An A Capella Version of TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE’s ‘The Touch’

Transformers: The Last Knight may not be lighting up the box office like previous installments in the series, but it’s far from the last we’ll see of the Robots in Disguise. But it might be the final Transformers movie for Mark Wahlberg, and one of our regrets for the film series is that Wahlberg never got a second chance to cover Stan Bush’s “The Touch” in the franchise that made it famous. Fortunately, there’s a new a capella take on “The Touch” to get you through the week.

The popular comedy/musical group, The Warp Zone, has released its latest a capella cover, as they sang “The Touch” from Transformers: The Movie, the 1986 animated film. Wahlberg covered the song years later in Boogie Nights. For this video, special guest vocalist Alex Faciane joined Michael Adams Davis, David Odom, Brian Fisher, Ryan Tellez, and Michael Schroeder. Normally, The Warp Zone goes for full cosplay in their videos. But this time, it’s more like they’re wearing onesies inspired by Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Soundwave, Megatron, and Starscream.

The background of the video was an inspired choice, as it seems to echo Bush’s music video from ’86 as well as a few key scenes from the first Transformers movie that were impressive animated achievements for the time. Even after 31 years, “The Touch” is still a pretty catchy song and we love it.
