Every once in a while we see one of those flash-based spoof cartoons that are just too good to pass up. This one, which is a commercial for Australia's CarsGuide, takes a hilarious swipe at the early 80's car show Knight Rider to show how important the right car really is. From the car's request for a destination, to the constantly changing cast of women in "Day Rider's" passenger seat and the giant cell phone in a suitcase, this one has all the makings of comic immortality. The "plot" of the spoof is that Michael Day is trying to stop an illegal shipment of hair mousse. Fittingly, the character spoofing David Hasselhoff ends up laying on the ground at the end. Check it out after the jump.

      Chris, you owe me 3 minutes of my life back. If you really thought that was funny...I feel bad.
      • 7 Years Ago

      Why was the chick in the car different every time you saw her?

      Yeah, that was horribly unfunny. Come on Autoblog...

      and yet i've not seen anyone do this for Magnum P.I. or the A Team or any shows like that, yet htye pick on Knight Rier because the car could talk.. what next.. pick on the Trans Am that won the BullRun race because it had a girl driver? Having a laugh at times is fine.. but come on AutoBlog.. there's a difference between a laugh and something stupid and childish.. unfunny.

      Judging from the comments, this seems to be quite polarizing. But I'm with you Chris, I LOVED it and thought it was hilarious. Thanks for sharing it.

      I dunno, I lol'd pretty hard at that.

      I had a good time with Hammer & Coop too, so I must be part of that demographic.

      Actually, this was much better than the original show. If this had been seen on in the shows heyday, I might have watched this. The really sick joke was the series as it was.
