New KR billboard on NBC building in Burbank!

Post by Sue » Mon Aug 25, 2008 5:45 pm

NBC has a really cool billboard up on their building in Burbank. Cars are flying through the air, it looked awesome! I stopped my car in the middle of the street just to take some pictures.

Hey Sue, GREAT find! :good: I want this as a poster so bad! It wouldn't make a bad wallpaper either! I wonder if we'll be seeing more of this kind of promotion, maybe billboards? :!:

Cool. Last year I was over there and there was a poster the same size for Bionic Woman. Let's hope Knight Rider doesn't share the same fate.

Is it just me, or is that very reminiscent of KITT blowing through the two security cars outside the ComTron building in Knight of the Phoenix?

I'm not sure that they'll have planned it that way, but it definitely invokes a very familiar feeling within me.

That is awesome! And Matthew, I agree, the first thing I thought was the Knight of the Phoenix scene, too!

If this is a hint of what we can expect from the series, I think we've a lot to look forward to.

Wow! BEAUTIFUL! Very old school IMO because it reminds of the Knight of The Phoenix with KITT smashing through the cars and the promo poster they had for it!

Definitely Paul, :good:

I know there are a number of people that are understandably hesitant, but I truly believe that the people making this series are making as great of an effort as humanly possible to ensure that it appeals to us older fans, along with the new fans that it'll need to remain on the air.

Wow, what a sweet looking poster. That's bound to catch some attention. NBC should put that in Times Square. Thanks for posting it Sue. :)

Compare to the way they promoted the original KR: (Sorry, this scan is probably 15 years old and I need to redo it larger someday!)

I think the two images look very similar in tone and style. That's a good thing.

I agree, hopefully within the coming weeks there will be some sort of Times Square promotion going on.

I think they need something like an actual front end of KITT coming out the side of the wall. They have something like that at the CITY TV station in Toronto with their news truck. Maybe its just me, but that thing is cool..and an attention grabber.

That would be pretty cool. Seeing something like that would make me think, "Hmm. Guess KITT got stuck while turbo boosting." :P
