[DMCForum] RE: [DML] My Delorean to be on VH1 and in the theaters!!

The Commercial on VH1 with my DMC is now airing as of Saturday 9/17/05!  My
car can been seen in the last 8 seconds of the commercial.

Originally I was told this spot was going to be for use in movie theatres,
but it is being shown on VH1 to promote the upcoming "I love the 80's Part
III (in 3D)"  I was given consent to put the spot on the Mid-Atlantic Club
Website for everyone to see.  (I am still waiting for the Corey Feldman spot
to air)

The video is about can be seen at:

Subject: [DML] My Delorean to be on VH1 and in the theaters!!

I just got home from a video shoot with VH1 in NYC today.  They are using my
Delorean for some promo spots for the upcoming "I love the 80s - 3D" (third
installment of the series)

I was on the shooting location from 10:00-6:30 today and it was a treat to
not only work with the crew, but to see how much interest my car generated
by passers by, the actors, and the crew!

>From what I can tell, two commercial promos were shot today.

The first has "Mr.. 80s" walking around the city with a BIG boombox, and
people freezing after they see him (not sure what this was all about...)
there were other actors dressed in some pretty outlandish 80s garb also.   I
believe that this will be a promotion used in the movie theaters in the next
couple of months.   The end features Mr.. 80s hitchhiking and catching a
ride in my car.  I did all the driving, but you don't see me in the final
shoots.   They put a plate on my car that said "I {HEART} 80s 3D"  (heart
was a symbol).   I tried to keep the plate, but the production crew said I
couldn't.  :(

The second shoot was my car with a red carpet, red velvet ropes (VIP style)
and dry ice smoke filtering out.   Little did I know, that they had Corey
Feldman set up to do the shoot!  I got to talk to him for a while and have
my picture taken with him also.  He told me he LOVED the car.  :)

The guy from the movie car rental company (who set me up with the gig and
flat bedded my car into and out of the city) told me he has worked with
hundreds of cars (some costing millions of dollars) on movie sets, video
shoots, etc... and has NEVER seen a car get as much attention as my Delorean
did.  He was amazed!

There is no set "air date" since it is a commercial spot.  If anyone happens
to catch it and can record it for me...PLEASE DO!!!!!!

I am working on putting some shots online, but here are a couple for now:

sunglasses that were used later in the shoot)
