I’ve yet to introduce my kids to the awesomeness that is Transformers, but we have watched more than our fair share of Thomas and Friends. As such, I think this video mash-up of the two titles — created by ​“professional Transformer devotee” James Farr for his son Vector — might be the best possible introduction to everyone’s favorite Cybertronians.

Well done, Mr. Farr. You’ve made geek dads around the world both proud and envious beyond measure. And it should go without saying that this is far more enjoyable than all of Michael Bay’s Transformers movies combined.
