NBC airs 30 sec Promo

Post by Shapeshifter » Sat Jan 05, 2008 6:53 pm

During the NFC play-off game.

Starts out like a car ad, and turns into full-tilt KITT.

Hopefully someone had their DVR going.

I'm sure someone here will be able to post it shortly. There's no way I could tolerate sitting through an NFC game.

I just starting watching it, my guide says the Jaguars vs. Steelers has about 2 hours left in it. So far, no KR commercial... :|

It looks like NBC has a network commercial just before coming back from break consistently.

Shapeshifter - do you remember when you saw the commercial? Which half for example? Advertisers sell slots based on positions - so its probably safe to say that if it aired during half time or something, it would probably air then again.

I hope someone got it from here. Because there's nothing on NBC right now that makes me want to watch that station to wait for it to air again.
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:

Very cool, I am soo glad I caught it before work! I like the whit and humor he uses just like Daniels did "But really enough about me".
The tv-movie is gonna be great! Can't Wait, I just am dissappointed on the interior and hope to see the CGI soon with digital gauges, and where the hell is the voicebox! Hopefully between those gauges. Too bad I couldn't have seen it on NBC HD, when is it on again, Shapeshifter do you know?

Thanks!

neat, yet i wish they didn't focus so much on product placement.

I don't remember old school KITT having so much badging...

Thanks for the youtube link! It's weird they aired it once but not again.

I'm willing to bet it will air during American Gladiators tonight. They might have just been testing the commercial for tonights airing.

Remember - Shapeshifter also said the cast went to an American Gladiators taping. AG runs for 8 episodes, so it may or may not be tonights episode or an episode closer to Knight Rider pic airing.

In this commercial he sounds more like KARR. As much as I want to be impressed by the "features" of the K3000, I can't help but wonder if it has self healing technology, it means the car can be damaged easier where as the original KITT was less likely to be damaged enough to require self repair. Then again it's probably a way to eliminate the need for the semi.

Funny, I still see analog guages which leads me to suspect that if they become "high tech" CG displays, then it is done during the K3000's "attack" mode sequences.

Just curious, is that Will Arnett's voice? Victor your right, it sounds like KARR. Also, They need to take off all the cobra badging. Way too much.
I hope all those aluminum panels inside flip up somehow and reveal a whole new dash, otherwise it's going to look tacky.

Interesting. The dash is still a bit off for my taste, I hope this is just a red herring.

Another thing: look closely at the computer interface. It's the same as on the NX-01 of Star Trek: Enterprise.

I know this promo was shot about a month ago, so no CG had yet been done. I'm not sure if that's Will Arnet.

It would almost be better if NBC did not show the interior of the car at all until the show especially if it looks like that. Part of what made KITT amazing to the millions of fans was in the inside of the vehicle. To show an unfinished interior really doesn't help in promotion of the car.

The reason I asked about the voice is because this voice sounds different from the one in the first teaser.

As a fan of Will and his work on Arrested Development - I'm gonna say I don't think this is his voice. As Shapeshifter said, it was shot a month ago - so it could have been made to show to potential advertisers before Will was a locked deal.

I hope. It does sound more agreesive then the friendly "Hi Mike"
