The Honest Trailers: Transformers Edition is Knee-Slappingly Truthful

 - May 26, 2012
From the creators of Honest Trailer: Titanic comes Honest Trailers: Transformers Edition. In the hilarious parody, the group not only spoofs Michael Bay, Megan Fox and Shia Labeouf, but also the product plugs seen throughout the film. The amusing fake promo is honest about the film franchise, which has captured the interest of millions around the world.

Pointing out truths like "from a children’s cartoon designed to sell toys... comes a movie designed to sell toys," the franchise that has garnered tons of fans throughout their three huge blockbuster films is parodied in a lighthearted way.

The parody is a hilarious reminder of placed advertisements in movies that are sometimes a little less-than subtle.
