He's big. He's black. He's an international superstar. And he's in Japan.
We are, of course, referring to KITT, the real star of NBC's late, great 1980s primetime hit, Knight Rider. Sure, there was an actor on that show as well, but when we were in grammar school, we were all about the car, not that guy. (Who, by the way was recently seen on the E! True Hollywood Story sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with "Don't Hassel the Hoff." No, we're not making it up.)
And those of you fortunate enough to pay a visit to the Tokyo Auto Salon should note that you aren't seeing double -- it appears that two KITTs are on hand at the show. This is both thrilling and sad at the same time. Thrilling because there's always room for more KITT. Sad because it means that there are more Trans Ams on the floor at the Tokyo Auto Salon than the Detroit Auto Show this week. Our world has been turned upside-down.
