Transformers – MTV Intern Vignette


Viacom Velocity (USA)

Project Title: Transformers – MTV Intern Vignette
Client or Class Name: Paramount Pictures -

Autobots assemble! To invigorate the fourth installment in the live-action Transformers film franchise with a fresh message, MTV/VH1 and Paramount Pictures enlisted YouTube/Vine star and teenage voice acting prodigy, Jake Foushee. The comedically-inspired vignette features Jake bringing his unique talents to the MTV offices as “Intern for a Day.” Encountering a variety of seemingly everyday tasks, Foushee speaks in the trademark booming voice and prophetic language of Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, to the surprise and befuddlement of colleagues. Foushee is known for tackling many well-known actors and characters, including Morgan Freeman, Jason Statham, Joe Swanson and Peter Griffin from Family Guy, Ted from Ted, Christian Bale’s Batman, and Duke Nukem. Due to his rising social celebrity cred and A-List endorsements from Hollywood luminaries such as Ellen, MTV identified Jake as a perfect fit to provide this longstanding franchise with a breath of fresh air that would resonate with Millennnials.
