Watch TRANSFORMERS’ Optimus Prime Transform into a Huge Jerk

You might have noticed something very strange in the trailers for Transformers: The Last Knight. Well, you have probably noticed all sorts of strange things in these trailers. But most worrisome to us amid all that insanity is the apparent evil turn by the moral compass and heroic leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime. We are sad to say that things are even more dire than we feared, because it would appear that Prime has completely broken bad. Somehow, it is even worse than that. Because he is more than just a villain now.

He is really freaking obnoxious about it.

Nerdist Presents is proud to bring to you “Bad Optimus Prime,” a look at just how much of a jerk he really is now. Because it’s not just enough for him to needlessly blow things up and attack former brethren; he has to punctuate each terrible action with an absurd and groan-inducing taunt.

However, that’s nothing compared to how he needlessly mocks people by calling them childish names. Oh, cool, you put the word “butt” in his name. Second grade boys are gonna love you. And what’s his problem with celebrities? Who doesn’t like Stanley Tucci? If Megatron ran into him even he’d be like, “Oh my god, Stanley Tucci! I loved you in The Devil Wears Prada!

Purple Eyed Optimus Prime

And every time you think things can’t get any darker, Bad Optimus Prime goes ahead and proves just how evil he really has become. This guy must carry the Matrix of Being a Jerk!

…Sorry, that’s Bad Optimus Prime bad.

What do you think of this evil version of our beloved hero? Which one of his terrible taunts was your favorite? Tell us in the comments below.
