Anyone see this yet?
YouTube - NASA and OPTIMUS PRIME Team Up
http://ipp.gsfc.nasa.gov/optimus is the NASA link.
Enroll your kids!
Pretty cool that the NASA is using the TF's to spark more interest in their programs.
YEAH!!! I'm old enough to remember the flight of Alan Shephard. being an astronaut was a dream of mine, but I had to make do with newspaper articles and TV
Very very cool.
Optimus inside NASA taking a tour..hee hee
That's a pretty cool vid!! Happy to see it!!
But in taking a closer look---Must admit, Optimus looks a little "laid in" there, is this for real???
edit: I've asked around, seems like the word is these are all fake vids, not sure how some folks know this but that's what I'm told
I think the preview ones are ok..but the others are said to be fake..*shrugs*
No the video I posted is legit. 2 proofs:
the link to NASA website
NASA - Home (scroll down Optimus is at the bottom)
NASA OPTIMUS PRIME Spinoff Award
and the youtube id:
nasatelevision (one of their official youtube channels with over 17.8 million views)
Of course the quality of Optimus in CGI isn't as high quality as in the movies... it all depends on the budget. Still... it's official original work.
I highly doubt the government would "fake" a video of Optimus. And... how would folks know this is fake? The video went up today?
I went to the NASA site..using your link..the 1 of Optimus inside NASA is legit..I should have been a little more clear on my meaning..but some of the other so called NASA vids...are by other people..how they got in the mix, I don't know or care.. but there are several that come up along with the one you linked..saying they're TF3 preview vids when they're just fan made..those are the ones I'm talking about, again don't know how or care how they're on the NASA site..but they are.
Oh cool! So there's kids making videos of Prime? LOL. Kinda cool that the TF's will live through a different medium. Got any linkage to the fake ones? I'd like to see them. I kinda like some of the fan made videos. Of course they quality is probably gross but ah well.
I looked at the youtube video again and some people gave it a dislike. Funniest comment on it: "now they are using fiction to lure people away form their dark secrets" LOL
^^^ Yeah, I know...folks get all paranoid about space..go figure
I used your link and just started looking at several others that came up..I did like this one pretty well... it was, imho..the best of the fakes
YouTube - Transformers 3 - Official Teaser Trailer
That one looks pretty good. I can tell it's not real but a damn fine good job on the CGI! These guys are still pretty pro in my books. Good find!
That was cool, the speech especially.
