Optimus Prime and the Transformers kick it to 'Thriller'

No, really. Thanks to the wonders of dodgy Korean computer animation, you can watch the noble Autobots shake their robotic moneymakers in a hip-swiveling rendition of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video. Oh, it's a Blastr dance party, y'all!

Given the appalling lack of taste with came with sticking a pair of African-American caricature-bots, I suppose we should be thankful that it never occurred to Michael Bay to drop a dance sequence into his Transformers flicks--though we haven't seen Transformers: Dark of the Moon, yet ... fingers crossed!

Two things strike me when watching this, well, whatever it is:

1) Why, exactly, did Optimus Prime let some young upstart take center stage? The leader of the Autobots really deserves the spotlight.

2) Part of me wants to know what the Autobots are saying to each other, before all the cyber-shimmying starts, and part of me just wants to let this exist as its own imponderable mystery, like the Bermuda Triangle or Jersey Shore.
