    I'd say that since the video is intended to be propaganda that it's motive is two fold:

    1. To try to get totally "uncommitted" Autobots to join (through actions and emotions).
    2. To try to get previously recruited Autobots to rally more to their established cause.

    IRRC, the Autobots were civilians who became fighters due to necessity of cause, not that the were already an organized army. A video transmission such as this one would possibly help strengthen their forces on a few different levels. :) 

    Also, it's a video for the Elite Guard. This video would also be working on the level internally within the Autobot ranks to get some of the gung-ho bots to become more enthused about [potentially] moving up the ranks.

    The music for this video was the only thing I didn't really care for. I think it could have still been funny, but not have been so silly. Someone mentioned Starship Troopers, and I would agree that something that went more that route (being so over the top without being silly) would have been a bit better.

    This!

    Aside from my one [minor] nitpick, this video was really/I] well-thought out and all around great. Keep up the good work, TCC :thumb

    Actually, I thought it sounded like a young guy trying to sound like a gruff Army Sergeant, which happened also to sound like Kup....

    It's G1 in Kup's distant youth, as is plainly evident based on the unchanged Megatron and the presence of Unicron's lieutenant Scourge.

    ...I got nothin'.

    From what I understand, the continuity is Animated, but a long long time ago, it's just the aesthetic that is a more G1/Classics-ish style, instead of the more fluid Animated designs.

    Pretty good video. Would be even cooler if Kup actually had both of those hands.
