    I mentioned this in TFGD a month or so ago and I finally finished it:

    I'M A TRANS FO MAH!

    The original idea was to have Transformers pointing at themselves or each other each time the song said "I," but it devolved into "Haha, here's something randomly funny!" and putting that in. The video has a lot of little random references, some of which refer back to our in-jokes on TFW2005. If you don't catch them all the first time, watch it again!

    Enjoy, everyone. :)

    Awesome, a TF animutation where the song actually has something to do with the video. :) 

    My fav is "Goth trannies love me and I love them too".

    Also, the TF movie crew is numb in the head if this doesn't SOMEHOW wind up in the soundtrack. Its perfect "midway-through-credits" stuff. =)

    Yeah, I'm still not sure on the timing, and it definitely needs to be cropped. It's certainly a work-in-progress right now. I just wanted to get it up and available for you guys to have a laugh.

    I might clean it up a little later.

    i thought it was, for the most part, spot on in terms of pacing and cues. some things flew a bit too fast but i thought it worked, overall.

    dont mess it up too much. theres always a tendency to overcompensate when you go back in tinker with the original cut.

    The biggest thing I'm worried about is the speed. I like some of the ridiculously fast-paced cues (like the "Buy Hasbro Merchandise!" and "80s!" tags) but the other stuff...I dunno if there's too much text with some of the quick scenes.

    Also, I hunkered down and said, "Well, goddammit, I'm gonna finish this TONIGHT" a few days ago, so not every scene I wanted from the TV show is in there. It still plays nicely, though.

    I also am not the biggest fan of how, obviously, the film and the TV show "black bars" are there. I might crop the video to a roughly rectangular shape that encompasses both.

    LOL! Wow, that was great. The pacing fits perfectly with the song, and while I missed about half of the textual jokes, that just leaves more to find on subsequent viewings! :) 

    Great jorb!
