With summer fast approaching and the dandelions appearing everywhere, it’s time to plan your yard work for the summer. One option is to pay the neighborhood kid. The other is to tune up the John Deere. Or there is the only option in my opinion: Get the Knight Rider Riding Lawn Mower.
Knight Rider graced our TV sets for 4 years and 90 episodes in the 1980’s – a very special time for me that not only included The Hoff and K.I.T.T., but other shows like the A-Team, Galactica 1980, CHiPs, and The Dukes of Hazzard. But I digress. We got some lawn to mow!
This was an easy concept for me, in line with some of my previous ideas like, The Doctor Who Dalek Sprinkler or The Gondola Skateboard from my Italian Collection; blending popular culture into everyday, functional activities.
So if Briggs and Stratton is reading this; lets make a deal on this lawnmower, complete with K.I.T.T. voice:
I am the Knight Industries Three Thousand. You may call me “K.I.T.T.”
We’ll have the most pristine lawn in the neighborhood.
