It is already well established that McG is the worst, and that Michael Bay is the worst, independent of each other. But now they are going head to head in a race to see who can be the absolute worst. SPOILER ALERT: McG wins. /Film explains how we got here:
A feud between Michael Bay and McG has been developing since January when Bay took a shot at McG’s use of a big giant robot in Terminator Salvation: “We’ve seen certain movies coming out even try to duplicate Transformer size robots in their ads,” wrote Bay. “Please, come on.”
McG quickly responded “”It bothers me to tell you the truth. Ultimately, our large robots have nothing to do with the Transformers robots. I say with respect, giant robots have been the theme of film for a real long time.” And then the new Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Superbowl teaser aired which many believe ripped off the flickery transmission intro that was used in the Terminator teaser trailer. Bay then commented that he “would love to see my robots take on Terminators”.
Right. Giant robots have been the theme of film for a real long time. Hellloooo? Robot Getting Married? Roboting Henry? Giant Robot Milk? I’m actually hard pressed to think of a film for which giant robots is not the theme.
Anyway, blah blah blah, giant robots ))<>((, back and forth forever. But in his latest volley in the feud, McG has taken things to an incredible new level. It’s basically the douchebag “nuclear option.” I’m talking, of course, about the dick measuring contest.
“Michael Bay has a big cock,” McG says to Details Magazine . “But I’d like to believe mine is bigger.” McG smiles. “If he’s up for it, we can both reveal ourselves on the Spartacus steps at Universal and put the question to rest.”
Hey, are you going to finish that?
Can I have some?
I challenge McG to a noose measuring contest!
Unbelievable. I know it was just a toss off quote in a Gentlemen’s Magazine said to get a well-timed rise out of people (Terminator: Salvation, in theaters May 21). I think we all know how media-baiting works. But also Jesus Christ. McG is really a horrible dude.
I hope he and Michael Bay manage to find a way to make peace. And by peace, of course, I mean silence. I hope they find a way to make silence. Shut up forever, dummies.
