In addition to the difficulties climbing the hill, Optimus Prime was also caught when he crashed into a parked car. According to user Tiktokmonogato, the truck continued on its way, hitting the road.
This same user also shared a video showing cars and trucks returning from filming to the warehouse after filming. Children are heard in the background wanting to get the attention of the participants in the tape. “Everyone’s affection is priceless,” wrote the author of the video.
