Amazon – Prime Day: Fr many the name has a completely different meaning


Every year the Amazon Prime Day is a highlight for numerous banks. For others, however, the word “prime” has a completely different meaning. They now point out on Twitter who the true “Prime” is.

Every year, shopping enthusiasts feverishly look forward to Amazon Prime Day and hope to make great bargains. For many the word Prime has a completely different meaning and the online mail order company Amazon has nothing to do with it: Transformers Optimus Prime!

To prevent Optimus Prime from being forgotten, Twitter is currently being flooded with memes and texts to remind people of the modular robot way of life. It’s not for nothing that the first film in the series earned over 700 million US dollars at the box office in 2007.

Don’t forget the true Prime
Never forget who died for it.

Times like this is when you need to remind people what this day is really about. #PrimeDay #primeday2019 #OptimusPrime #Transformers

Everyone is all about #PrimeDay, but we real nerds knew him as Orion Pax back in the day. #Transformers
