    Hey all...I was just watching ESPN Baseball tonight & I looked Up & thought I saw the TF Teaser trailer on TV...I'm thinking AWESOME...can't believe it's on TV already....the Capsule is Streaking to Mars (it's almost identical footage), The Rover unfolds on Mars, they cut to mission control(wait I don't remember this part...extended trailer), the rover does a bunch of different camera angles....then someone says they are looking for the Intelligent life on Mars (Again....that's weird, I thought the TF's werea mystery in the teaser)...

    THEN The ROVER starts to Transform!!!! not really into a robot, but into a mini Heineken Bar, complete w/ neon sign...I was like WHAT THE HELL!!!!

    Has anybody else seen this commercial...it's like Michael Bay ganked the Idea from this commercial...OR... Heineken Ganked their idea from Michael Bay... OR... the Same advertising guy pitched the idea to both Bay & Heineken & they Both used it... but there were just too many erie similarities...

    Well Josh I had no idea what Youtube was...coulda been a little nicer....

    anyway I checked it out & found an extended version of the commercial...it's about a minute long ( the one I saw was only about 30 sec, It had alot fewer of the early mission control parts...)...but you can see some of the similarities....

    Old commercial, around 1 and a half years old I belief. Heineken made it after the Beagle 2 crashed, and as another episode of their 'Beer?' running joke, which has become an instant classic here in the Netherlands. Never knew they broadcasted it outside of the Netherlands though.

    So there is even similar origins with the Beagle crash... I didn't realize it was so old...it was the first time I'd seen it...though it is possible I'd seen it before & it was just unremarkable because I didn't have a reason to pay attention to it...

    As far as possible TF commercial tie-ins, I have worked on a few ad campaigns lately featuring G1 TFs. I'm a storyboard artist. I did some stuff on the ebay "It" spots that featured TFs. I have no idea if they're actually going to be made, but it could happen. My guess is if it does happen, the spots won't air until right before the movie. If they do get made, I'll be sure to get my rep to post my boards on his website.

    It's possible the same SFX house did both commercials.
