We have to admit that any interest most of us had in Knight Rider quickly waned with the news that Will Arnett was out as the voice of K.I.T.T. But we have a new hero! You have to hand it to Turkish gas company OPET for capturing the sentiment, cheese and enthusiasm of the original series. And if you thought a Shelby Mustang was an unlikely heir to the original Pontiac, what could you possibly say about a Fiat-based Murat 124? GITT is truly the new KITT. [Source: OPET]
Upon request, here's the translation:
Boss: Mechanic Mike...
GITT: Mechanic Mike is out, who's asking?
Servant: Who's talking?!
GITT: I'm GITT, 'Güzel İnsan Taşıma Taşıtı' (Nice Person Carrying Vehicle).
Servant: The car was talking?
Cem Yılmaz: Hello there.
Woman: Mr. Cem congratulations.
Man: Here, your crystal apple award.
Cem Yılmaz: Hold on what's the rush, we just started the ad. Let's cover this up so this isn't classified as an under cover (subliminal) advertisement, right GITT?
Servant: What did it say?
Boss: If you're ready, lets go. Mike?
Cem Yılmaz: Let me slip into something more comfortable. Don't touch the car.
Boss: Our people are very uneducated and unaware of things when it comes to fuel consumption Mike. Traffic, the environment, you have a lot of work to do on these subjects.
Cem Yılmaz: Worry not! We will inform everyone! Right GITT?
Cem Yılmaz: It's me, it's me... alarm.
Boss: Anyway, this is your licence.
Cem Yılmaz: Nice.
Boss: These are your cards.
Cem Yılmaz: OPET cards. I will use these in future adventures.
GITT: Ooh, we're getting gas from OPET bro?
Cem Yılmaz: Sure thing son, OPET, your favorite. He goes nuts when he hears OPET.
Boss: Umm, before you leave I want to introduce you to someone.
Cem Yılmaz: Hopefully not someone unneccessary?
Boss: Our head technician, Banu!
-Button on dash reads 'wedding', and the car 'dresses up' as a typical wedding vehicle in Turkey.
Cem Yılmaz: I hope you don't mind, he got a little excited and went into wedding mode.
Banu: Is that the case? I designed a watch for you. This watch will allow you to communicate with GITT.
Cem Yılmaz: Oh Really (O RLY?), doll (hands Banu the doll). Lets see if it works. What time is it GITT?
GITT: You got a watch on your hand bro.
Cem Yılmaz: Good, it works. Keep the doll. Ok then, may all of this be prosperous and benificial.
Narrator: A man. A car. A fuel giant.
