A little over a year ago, we reported that “The Twins” Skids and Mudflap, the horrible racist caricatures from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, wouldn’t be shucking and jiving their way through Transformers 3. There was much rejoicing. However, an early review (which has since been edited) claimed that the Twins had found their way into the upcoming sequel. Bay has now roundly rebuked that claim on his website [via TFormers.com] by stating:
After the internet posting of a nice review by someone who saw Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the writer had not been clear on one thing. He misstated that the Twins are in the film. They are not. So I am offering a $25,000 REWARD to anyone who can find them performing in Transformers 3, on July 1, when the movie opens.
And what about their presence in the trailer? “Trailer houses sometimes use shots that are not in the movie! End [of] story[.] I’m don’t [sic] wasting my time [on] this!” Bay doesn’t say how you can claim your twenty five grand if you spot the Twins, but I’m willing to take him at his word.
