A man in Chengdu dressed as “Bumblebee”, the black and yellow Autobot from the Transformers franchise, posted outside and begged for money to support his return to his home planet, “Cybertron”, according to Sina News.
Photos posted online showed the man holding a piece of cardboard reading: “Requesting 10 yuan to find my brother Optimus Prime and return to Cybertron”. He’d actually managed to collect a few crumpled bills from sympathizers.
Unfortunately, the man’s plans to return to his home planet were soon foiled as he was escorted away by staff from City Administration and Law Enforcement Bureau.
Dream on, Bumblebee.
