    so there you have it, straight from the horse's mouth.

    the film is perfect product placement, the first film did wonders for people recognising the name 'camaro' and is ideally timed for the launch of the volt, and he loves the name jolt.

    so, the reason why they the volt had to be included at the last minute was because it was too good an advertising opportunity to pass up on, and the name jolt chosen to capitalise on this.

    I do appreciate the way Ed Welburn basically threw us 20/30-somethings a nod. It's not all kiddies.

    That was a really nice interview. I've always seen cars as like toys. A lot of people hate product placement but I think it's great a car company is as involved in these films as Hasbro because they give the Autobots character in their alternate modes too.

    I don't mind product placement when it is done well and not made painfully blatant (the scene where Maggie turns the flashcard to the camera in the first film is an example of blatant, painful product placement), but I find anyone complaining about it in any kind of Transformers fiction to be painfully ironic.

    I really love the looks of all the cars in the movie. It was very nice seeing all of the Autobots all clean, shiney and pretty on display. :3

    Wow, surprisingly, I didn't even think of that. I just recognized an SD card as being removable media. Though the idea of the military using Apple's makes me kringe...because we don't. Everything has gone to Dell now (except for the old/newer Gateways), which they showed, but Apple...no.

    lol, some kid over on Iwatchstuff.com thought that the xbox was a microwave and tried to say that it and the dewbot joined the Autobots at the end, as well as the "car" (Escalade)...
