Michael Bay Blows Up Earth & Everything In 'Transformers 3' Super Bowl Spot

The Playlist By The Playlist | The Playlist February 7, 2011 at 12:49AM

Man, watching the reactions to this one on Twitter was epic and awesome. It was like the sound of 5,000 nerd boners just light up your feed. Love your shit blowed up real good? Michael Bay certainly delivers with this Superbowl ad from "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Fanboys are in a tizzy right now and yes, it looks impressive, it's well cut and there's mega explosions, etc. But like "Transformers 2" will it be even semi-coherent? Like that picture, will it make you want to punch someone, perhaps yourself for having paid $12 bucks, in the face? Remains to be seen, but geeks will surely be frothing at the mouths for the next few weeks. The 3rd -- and final? -- "Transformers" film hits July 1, 2011 in the 3D-filming that Bay previously hated. Watch it below.
