    Hi everyone,

    I remember years back, just before the first Transformers Bay' film was released, some videos appeared on youtube showing various transformers 'accidentally' caught on video by people.

    I can remember one of the insecticons (At a kids birthday?), Grimlock stomping though a construction yard, and possible a few others.

    What... was up with those? Were they connected to the films release, or done by someone else? The bot's designs were particually G1-esk - not the swirly mess of gears they turned out to be in the films.

    Any info on these videos (or any other 'real life' style videos done of TFs) would be appreciated. :)

    Viral videos to promote the film.

    They were a big hit when they first appeared. Long forgotten, by now. I'm surprised to hear about them. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

    Cool. Where are those located?

    I was browsing through the different "hard drives" on the website after logging in with the "deceptibot" password and noticed:

    I can't access the 2nd HD on the left. Was anyone ever able to?

    Wow..I remember going through that whole site like a crackhead looking for a rock in a carpet before the movie came out. That's where we got introduced to Agent Simmons and Starscream. Lots of fun surprises on there. I was let down that nothing similar was done for either of the sequels.
