Optimus Prime Presents the Top Ten List

Last night Optimus Prime (CGI version) with Peter Cullen doing the voice appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman to read "Top Ten Things That Sound Cool When Spoken By a Giant Robot." Cullen does the best he can with weak material but the CGI wasn't bad for something put together for a comedy segment. Thanks to Feris for the link.

    Not the funniest of skits but Prime made it work. Besides, any chance to see movie Optimus animation and hear Mr. Cullen's voice is worth it. A Rabbi... ROFL. If this had been in Conan's show i think it would have been a lot more fun.

    P.S.: Was it just me or did that Central Park squirrel joke seem more like a Skids and Mudflap kind of joke?

  4. the taters line was best. In fact I think overall the lines on the top spots were the least funny.

  6. Wow, and I thought Cullen was serious about his role as Optimus Prime. That's why he didn't do it for Robot Chicken. It seemed funny at first, but then it got kinda... you know, "Enh". But still, I hope Cullen didn't feel humiliated (which I'm sure he did). If I'm right, then I feel sorry for Peter Cullen.

  7. Additional Note: When I said "it seemed funny", I meaant this top ten thing. The RC sketch was funny throughout!

  8. Why would Optimus Need a cab? Letterman is an idiot.

  9. Conan FTW!

    Letterman has lost it in my opinion.

    Still, it was cool to see Prime and hear Cullen. I thought he handled something he was probably forced to do by the studio pretty well.

  10. As many others have already said, it's always a treat to hear Peter Cullen's voice, but Letterman's Top 10 has never made me laugh...

  12. This was incredibly unfunny.

    After Prime says his parents wanted him to be a rabbi, Letterman says "There's something about this guy I don't like."

    Letterman hates Jews?

  14. HAHA Glad to hear that others just don't find letterman or the ramblings of that bald guy funny either! Agree totally. Jokes = the suck. Optimus = friggin awesome. Just transformed Leader Class Prime for the first time like 5 minutes ago :P
