optimus prime 640x479

Imagine how cool you’ll look walking out from a restaurant or your office and hopping on none other than the leader of all autobots, Optimus Prime? For those who don’t know what I’m talking about Optimus Prime is a character from Marvel’s Transformers and is generally loved by anyone who has ever seen a Transformers movie. With a new one slated to hit the big screen later this month some lucky Uber users will have the chance to get a ride on Optimus Prime in semi truck cab form.

Uber is a service that allows its users to summon a black cab through an app on their smartphone. The vehicles usually on offer include sedans and luxury limousines but for a short period of time users in select cities will be able to request a pickup from Optimus Prime.

The Autobot will make its first stop in Dallas today before moving on to Phoenix on June 19th. The last stop is Los Angeles on June 21st. If you’d like a pickup get the Uber app and set a pickup location. Those who’re lucky enough will get a 15-minute experience on the tricked out semi truck cab.

And from the looks of it another fan favorite Autobot, Bumblebee, will also hit streets thanks to the movie franchise’s advertising partnership with Uber. If you’re a fan of the franchise you should certainly try out your luck, maybe you’ll get to cross of taking a ride in Optimus Prime off your bucket list.
