During our short existence, we've made some pretty flimsy connections betweens things happening in the world and sports. Like we've done this multiple times. It's part of our charm. But we may have outdone ourselves with this one. Admittedly, this is as flimsy as it gets. But we believe you will be entertained, regardless.
On Tuesday, the trailer for Michael Bay's new blockbuster movie about #benghazi hit YouTube. On Friday, Major League Baseball's looming trade deadline presents the possibility of many blockbuster trades––nearly all of which will later be denied by the New York Mets front office, who will blame social media for the failure to add a bat.
So in honor of Blockbuster Week—a term that we've now coined specifically for this story, and will certainly look to trademark for future profit—and to prepare your mind for Cole Hamels going to the Rangers and the Mets demanding that the Tigers give up Yoenis Cespedes for literally nothing, here is a supercut of the opening scene for the trailer of every Michael Bay movie in chronological order (completists may ask why the 1994 Meat Loaf music video or 1990 Playboy centerfold video that Bay directed do not appear. But we are limiting this to only his cinematic releases. We have standards.).
So yeah, this was a flimsy connection. Mostly, we just wanted to show you the supercut that we created because we believe it should be shared with the world. Don't pretend you didn't enjoy it.
