Cast your memory back to Knight Rider, with a young(er) David Hasselhoff fighting bad guys with help from KITT, his talking, self-driving Pontiac Trans Am. But when the show was rebooted in 2008, the producers instead decided to use a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR. In other words, a car that has nothing to do with the original KITT from the classic TV show. Here’s how The Hollywood Reporter described the two-hour pilot episode: “Subtle product placement is one thing, but in ‘Knight Rider’ it becomes so heavy-handed that it actually alters entire scenes … Meanwhile, the Mustang logo gets displayed so often, the movie almost qualifies as a western.”
