The following is part of a viral marketing campaign by Paramount Studios:

In the past week, there’s been a surge in sightings of mysterious robots in cities and famous landmarks around the world, including Tokyo, Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, Perth and even Machu Pichu. People from across the globe have been posting videos and photos of these sightings on a multitude of sites. Perhaps the most bizarre sighting so far was shot by fans at the Champion’s League final in Rome:

  1. I swear I spotted a transformer last night in Philly!

  2. I agree that these should have been released earlier.

    PS: 5 Days to go.

  3. This is a cool almost “cloverfield” like way to promote the film. I digg

  4. I have birthday on 25th

  5. These would have been amazing about 12 months ago.

  6. These were GREAT! @EnglishGavz is right. A year ago, these would have been fantastic to see. Right now, the effect they give is too little, too late. These would have been prefect to see before any of the official trailers were released, or maybe right after the superbowl teaser. Oh well, there’s a chance that these (and MORE) will show up on the DVD extras section of the dvd release. These viral videos seem to make their way to the “extras” section of many official dvd releases that are made for them.
