Could NASCAR’s most popular driver be starring in revival of the hit NBC show Knight Rider? No. But, humor site Funny Or Die seems to think it would be a good idea. The site published a trailer Wednesday showing a fictional return the series starring Dale Earnhardt Jr. the tease: “Coming this Fall to NBC, Knight Rider has a whole new attitude”.

Fighting for the innocent with his trusty side kick. This time KITT has a whole new attitude. The latest incarnation of KITT is a Camaro with a females voice. That “new” attitude is decidedly female. In the opening scene, Earnhardt is seen running up to top of a parking garage. He yells for Kit and we can see the Camaro slowly rolling.

“C’mon!”, Earnhardt says. “I’m being chased by bad guys!”

“I’m coming!” KITT says continuing to roll slowly, “Have patience with me I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep!” MORE>>>
