Tonight, a friend of mine on Twitter, Peter Leung (@BaronVonClutch), asked Ralph Gilles, CEO of SRT and Beth Paretta, Director SRT/Motorsports Marketing and Operations, a great question (see image above);
“What happened to the Viper Defender?”
That is a good question, Peter. For those that don’t know the Defender was the star of a 90′s television show called – Viper. The title of this post is actually a tagline from that show.
That got me thinking, what TV shows or movies might the new SRT Viper find a role in? We already know the SRT Viper will audition on some of the world’s biggest and best racetracks this year, but will the newborn supercar seek similar fame on the streets of Hollywood?
The whole notion of Viper product placement gave me an idea – what if, instead of seeing SRT Viper in something new, we could see it in something old.
Given that Peter already mentioned the TV show Viper, what better candiate for a little throwback product placement.
In case you aren’t aware, I recently (last night) started learning to edit video. My lastest catastrophe was featured today on Hooniverse in a post titled, Meet the 2014 Ram ProMaster – America’s manliest Fiat.
Now that I had a full day under my belt of ‘editing video’ I figured I’d take a crack at a Viper spot.
I give you the new and improved opening scene from the old and not-so-great hit 90′s TV show, Viper.
Happy Motoring :)
