying, distorted television announcer voice. And--

Guess you can't blame Michael Bay for everything.
