Video: Mark Cuban wants to sign Optimus Prime

This new commercial has movie tie ins, ESPN tie ins, and it makes Mark Cuban the first person from the Mavericks to get a commercial after the team won the NBA title. Which is fair, since he really needs the money.

The new ESPN/Transformers 3 commercial is getting posted here because I thought it was funny.

Cuban tweeted last week about doing the Transformers 3 spot, so we’ve kind of been on the lookout for it. As for the Mavericks actually signing Optimus Prime, it really depends on if they can fit him in under the salary cap of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. And if the new CBA demands all NBA players be humans (that’s another thing the owners and players disagree on, I imagine).

    Cuban seems like the kind of guy that would spend some of his cash and build himself a mecha. God knows I would if I was him.
