Uber users get to ride in Optimus Prime truck

How cool is this?!

Folks in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Arizona and Dallas, Texas, were treated to rides in a real-life Optimus Prime over the last few days.

Ahead of the premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction, transport service app Uber let users reserve a 15-minute ride in the specially-designed truck.

The truck rolled out on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday and Los Angeles on Saturday, reported Autoweek.

Lucky Uber users who managed to reserve rides on the truck were treated to the signature "Autobots, roll out!" line and a longer monologue, reported AZ Central. 

The service was a partnership between Paramount Pictures, Uber and Western Star Trucks.
