You can hail Optimus Prime from the "Transformers" franchise via the Uber car-hailing service in Los Angeles this Saturday.

Uber has teamed up with Paramount Pictures' Michael Bay and the coming-of-age drama "Transformers: Age of Extinction," which is set to open in a very loud manner (Skrillex has been tapped for sound design for the film -- fair warning) on June 25.

With just one city remaining in this publicity tour, those who want to get a ride in Optimus Prime are directed to select the Autobots option upon opening the Uber app, tap "set pickup location," and then tap "roll out!"

Uber says that Optimus Prime will only be available for a 15-minute ride, so if you're trying to get to LAX with a ton of luggage, it's probably not the best option...particularly since there's only one Transformer taking part in this promotion.

"There's only one Optimus Prime, so making contact will be difficult and may take many tries. But don't give up!" Uber writes on its blog.

The fictional anthropomorphized truck made a stop in Dallas a few days ago, and it's in Phoenix today, available from 1-7 p.m local time.
