Michael Bay Praising Chicago

{mosimage}While filming Transformers 3 in Chicago, director Michael Bay praised the Windy City on "being a great place to shot", with Tyrese Gibson apologizing for creating the snarled traffic along the Magnificent Mile.

"Please allow me to formally apologize to the whole city for all of the traffic and for all of those extra blocks that you have to turn, just to get to where you're going. But you know, we're bringing some energy to city, and we thank y'all for graciously allowing us to be here."

Actors Josh Duhamel, reprising his role as US Army Major William Lennox, chips in:

"I hadn't spent any time here, more than maybe a day or two, and obviously this is the best time of year to be here, and it's just beautiful."
