Has anybody seen this commercial?

Post by KRAvengerII » Wed Mar 13, 2013 6:08 pm

I was over at my dad's house yesterday, and I saw this ad on one of the financial channels. In it, a car that looked like KITT (Couldn't tell if it was a trans am, but it sure had KITT's dashboard) was driving alongside a train. The volume was turned down, so I don't know what was said, but my dad said something like It was an ad for a computerized train, or something. Has anyone seen it?
KITT: I walked right into that one, didn't I?
Michael: More like Turbo Boosted.

There were 2 different kitts used, the GE commercial with the robots, all the scenes were my kitt, except the screen shot of the dash, that was Gary Hunters 1/2 season dash. The Locomotive commercial, KITT racing down the warehouse is my kitt, and the KITT racing the train is Gary Hunters KITT. They used the original KITT voice (William Daniels) on the GE Locomotive Commercial. :-D
