Long before Dirk Diggler recorded half of this song during his drug-induced downward spiral, Stan Bush rocked it for 1986's Transformers: The Movie, which was the same year Michael Bay played the role of "Goon" in an episode of Miami Vice. I saw the original Transformers movie in the theater and was blown away that most of the original robots died and on top of that, SWEARING. Couple that with a cast that included Leonard Nimoy and Orson Welles in his final role, and you've got PURE ENERGON, Friend. Recently, I tried to convince my girlfriend that the movie was "cool," but for some reason she didn't feel it held up. I have a keen sense of perception which I used to come to this conclusion when she looked at me and said, "This is garbage," fifteen minutes in.
I had never seen the music video that accompanied the laser-guided winner-rock of Stan Bush, who must no doubt be surprised that his message of victorious triumph has morphed into an ironic retard anthem. The chilling part of the video that leaves you feeling like you're taking a tarantula bath comes at the beginning when Optimus Prime tells a kid, "I leave you with The Touch."
