Bob Knight Officially Sells Out, Does A Commercial With A Talking Car

Monday, April 07, 2008

I'm all for people making as much money anyway they can, but this is a little ridiculous. This is a new Volkswagen commercial in which ESPN Analyst Bob Knight talks to an old VW Bug about Championships and decides to throw an oversized IKEA-like chair....

Dumb...just dumb. I did a little bit more research and I think the Bug's name is Max and he's going to be talking about cars with more people than just Bob Knight. The list includes such stars with German lineage like David Hasselhoff and Heidi Klum! So at least he's in good company. Herbie the Love Bug couldn't be reached for comment.

(Sorry about the crawl at the bottom. I've got another version loading now without it.)


Hey asshole, where've you been? Bobby Knight has been doing commercials for years that weren't half as slick as this. You either love the guy or you don't. Great commercial. Thanks for sharing it!

knight sold out long ago when he was wearing nascar-like sweaters at texas tech with all sorts of logos on them.

i actually thought the punchline was funny. [throws chair] "i may not be retired."

Yeah and you can't say shit about Bob Knight. Your article was retarded. Knights a legend.. all time winningest coach, not Wooden, the Rat, or ol Roy. Get over it. Funny commercial. But thanks for the vid..

This is America, everybody has a price. He might as well cash in on his fame because he knows that whatever he does, people still not going to like him because of how he was perceived through the media during his whole coaching tenure.

you idiot, (the poster and postmanE) like the other guy said, he's been doing commercials and been staring in cameo-esque movies for years, look it up on the 'Tube.' Hell if anything, him joining the three tweedle dumb-dees (dickie, doug, and digger) gave me the chills. And yeah he might as well cash and laugh it up. Still an alright cat, I'm suprised he has enough strength to throw lol!

Bobby Knight retired because he has alzheimers. Sad, but this what I think. He needs to make money somehow.
