There’s a Knight Rider GPS SatNav out now for fans of the old Knight Rider show (yes, I know there’s a (not awful, but not great) remake pilot out there and a series coming soon) that has the old KITT voice, but for the new series, NBC should make downloadable voices available for popular SatNavs free of charge? You could have Val Kilmer alongside John Cleese.
But why stop there? You could have James McAvoy or Angelina Jolie from the film adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic Wanted; Peter Cullen voicing Optimus Prime from the Transformers film (“Freedom is the right of all sentient beings – as is turning right 300 yards ahead”) and Steve Jobs as an iPhone 2.0 GPS addon (“One last thing…turn left to reach destination”).
The only area this might not work is in getting porn film tie-ins. After all, do we really want someone saying ‘faster, faster, faster’ in these safe driving times?
