‘Knight Rider’ talking car KITT taunts David Hasselhoff in Samsung smart home ad
See the original posting on The Verge
How smart is Samsung’s smart home? Samsung thinks it’s smart enough to make one of the most famous smart products ever pretty darn jealous. Its new ad has David Hasselhoff trying to pitch smart home products, only to have his Knight Rider costar KITT start causing a scene.
Yeah, it’s an increasingly dated reference, but the ad’s in on the joke. “You ever seen Knight Rider?” Hasselhoff asks a boom operator. Her reply: “I think my dad may have mentioned it.”
