Also, please look at the glee on Frasier's face when he got to see Imagine Dragons thanks to Bay.
More importantly, despite his numerous cinematic flaws, Bay knows how to make his sets awesome. Frances McDormand, who apparently signed on for the third Transformers just to ruin the Not-Megan-Fox character for her teenaged son, was immediately blown away by Bay's energetic masculinity. Everything on set was loud, brash, and sexy -- words you probably didn't hear a lot on the Fargo set. The explosions, the action, and the energy had McDormand running around like a madwoman and she loved Bay for it:
Why couldn't she just hang Shia LaBeouf's actual head?
Meanwhile, John Turturro says he cried on the set of Transformers II, because Bay had managed to convince the Egyptian royal family to let them shoot atop an actual ancient pyramid. "You just don't get to do this in movies. You don't get to shoot in a place that's 4000 years old," Turturro stammered, overwhelmed by the fact that he, a mere mortal, could bear witness to a marvel of the ancient world, all thanks to 1980s cartoon robots who love to get hammered on magical robot juice.
