Finnish tv-commercial (2006 update: I GOT THE VIDEO!)

Post by Mikko L » Wed Jun 08, 2005 5:35 pm

Ok, yesterday I saw this tv-commercial for R-Kioski which is a small store in Finland that can be found in almost every city.
Anyways, the commercial had KITT and Michael (Finnish actor) and they were at the desert like in the beginning of Knight Rider. I didn't hear all what they said because my tv's volume were turned down (they talked in Finnish) but the main idea was that Michael wanted KITT to drive him at R-Kioski. They even showed the Kiosk products in KITT's monitors which was pretty cool. :P

The commercial was very well done and I hope that someone in Finland who has a tv-card will convert it to mpeg or avi, so you all can see this commercial.

If I find anything, screenshots or video, I'll post it here. :wink:

EDIT: Okay I finally got the commercial and uploaded it online.

Wow, Mikko L, I also live in Finland but I haven't seen that commercial yet! I really hope I'll see it, sounds so cool! Which channel was it on?

There was also another commercial in Finland with Kitt's scanner-idea. It was something about digital television, and in the animated commercial there was a digibox with a red scanner in it, it was moving like Kitt's. The idea of the commercial was to tell people how much better digi-tv is than normal. :)
Michael: "Someone tried to kill me yesterday."
Devon: "I have an alibi."

It was MTV3 or Nelonen, I'm not really sure. But as I said, it was very well done. At first I was like "Hey that's KITT...what is this, the picture quality is awesome". When they started to speak Finnish, I knew what it was about. :P

Edit: ok, it was MTV3 right after O.C. ended. Yesterday I sat 4 hours in front of the tv with my vcr ready, but they didn't show that commercial. BTW, It's kinda weird to just record all the commercials. :lol:

You were right! I saw the commercial one evening, it was on MTV3. It was so cool! I loved the little word-play ("älä kitise" ~kitt), which only the Finnish KR fans can understand, sorry!
The best thing about the commercial was that it didn't make the wrong-kind of fun about the series. The humor was ok and it was just fun!
The Finnish actor really didn't resemble Michael Knight at all, but that's part of the fun, I guess. :D

Don't thank me. :)

I made some research with Google on the other day and found a Finnish forum where someone was also searching for that clip. There was a user named 'Tony' who said that he had it. I registered to that board and wrote a private message to him. About an hour later he sent me the clip via msn messenger. 8)

KITT: -Where we drive?
Man: -R kiosk (Finland shop where you can buy magazines and play Lotto and other same style games).
KITT: -Why?
Man: -Lets go win money R kiosk new "vinopino" game.
