"Cobra Kai" & Acura    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-08-2018 09:17

Watched the new "Cobra Kai" show on youtube, which is a continuation of the 80's "Karate Kid" series.

Daniel LaRusso is now a car dealer owner who seems to specialize in luxury brands - Audi being the most prominent and sponsor of the show.

During a commercial, he mentions that he sells Acuras as well. During 1 scene they needed to give Johnny a car so his wife says "Don't give him an Audi. Don't even give him an Acura. Give him something off the used lot".

Nice to see Acura get some exposure but they did seem to put it below Audi (a sponsor).

From the motortrend link -

"In a TV show I just finished, I was driving an Audi A7, and I was like, ‘You know, maybe I’ll look at this one next time if I can afford it,’” he adds."

Anyone that watched the show saw that it was clearly an S7...he's not much of a car guy apparently.

Ha! A few months ago while feeling a bit nostalgic, I re-watched all the original Karate Kid movies. I then heard of Cobra Kai, but initially dismissed it. I finally decided to watch the first couple of episode and, to my surprise, it was actually not awful.

A 2017 Honda Ridgeline appeared in The First Kill (2017).

You're not taking that thing out tomorrow? Are you?

Yeah, why not?

That thing's gonna get stuck before you can get started. You take the Ridgeline. That'll handle anything up there.


It's kinda funny how they gave it a powerful V8 sound. :)
