KR 2008 Ad in Times Square, NYC

Postby goldbug » Wed Sep 03, 2008 10:30 pm

A week or so ago I speculated that NBC would set up a banner of some type in Times Square, New York City for KR 2008 (as they had done for "Bionic Woman" before its debut). Looks like I was right! I snapped these pics early this morning. Admins, please feel free to copy the pics and host them on KRO. I'll leave these up for at least a week.

Very cool, this is a good sign! It looks like different artwork than the one in Burbank, not just cropped down... it looks like they took out the car in the foreground. It’s so exciting to see it up in Times Square!! Thanks Goldbug!!

Nice catch Goldbug, I knew it had to be in Times Square sooner or later, I am going to try and see it tonight and see how it looks! I really believe with all this promotional stuff the show will do good!

Awesome! I'm glad to see NBC got one up there. Now how about cool billboard in little old Pittsburgh?

Yeah, like that's ever going to happen :lol:

Thats a really sweet banner! looks like the promotion machine is going into overdrive!

Every new thing concerning KR that appears is just making my anticipation levels for the show sky-rocket!

I hate living in the UK! we always get everything last!!! :(

Off topic question, is that big-ass Sharp tv a real model?

If it is, I`d love THAT in my living room lol

I would be more than happy to advertise the new show in public everywhere I go, all they need to do is give me my very own GT500KR KITTed out, just cover it with Knight Rider advertising. :lol:
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

I was thinking that the only places we've seen billboards are on NBC owned places. I'd be curious to find them renting out space in the subways or on bus depos. Cause right now, they're only spending internal money on promoting the show - it costs them nothing really to air an ad on NBC - lets see how much external push they give.

I'm not sure they will, seeing as KR is already rated with the highest awarness rate of any new show.

But I like PHOENIXZERO'S idea with the car. I'll take one too! :lol:

Only if they made KI3T look like he was jumping out of the poster... :D That would be so awesome... :good:
But this poster NBC is using at the moment is good nonetheless. :)
