    Anyone else catch the nifty TF cameo on the Daily Show tonight? They did asegment on malfunctioning voting machines in the United States, and had a fake newspaper with a headline along the lines of "Electronic Voting Machine Goes Mad and Starts killing People" (but less lame of course). For the photo on the newspaper they used the EJ Su image of Ratchet from one of the IDW's infiltration covers.

    Yeah I caught it just now. Pretty neat. The reporter guy also said something along the lines of "once we take care of the Transformers there should be no more problems." LOL I enjoyed it.

    I don't have a video link, but you might be able to see it on Comedy Central's website. I loved that so much that I'm going to record it tomorrow using my PC DVR and take screencaps. :) 

    Also important to note that the segment was by the Daily Show's John Hodgeman, who plays PC in the Mac commercials. (I keep expecting Mac to come out....)

    And actually there was also a Transformers reference on Colbert Report right after that episode. It was in the skit with Tim Meadows. I found it very odd that both shows would mention transformers on the same night....

    Pop culture references often seem to come in sets between the two shows.
    They've actually played off of that before.

    The ep is on again tonight, so I'm going to get my screencaps. :) 

    They've played off the Mac v. PC thing? When?! I can't believe I missed that!

    ...who's the guy who plays the Mac, anyway? I know I recognize him from at least one movie....

    The guy who plays Mac is Justin Long. He was in Ed, Galaxy Quest and some bad teen movies with people saying Jesus Christ.*


    Oh yeah, Jeepers Creepers. Which is a euphamism for 'Jesus Christ!' ;)
