Just noticed how popular Knight Rider is in Finland!

A girl in my class said that everytime there computer starts up, the Knight Rider tune plays, my mothers boss's phone ringtone is Knight Rider, A shop called R KIOSKI made an advert with a finnish guy with Hoffs hair and Knight Rider clothes, and KITT advertising food!

I can't find the advert on the internet or on tape though, sorry.

Tell me about it. Knight Rider still rocks in our country.

Maybe we all finnish fans should join our forces and build up a
finnish database about Knight Rider for those who seek information in our
native language. I've been thinking about it for a long time.

And the commercial... It's right here. Dug up by Mikko L (who did wonderful job by hunting it down).

[EDIT] Fixed the link

that ad actually looked pretty good when i saw it but all the lights in KITT are off really except for the tv to advertise on it so people wouldn't look at everything else

Speaking of Finland, Children OF Bodom's Lead Guitarist/Vocalist Alexi Laiho wore a Knight Rider shirt in their "IN YOUR FACE" video. It's off their new album.
Heres a picture of him with the shirt.

I think the younger people in Finland start interesting of this show after they re-run it in television last year.
Kids who i speak also think it was a new show and they wont believe me when i try say i see that same show when i was a kid :?

There is also few kitt and karr replica builders in Finland.
