It's Finally Time to See How KITT Rolls! New Commercial

Post by neps » Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:24 pm

We've caught another trailer! I know you guys are all tired of seeing the same old trailer, and getting yet another new thread - but this time it's worth it. There are only two small clips in this teaser that we have seen before!

Check out KITT transforming at knight and on the road. See the internals of KITT. And not to forget the great HUD shots!

Looks like NBC aired another teaser during NFL football. It focuses on the character of Sarah and her "appeal" to the NFL audience...

There is a slight hiccup from my DVR it seems (first time in over 40 right?) - where the audio/video slows down - but you get the point.

Holy Moly!

That was awsome Neil! Thanks!

Deanna Russo looks super HOTT in this commercial...

So I guess KiTT travels through some tunnel at the KiTT Cave? What's that all about?

Exactly - for security purposes the command center is underground, and requires a tunnel to get to the outside.

Indeed she does. :P

Those were two very good commercials though I'm not sure how I feel about stuff being voice activated like Turbo Boost apparently is. That might get old fast, the HUD looks great though! Nice work z00story! :good:

We're only a couple days away now from getting a chance to see the first episode online which should cause this board to go nuts. :mrgreen:

My god does Deanna look absolultey stunning, i almost have to look away because her beauty is too much to handle sometimes! Even if the show sucks its worth it just to see her! They really dolled her up for the series because there is a huge differece than how she looked in the pilot.

The Rolls commercial is fantastic - great scene picks, fitting music, good timing. The more they film the better it looks, and I really like the original-like scene that starts it off. And the HUD looks great, especially that little status bar at the bottom.

I wish this show the best of luck and hope it lasts many many seasons but the more I see of the Attack K3000 it reminds me of those cheap Tyco radio control toys my nephew looks at when we are in Toys R Us.

So far I've noticed that the scanners are not on when attack KITT is rolling.
Anyone else notice this?

I just don't understand the blue lights on the rearview mirrors or the ground effects either. I think the lightning should be red.... just my thoughts.

I think red lights would just be overkill for the red scanner, it'd be like using a red scanner with a red car. >_> <_<

Saw this other commercial tonight - it's an ensamble of all NBC actors promoting their shows. There is a couple of things here that are interesting to us.

1) They use the same san-serif typeface we've seen on the newer promos, which means it is a NBC font and not the KR font.

2) We see some additional footage of Justin and KITT. Justin mentioned to us that he did some additional takes of him interacting with the fire as if KITT was setting them off - and it looks like this commercial has a bit of that.
