We know what you're thinking, and yes, friends, it can be yours.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is just hit US theaters, and if you need a dose of action and car chases after a long workday, it's probably the one to see. The studio and filmmakers aren't the only ones hoping for the fourth film in the series to be a big hit. General Motors clearly sees a cross-marketing opportunity because it's pumping a ton of promotion into this year's sequel to the action/sci-fi/toy franchise.
If you find yourself in the theater to watch Transformers: Age of Extinction, pay special attention to the scenes set in China between mouthfuls of popcorn because you just might be seeing some of those vehicles on roads in the US in the not-too-distant future. Guangzhou Automobile Group Co Ltd. (GAC) has several of its Trumpchi brand of vehicles in the new action film, and it claims that it's trying to bring them to American consumers as soon as next year.
General Motors has gone from simply providing vehicles for the Transformers series of films to supplying actors, as Vice President of Global Design Ed Welburn will be making an appearance in the latest installment of director Michael Bay's franchise.
You've got to love weird cross-promotion opportunities. Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth film in the franchise from Michael Bay, may be one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the summer. To promote the new movie, its marketers have partnered with ridesharing service Uber to make the childhood dream of many people a reality. They are teaming up to let people hail the latest iteration of Optimus Prime and go for a ride to their destination.
We're sure this human-size Transformer would say that he does it for the kids, but somehow we think there's just as much adult-spec geeking out for anyone so in love with Transformers that they would be willing to build a costume and walk around wearing it in public. And, if we're honest, we ourselves are just geeky enough that we'd probably do it, too. For the kids, of course.
