Feeling hungry and mischievous, Richard Blakeley and I headed down to McDonald’s for some good old American food. I put on the Optimus Prime helmet and I was transformed into Optimus Prime. Being a transformer isn’t easy, let me tell you. I tried to order a happy meal with a boy toy when they asked me to come to the front window. Upon arriving they called the manager who came out to write down my license plate information on my car! Not only did they call the police on us, but they are now asking that Gizmodo and the Consumerist of Gawker media remove the video from the site. Little to they know I also filmed it on Sarah TV on the Justin.TV network and if you really have the time search my archives for July 2nd, 2007 at 4:15PM.
This is what they said:
“I am the manager at this McDonald’s and I want you to remove this video from your site before I take legal action. They have no right to video tape us. If I still see this posting on July 5,2007. I will forward their names and your website to my corp office and start legal action.
please reply to me asap”
We should protest! This is discrimination against robots!
