If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. Optimus Crime to be exact. Two vehicles standing in as Bumblebee and Barricade for an undisclosed promotion for the movie has been arrested by the Berlin Police.
What’s amusing is the actual statement from the police itself:
So #Bumblebee and #Barricade reckoned without our tougk-as-steel colleagues when they were cruising through Charlottenburg yesterday. Both stumbled into a traffic check of our sections 24 and 25 on Bismarkstraße in Charlottenburg around 12 o’clock.
“Since there is most likely no such a thing as road traffic regulations on planet #Cybertron, both were in for massive trouble.
So who would be surprised that both the “Autobot” as well as the “Decepticon” sported modifications, as they basically have those in their gear fluid. It was a long list:
Aside from the chassis, the tires and the lighting, both cars’ exhaust systems clearly appeared to have massive flaws. On top of that, #Barricade sported an “injury” on his rear axle. He wouldn’t tell us what had caused the dangerous loss of oil. However, there was no suspicion of an “Optimus Crime”.
Thanks to the assistance of our Haulicons, we brought both of them to planet “Dekra“. There they joined their other steel pals and waited for an expert opinion from planet Earth. The inspection institution may not Cybertron, but at least they’re the only ones of their kind there.
On the bright side, at least Bumblebee’s co-driver “Wheelie” sported a safety belt. There is reason for a worried look:
– Participation in next week’s film premiere may be jeopardized.
– The owners (39 and 27 years of age) can expect to pay a fine as well as the costs of the expert opinion.”
