    My wife and I were just flipping through the channels, when we stumbled upon the local PBS station, and the International ballroom dance championships. On it were two individuals all dressed up like robots (Black spandex, with faux metal pieces of armor and helmets), doing crazy dances to Transformers effects and quotes from Optimus Prime. I swear at times they looked like they transformed into a spider and started walking around. It was very effective.

    Anyone else see this?

    I mean, everything was going fine, until Optimus Prime said 'Autobots, Transform and Roll out.' I was very confused. Why is Prime at International ballroom dancing championships?

    Prime loves a bit of Ballroom Dancing! He used to be partners with Megatron, but they had a fall out over energon and Megatron started entering competitions with his new partner, Starscream.

    Prime because insanely jealous and nearly gave up competetive dancing until his triumphant return with a 9.2 average for his 1986 olympic ballroom dancing final with Bumblebee.

    My first fanfic.

    Just hold your breath.... just in case.

    Nothing like: "Oh yeah baby.. *PFTH!* Oh my GOD *BLECH*"


    Okay back on track, I think it was pretty damn kewl that they kept flowing from one style to another, and they could mimic the damaged machine jerky movements so well.

    EDIT: Watched the YouTube video. That is just frickin' cool. I'm going to send it along to Attack of the Show.

    The first piece of music was Technical Difficulties by Julien-K from the TFTM07 soundtrack. The rest I can't place.
