Smoke IS The Bandit

Well the sixth installment of Smoke IS The Bandit really is just a compliation of all the webisodes into one.  I think it’s even more entertaining to watch all at once. For your viewing pleasure- what I like to call Smoke IS The Bandit: The Whole Enchilada:

 

Also I got this in my email and I thought you all might be interested: Mobil 1 synthetic oil is giving you the chance to win a Corvette Stingray. Four randomly selected entrants will win a trip to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY (yes THAT one- where the hungry earth opened up and swallowed up 8 beautiful Corvettes)- each of those winners gets an awesome prize package that includes a key. One of those four keys opens the door to the Stingray.  There are also other prizes so even if you don’t win a trip to see The National Corvette Museum- you might win some great Mobil 1 or Corvette swag! You can’t win if you don’t ENTER! Good luck. Hopefully I will see you in Bowling Green KY. And if I do- no hard feelings but I hope my key starts the Stingray.

Aww darn it! Who else is a little disappointed that the fun Mobil 1 web series of Smoke IS The Bandit is over??!!  Yep that is right the final episode is here: (more…)

First off- I can’t believe I forgot to mention last week’s Episode 3 (The Interview) of Smoke IS The Bandit!

This is the one that introduces the character Frog played by ESPN reporter Nicole Briscoe who is trying everything in her arsenal to get an interview with Smoke but unfortunately for her, The Bandit showed up instead (well you know Tony and his LOVE of the media right ;-) ).

My favorite line: “I’m gonna call you Frog.”  But WHY is she in a wedding dress? You will have to watch the episode here to find out.

Finally in the Mobil 1 parody Smoke IS The Bandit- we see the Sheriff played by none other than Jeff Hammond- begin his pursuit of that black Trans Am. My favorite part of this episode are the “extras” sitting at the tables next to the snack stand who aren’t the least bit fazed by the car doing a burn out right next to them. Guess it has been a long day at the track without ear protection for them.  Jeff Hammond actually does a great job in character- talk about great casting! (more…)

I am STILL going through all the pictures from Vegas and getting some of them cleaned up for a post about the race.

So to hold you over- I am linking to Smoke Is the Bandit episode 2 for your viewing pleasure! Warning- “Bandit’s” giggle is infectious.

Remember the next episode should be out Thursday (yes tomorrow!)

I was sad that I missed my opportunity to see the “Smoke Is The Bandit” car at Las Vegas MotorSpeedway -it was there but on Thursday and I wasn’t at the track until Friday. But I found this great photo of Tony and the Car on from Thursday for your viewing pleasure:

FINALLY! I thought it was slightly cruel of Mobil 1 to only give us a small teaser of Tony Stewart Webseries!!  The first webisode of Mobil 1′s series Smoke IS The Bandit is out for our viewing pleasure!

Here it is for your viewing pleasure if you haven’t had a chance to see it:

Absolutely LOVE the giggle!  I love this series so far (of course I am quite biased because not only is Tony Stewart my driver but I have loved this movie FOREVER! I would love to know how long it took to create this series. I hope they will release a blooper or behind the scenes video (hint hint hint).  What do you think?! I love Hermie Sadler and Ricky Craven! Can’t wait for the rest!

Next Episode will be released March 11th! Keep your eyes peeled at the Mobil 1 Facebook Page!

I have been waiting and waiting on this since someone (Stewart-Haas Racing likely- but I don’t remember who exactly) tweeted out a picture of Tony dressed up as Burt Reynolds in Smokey and The Bandit last year. Well today we find out that this is going to be a six part web series- and we even got a little teaser video released today for Smoke IS The Bandit:

Remember to keep checking back at the Mobil 1 Facebook page for more information!

And yes I love the movie Smokey and The Bandit- I have for ever- let’s just say I think I actually own three movies on my kindle and Smokey and The Bandit is one of them.

And just because I can here is a gratuitous Tony Stewart Bandit picture for you:

So I  have two classic car things to share with you:

First one is this: You can win a chance to help Tony Stewart change the oil in one of the cars in his classics collection. I have been entering- so I hope that by help they mean hand the man a filter and some paper towels while he scoots under the car on a creeper….just in case I indeed win.  I know I should be able to change my own oil but I never have and would feel foolish not knowing what to do! So unless he feels like actually teaching me (I would be willing to learn- at $40 bucks a pop for an oil change I would be saving $$ to do it myself) I would just be handing him the stuff and thinking OMG I totally just handed TONY FREAKING STEWART!!! an oil filter!  Because pretty much that is how my brain works. Anyway I am obviously digressing!

The easiest way to enter is first LIKING The MOBIL 1 Facebook page (facebook.com/mobil1) then going to the Under The Hood (Tony’s Sweepstakes) FaceBook ap- which also lets fans vote which car will get it’s oil changed (The options are his 1957 Chevy Bel Air, his 1978 Pontiac Firebird (think Smokey and The Bandit- unless you are too young to know what I speakand then think- cool car), his 1967 Pontiac GTO, and his 1955 Chevy Nomad).  Right now it’s the 78 Firebird against the 67 GTO and I am surprised to say as of a couple of minutes ago? The GTO was KILLING the Firebird in the voting- BY A HUGE LANDSLIDE (66% to 34%).  I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I think that the overall winner of the car is going to be the 57 Bel Air BUT if I had my way it would be the 55 Nomad. If you have read this site any length of time you know that I ADORE the CHEVY Nomad and would love to own a bright yellow one.

Here is a video about the contest showing off Tony’s actual cars…too bad his Nomad is orange (I am still voting NOMAD when it’s time though).

Anyway- if one of my readers happens to win I hope you will share the experience with us here! :-) And if I will you KNOW I will- but I rarely win things so don’t get your hopes up!
